    Cora gone from the Red Sox. Technically not fired "mutually agreed to part ways" So allowed the resign.

    The Boston Red Sox and manager Alex Cora have mutually agreed to part ways after a report from MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred into Cora’s role with the Houston Astros’ sign stealing scandal.

    Cora's out now too. MLB punishment still to come.

    The Red Sox have fired Alex Cora.

    I know it's a "mutual agreement" but I'd say it's a "fired"

    Pretty much. Mutual agreement usually means either you leave on your own or we're pushing you out. Either way, he was done.

    Such a sad state of a sport though. Im sure this means most teams are doing it. Hopefully the Yankees are next and they strip them of some players so Toronto has a shot.

    Add another victim to the proverbial chopping block. Carlos Beltran is out as Manager of the Mets before he's even managed a game.

    https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/...s-manager.html

    Carlos Beltran’s time as manager of the Mets will apparently come to a close before he even suits up for a game. Yahoo’s Tim Brown reports (via Twitter) that Beltran has informed the Mets he feels it is best if he steps down.

    Beltran was named in commissioner Rob Manfred’s report on the findings of his investigation into the Astros’ sign-stealing scheme earlier this week. While Beltran was a player at the time and wasn’t expected to be disciplined by the league as a result, reports over the past 24 hours have indicated that the Mets have been mulling his future in light of his connection to the scandal.

    Whether the decision truly rested with Beltran or whether the wording of the reports (and, presumably, the forthcoming announcement) was structured in a way to allow Beltran to save face to some extent isn’t known at this time. Regardless, his ousting as manager now means that every person listed in Manfred’s Astros report — Astros GM Jeff Luhnow, Astros manager A.J. Hinch, Red Sox manager Alex Cora (formerly Houston’s bench coach) and Beltran — have now lost their jobs in the wake of a scandal that has increasingly shaken Major League Baseball as a whole.

    Should have made him manage the Mets for free. That's the real punishment.

    Just another baseball scandal. I wonder how many other teams are doing this and just haven't got caught yet. I know the Jays were accused of stealing signs a couple seasons ago but no proof ever came out of it.

    The fact it was known by players for years just shows how much the league lets teams get away with things until the public knows and it hurts their image.

    Well when you have people like this Jessica Mendoza in the sport....I don't know what to say.

    https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/j...er-mike-fiers/

    Golic: "You have a problem with Mike Fiers leaving the Asrtros, going to another team, and then going public with all of this?"

    Mendoza: "Going public, yeah. I get it if you're with the Oakland A's and you're on another team I mean heck yeah, you better be telling your teammates look, hey, heads up if you hear some noises when you're pitching, this is what's going on for sure. But to go public, yeah, it didn't set well with me. Honestly it made me sad for the sport that that's how this all got found out. This wasn't something that MLB naturally investigated or that even other teams complained about because they naturally heard about it and then investigations happened. It came from within, it was a player that was a part of it, that benefitted from it during the regular season when he was a part of that team. That, when I first heard about it, it hits you like any teammate would right it's something that you don't do. I totally get telling your future teammates, helping them win, letting people know. But to go public with it and call them out and start all of this, it's hard to swallow."
