The Boston Red Sox reportedly stole signs using an Apple Watch over the course of several weeks, including against the New York Yankees. Naturally Twitter had a field day with that news on Tuesday and the outpouring of tweets was absolutely spectacular.

If the Mets tried using an Apple Watch to steal signs, the watch would spontaneously burst into flames and give everyone 3rd-degree burns

#RedSox punishment for their Apple Watch sign-stealing should be that they have to start David Price in the postseason.

What's big deal with using the Apple Watch to steal signs? If they were streaming through At Bat they were getting them a batter late anyway

The Red Sox are scoundrels who have cheated the game but they did it to the Yankees so I'm pretty cool with it

Not sure what's more embarrassing. That the Red Sox stole signs, or that someone on the Red Sox wears an Apple Watch
