Alex Cora's Position As Red Sox Manager May Be In Jeopardy

Exclusive MLB hands down unprecedented penalties for Astros after sign-stealing investigation

It's expected that the Boston Red Sox will also face severe punishment for their alleged use of cameras to steal signs during their 2018 championship season.

"We're looking for an attorney", said a Dodgers fan on Tuesday, citing losses that include money paid for parking, Dodger dogs and beer. He suspended general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch for the 2020 season, stripped the team of two first-round and two second-round draft picks, and levied a $5 million fine - the highest allowed. Major League Baseball said that if Hinch or Luhnow "engage in any future material violations" they face a permanent ban. "I will withhold determining the appropriate level of discipline for Cora until after the DOI completes its investigation of the allegations that the Red Sox engaged in impermissible electronic sign stealing in 2018 while Cora was the manager".

Astros employees in the team's video replay room started to decode signs using the center field camera at the start of the 2017 season. If a team can interpret what those signs mean, it can give them an advantage when their batter is at the plate. It should be pointed out the Astros did not have to vacate their 2017 World Series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers nor were any players punished in any form.

"... Cora was involved in developing both the banging scheme and utilizing the replay review room to decode and transmit signs".

Stealing signs is not explicitly against MLB's official rules, but where the Astros crossed the line over is their use of technology (a camera/monitor system) to gain information. Manfred said no Astros players will be disciplined because he decided in September 2017 to hold a team's manager and GM responsible.

The Red Sox are accused of having players slip into that room to analyze catchers' signs to help decipher them.

Remember that second scheme about the replay room from earlier? Bauer pointed out that some players saw their spin rates jump dramatically when they joined certain pitching staffs that "encouraged" such practices.

Cora said in May 2019 that the then-Toronto Blue Jays pitcher "competes a certain way and people don't like it".

Taubman can apply to Manfred for reinstatement after the World Series, and any future violations of Major League Rules would lead to a lifetime ban.
