Nate Silver is getting slammed for trying to make fun of the Red Sox cheating scandal

A report by Michael S. Schmidt of The New York Times says the Boston Red Sox were caught stealing signs against the New York Yankees using Apple Watches. The scandal is not terribly unlike the cheating scandals that have plagued their local NFL brethren, the New England Patriots, especially "Spygate." Nate Silver of ESPN's FiveThirtyEight seemingly tried to start a social-media meme making fun of the Boston-area teams and their alleged cheating ways, and is getting slammed for the effort.
