A Sign-Stealing Scandal in Detroit?

The Twins awoke this morning to discover (largely via media members) a video was circulating around the Internet purporting to show Twins catcher Joe Mauer signaling signs, or perhaps pitch locations, to teammate Jason Kubel on Tuesday night, when Mauer was a runner on second base and Kubel was at the plate facing Tigers ace Justin Verlander.
