This year, Carp was hitting only .198 in 42 games—and had requested a trade. The 28-year old...

Mike Carp Scoffs At NYY Sign-Stealing Charges

It must be tough to have a $228,106,125 payroll and be fighting for your life in the "second" Wild Card race. Maybe that's why The Evil Ones are behaving in such Bush League fashion by charging other teams with sign-stealing. In their last two series they have accused both the Red Sox and Orioles of pilfering signage—and specifically fingered Mike Carp of The Carmine...
