Many around Major League Baseball are furious about recent accusations of electronic sign stealing against the Houston Astros. The New York Yankees were ahead of the curve when it came to expressing their frustration.

Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin and Astros hitting coach Alex Cintron were reportedly involved in a serious verbal altercation regarding sign stealing during the ALCS.

Nevin confirmed previous rumors that he argued with Cintron during Game 1 of the ALCS.

The Yankees dugout took issue with Houston's, which led to Cintron making a lewd gesture in return. A source also says Cintron repeatedly whistled to signal pitches to his hitters.

Nevin responded to that by allegedly using obscenities and indirectly threatening Cintron through Astros third baseman Alex Bregman.

Managers A.J. Hinch and Aaron Boone also traded words. The Yankees asked Major League Baseball to investigate the Astros after the incident, and MLB obliged, ultimately finding no wrongdoing.

Nevin's altercation with the Astros dugout ultimately served as foreshadowing, as MLB's offseason investigation into Houston's supposed sign-stealing powers on into the Winter.
