Ich eröffne den neuen MLB-Thread mal mit einer News, die mich ehrlich gesagt ziemlich überrascht hat. Alex Cora kommt als Manager der Red Sox zurück, nachdem er dort erst vor rund 10 Monaten entlassen worden ist.
Cora returns to the team after being fired in January following a Major League Baseball investigation that implicated him in the Houston Astros' sign-stealing scheme in 2017. Cora was a bench coach in Houston before joining the Red Sox as manager in 2018. MLB suspended him for the 2020 season over the sign-stealing scandal. "Not being a part of the game of baseball, and the pain of bringing negative attention to my family and this organization was extremely difficult," Cora said. "I am sorry for the harm my past actions have caused and will work hard to make this organization and its fans proud." Cora, 45, led the Red Sox to a World Series title in 2018, and a 192-132 record in two seasons in his first stint as manager.
Hat das einer von euch kommen gesehen?
