    Alex Cora Lifetime ban?

    There is talk is Major League baseball that Alex Cora could be given a lifetime ban from baseball. Wodd from the commissioner's office is the penalty coming down is harsher than the year suspension.

    the mastermind behind the astros and then doing a new way with the red sox and winning two world series championships. i could see it. i was thinking maybe 2 years and the red sox get the fine and draft picks but would not be surprised at lifetime ban.

    If he doesnít get the ďPete Rose banĒ, then Iím guessing it will be 5-years.

    He's career is over, surely no teams will want him even if no lifetime ban, worth it since no title strip

    Been over 30 years since Rose got lifetime ban. Time to let him back in at least on a limited basis. He should be eligible for Hall enshrinement. 30 years is enough punishment.

    Doubt Cora gets lifetime ban. But itís going to be damn tough for him to find a job no matter what the punishment.

    good question as it seems he was apart of the group that came up with the idea.

    Beltran is the only player on the 2017 Astros mentioned in the report, and his name is cited just once. The report plainly states, “Approximately two months into the 2017 season, a group of players, including Carlos Beltran, discussed that the team could improve on decoding opposing teams’ signs and communicating the signs to the batter.”

    Lifetime is overkill. Something like 2-3 years and all mlb managers get the idea to not eff with this any longer.

    Red Sox should just fire Cora now. Get ahead of his coming ban/suspension and rid themselves of his cheating ass.

    Cheaters gonna cheat.. Disgraceful.. Play the game the right way!!

    Much easier to hit a ball when you know what pitch is coming your way before it comes with every pitch.

    Especially if you are facing a reliever that only has 1-2 quality pitches to begin with. I am ok with runners on second trying to relay location, signs, etc to their teammate, players police themselves on that. But this was totally different. Taking away the game from the pitcher with your cameras, monitors and garbage can drums before he even threw a single pitch.

    Changed games from the first inning on. It is how they staked Cole to a 4-run lead in game 5 of the Alds. Glasnow was not tipping his pitches that night, which is what everyone thought.

    If Cora is fired now, will he still have to serve the suspensions if he ever gets a job in baseball? Who would hire him if he is looking at A 1-3 year suspension or more?

    Gammons:

    Sign Stealing, old fashioned style:when Roger Clemens thought Willie Wilson was feeding signs from second base, they had a yelling match. When Wilson came up to hit, Roger drilled him in the back. End of sign-stealing.
