    Default Astros GM & Manager Suspended for Full Season

    https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/...-sign-stealing

    Additionally, MLB will fine the Astros $5 million and take away their first- and second-round draft picks in the 2020 and 2021 drafts.

    MLB said in its statement that if Luhnow or Hinch "engage in any future material violations" of MLB rules, they will be placed on the league's permanently ineligible list.

    No players were disciplined by MLB in the investigation. While Mets manager Carlos Beltran was part of the investigation, he was a player at the time and thus was not suspended.

    Discipline for Red Sox manager Alex Cora is coming and is going to be harsh, sources told ESPN. Cora was the Astros' bench coach during the 2017 season.

    That's some kind of punishment. Got to say, wasn't expecting them to come down so hard. Will be interesting to see what happens to Cora.

    Man, visions of the SMU football Death Penalty back in the day.


    Hinch is a helluva manager. Really too bad, but they have to stop this crap.


    Edit: So Hinch protested twice yet the players continued & Hinch loses his livelihood. I think a player or two need to "man-up."

    Both Hinch and Luhnow have been pink-slipped by Astros owner Jim Crane. I have a feeling that Cora is next.

    Cora and the Red Sox have "agreed to part ways."

    Carlos Beltran from the Mets has resigned. This thing just keeps getting better and better.

    They also should have banned them from post-season play for a couple of years!
