    Per ESPN News the Field and General Managers of the Astros are suspended for a year. Sock it to 'em. Betcha Cora is shaking in his boots over his fate. LMAO over this one

    Cora and the Sox should get a worse punishment. They were warned in 2017 about cheating and then continued to do so. I also laugh at the $5M “fine” that the Astros were given. Add a zero or two to that fine to deter other franchises from cheating MLB. A $5M fine is barley a slap on the wrist.

    Here's an update, Astros Ownership has fired their Field and General Managers. Articles now pending predict that Cora will get his as well.

    It shows you how bad this really was. Makes the Patriots past situation seem minor. It's absurd to have engaged in such blatant behavior.

    5 Million is peanuts to these 2 teams and most others.
    When MLB:
    • denies TV revenue for future games, say a year or so;
    and/or-
    • calls forfeiture of Awards/Trophies as well as-
    • disallowing these teams a postseason birth;
    Then and only then will penalties be taken seriously...

    Anything less than permanent dismissal from MLB, will a slap on the hands.

    ^^^^^Imagine penalizing the Yankees 5 million! What a f’king joke! Let’s see what Baseball hierarchy
    does to their beloved Red Sox.......Alex Cora should be unemployed.....soon. Can Manfred & company
    act on that?

    You know what’s funny......Yankees tried to cheat but failed miserably under BaBoone.
    You can’t make this shit up. LOL

    Love the way they do business in baseball. IF ALL ELSE FAILS_____CHEAT!

    Like I said in the other thread, the PLAYERS need to be held accountable too.

    I'm glad MLB carries a consciousness.

    I thought about you during the Ravens’ debacle. Really thought they were SB bound. Maybe next year.

    Note to those fired thus far, it aint what you do its what you get caught doing. Your atta boys were canceled by a huge ah shit. Don't fee me that crap about how honored you were for your positions your actions reflected none at all. The more they catch and burn those Involved the better it will be for the game. All this in the 100th anniversary of the Black Sox Scandal. I wonder what the newest Yankee former Astro has to say about this situation.

    The Mets' newly hired skipper Carlos Beltran also has a problem...before he was hired, he claimed during his interview with the Mets that he knew nothin of the cheating scandal in 2017 as a player...but the report says otherwise.
