Shoppach denies sending text from Gonzalez's phone

A New York Daily News report had Kelly Shoppach behind the infamous text message sent to Red Sox owners (using Adrian Gonzalez's phone) requesting a team meeting back when the team was in New York in late July.

Well, Shoppach was asked about that report on Sunday, and he denied having anything to do with it. In fact, he says he didn't even attend the meeting.

So, who do we believe? Would Shoppach go out of his way to deny the report, not even being with the team anymore? Or did someone within the Sox organization lie to the NYDN and make Shoppach the scapegoat in order to make the rest of the team look better?

Check out Shoppach's denial in the video above.
