If the NFL followed those rules, Bill Belichick would have been out of a job a decade ago.

I read the nine-page report on mlb.com. He knew the rules and, at a minimum, he had a pretty good idea what was going on. He didn't even try to stop it. --Bob

Making Billy Joel cringe (stolen from another site):


A.J. Hinch, crossed the line, Luhnow gone, heavy fine

Draft picks lost, rings are not, owner sad for getting caught

Crane denied part in team's making up the clanging scheme

Taubman censured in the text, Cora, Beltran might be next

We didn't blame Mike Fiers

Can was always banging, since the curveball’s hanging

We didn’t blame Mike Fiers

No, we didn’t hush it, but our barrels crushed it!

We didn’t blame Mike Fiers...

Only because there's no Yankee references (And no, Beltran doesn't count)....

So here's a question. Do you think they'll change the rules since pretty much everyone avails themselves...
Oh please.

Alex Cora out as Red Sox manager following sign-stealing scandals
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, one year after he won the World Series as the 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.

I believe this now makes Dave Martinez the only remaining manager who has won a championship with his current team.

Also, SEVEN of the ten World Series champions of the 2010's lost the manager who guided those teams in this crazy offseason (Bochy 2010, 2012, 2014), Yost (2015), Maddon (2016), Hinch (2017) and Cora (2018)...

It's unsure how Carlos Beltran will fare in all this.

One would think having to manage the Mets this year is punishment enough.
