Red Sox Part Ways With Alex Cora After Cheating Scandal

Red Sox Part Ways With Alex Cora After Cheating Scandal”

With a major suspension likely looming, the Boston Red Sox made a decision to officially parted ways with manager Alex Cora on Tuesday night, as first alluded to by 98.5 The Sports Hub, ending Cora's managerial tenure after just two seasons.

Cora was a bench coach that season before taking a managerial role with the Red Sox in 2018.

New York Mets manager Carlos Beltran avoided punishment in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal Monday as A.J.

The Red Sox organization could face punishment as well.

It was the Red Sox's only way out, and they took it.

'Given the findings and the commissioner´s ruling, we collectively decided that it would not be possible for Alex to effectively lead the club going forward and we mutually agreed to part ways, ' the team said in a statement attributed to owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner, CEO Sam Kennedy and Cora.

MLB's findings regarding the Astros included: "Cora arranged for a video room technician to install a monitor displaying the center field camera feed immediately outside of the Astros' dugout".

Cora, who worked as an ESPN analyst before leaving for the Astros, played 14 Major League Baseball seasons, including parts of four seasons with the Red Sox, winning the 2007 World Series with Boston.

Sign-stealing is a legal and time-honored part of baseball as long as it is done with the naked eye - say, by a baserunner standing on second. Manfred decided that no players would be disciplined for breaking rules prohibiting the use of electronics to steal catcher's signs. There was no sign-stealing system on the road. "Cora participated in both schemes, and through his active participation, implicitly condoned the players' conduct". So here's a collection of the best social-media reactions from the world of baseball and beyond.

Cora guided the team to a franchise-record 108 regular-season victories in 2018 and its fourth World Series title in 15 years. "It is hard because virtually all of the Astros' players had some involvement or knowledge of the scheme, and I am not in a position based on the investigative record to determine with any degree of certainty every player who should be held accountable, or their relative degree of culpability".

Dombrowski was sacked in September after the Red Sox stumbled toward an 84-78 record and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2015.
