More than three months after the suspension was imposed related to the 2017 Houston Astros signature theft scandal, the results of a similar investigation into the Boston Red Sox have yet to be announced.

Several members of the Red Sox 2018 have left this week to express doubt that the investigation will reveal violations of the same magnitude as the violations against Astros, which triggered the dismissal of Sox manager Alex Cora, Mets manager Carlos Beltran and Houston A.J. manager Hinch and his GM Jeff Luhnow.

One day after the 2018 World Series MVP Steve Pearce call the MLB investigation “a joke like that,” former reliever Joe Kelly chose descriptors that are even strong.

“Everything was a disaster for me,” Kelly said while watching a replay of Game 3 of the 2018 World Series on WEEI. “Now sitting at this point without playing baseball and no results of the investigation, I just feel like I’m dreaming? Is there actually an investigation? This is like the Bogeyman series, what’s the problem with this?

“From the start, I just thought it was laughing loud and funny. Now this is the last thing that is on people’s minds clearly with how the world is currently. Every time an investigation is carried out, I am interested to see what is in the investigation.”

Commissioner Rob Manfred said that MLB had completed its investigation into the Red Sox for allegedly using illegal electronics to steal signs, but the findings will not be released until they can’t continue to play following the coronavirus pandemic.

“If there is cheating involved with how good our team is, we should win every game,” said Kelly, who now leads the Dodgers – the team defeated by Boston in five matches in the Fall Classic.

“We shouldn’t lose innings if there is some cheating involved, which will be much more fun because we will win in four. We will sweep the playoffs and make it very, very fast and be able to go to Hawaii or go to Mexico and go on vacation much faster than we did. “

On Tuesday, during the replay of Game 1 of Fall 18 Classic also at WEEI, Pearce had offered the same thought on the accusation.

“That was a joke for us,” Pearce said. “When it came out, we all joked about it. We just want this past us. We win it fairly and honestly. Whatever they accused us of, we all liked, “I don’t believe this is even a problem.” After the report comes out, we will all be free.

“You don’t like it, especially because we are champions and personally I got the award. And we have this floating above our heads when we just have an amazing season. We have a perfect team and good friendship with everyone and then It’s just thrown here. We just like, “What is this?” We just want it to go away. We just want to play baseball. I think there are other bumps on the road. “
