This is the only way I'd be OK with moving on from Beltran is if I 100% knew Hinch was coming next year. Although that would be awfully tough to justify after you fire Beltran
Because obviously it was only the GM and manager that knew, every other coach and front office member was completely clean and uninvolved.this goes to my next point about replacement managers. How are people so seemingly ok with letting the bench coaches, who were there for all this, just take over?
Lunhow goes into big business and does just fine. Hinch is back in a dugout by 2022 unless he just really enjoys studio life.Because obviously it was only the GM and manager that knew, every other coach and front office member was completely clean and uninvolved.
People just like to see punishment, even if it's all for show. Hinch, Lunhow, Cora, Beltran were easy targets because people know them. I guess MLB's hope is the association with being there when it happened hurts their job chances, but I'm just not sure teams will care. I expect Hinch and Cora to be managing when their suspensions are up, Lunhow is probably done but just because people genuinely don't like him
Exactly. After being excited about the upcoming season, they’ll end up with Terry Collins back on the bench and an 83 win season. Probably some sort of career ending injury to Alonso in the first week of the season too.I don’t know enough to care, but if he lied it’s going to come back to bite him. And if there’s one thing I know as a Mets fan it is that the Mets will suffer someway as a result, even though they had no involvement.
The Red Sox won the AL East 3 years in a row starting in 2016. John Farrell was the manager in 2016 and 2017.The Astros have been at the top of the technological push in baseball using very advanced cameras and training with their players in the off season. Other teams saw their success and have tried to emulate them but the video transmission went too far. Cora engineered the whole thing. It’s not conceivable that he did not bring some of that to the Red Sox as they went from where they were to a title. My guess is that a shoe will drop, and their last trophy will have a permanent stain on it. If it affected them getting the AL East in any way that would do it.
The Red Sox rank 3rd in the majors for "homegrown talent" based on this detailed analysis.they spent the money to make it happen. What they did couldn’t happen now. The pool system has changed the game.
