    Default Alex Cora, Red Sox part ways in wake of investigations

    Alex Cora, who won the World Series in 2018 in his debut season as manager of the Boston Red Sox but has been linked this offseason to two sign-stealing schemes, has mutually agreed to part ways with the team.

    Cora, 44, led the Red Sox past the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games in 2018, a year removed from winning the World Series in Houston as Astros bench coach.

    He is awaiting discipline from MLB for his role in a sign-stealing scheme by the Astros, and is still under investigation for a different sign-stealing scheme that is said to have occurred with the Red Sox in 2018.

    Alex Cora issues a statement and doesn't apologize to the fans of the Boston Red Sox.

    He will go down in history as the sleaziest manager in Red Sox history.

    As soon as news broke of this a couple days ago I am on record stating Alex Cora should be fired.

    I don't care for Cora for several reasons. Both baseball related and non-baseball related.

    ...then you should go on record that Bellichick should be fired too.

    I only think people should be fired for real scandals, not manufactured.

    You do realize the refs tested four of the Colts footballs at halftime and three of them measured less than 12.5 psi, don't you?

    You probably don't remember that fact.

    And when they realized the testing wasn't going their way they stopped testing more due to "time restraints."

    Please stop. They were fined and forfeited Draft picks. Guilty. Give it up.

    In other words, you never knew 3 out of 4 Colts balls were under 12.5 psi.

    Thanks, I figured that.

    I didnt comment on that because its not worth it.

    You are apparently not aware thats over the League mandated psi which is 11. You didn't know that, but now you do! Youre welcome.

    The league rule is between 12.5 to 13.5 psi. Where did you get your fake news from?

    Youre right. It is 12.5.

    Doesnt matter though. Your team was caught and charged for cheating. Period. Tahts all there is to it. Fight the truth all You want. I dont give a shit whether you believe it or not.

    Loss of Draft picks. Fined. Suspension. Guilty. Period.

    Cheating has apprently taken over Boston sports teams and welcomed by their idiot fans.
