Rangers say alleged sign-stealing 'not a story'

Yorvit Torrealba confirmed that he and the Rangers believed that Andruw Jones was stealing the catchers' signs from second base Wednesday, and Torrealba said something to Jones during the game.

But neither he nor manager Ron Washington considered Jones' actions to be a big deal and said it's just part of the game.

"You think that's a secret that guys are doing that?" Washington said. "There'a a lot of teams out there doing that. ... To me, it's not a story."

Torrealba said something to Jones during a visit to the mound after he saw something and the middle infielders also sensed that signs were being stolen.

"We could all be wrong, but we could all be right," Torrealba said. "So, I decided to say something. I don't take it personally. I don't take any credit from them. I don't even think they needed to do that. We were making a lot of bad pitches, and they hit a lot of mistakes."
