Correspondent Yoon-Jun Ko = Alex Cora (Boston Red Sox manager), who led the sign-stealing when he was a bench coach for the Houston Astros in the past, is said to be proud of the situation at the time, which is shocking.
‘Boston Herald’ reporter Evan Drelich quoted the contents of his book ‘Victory Fixes Everything’ on the 3rd (Korean time) and introduced an undisclosed story. The book is about to be published soon as a book that tells the secret story of Houston’s autograph stealing scandal in 2017.
According to reports, Cora proudly bragged about ‘sign stealing’ when he came to Boston to take over as manager.
Reporter Drelich, citing testimony from a member of the Boston Red Sox, said, “When Cora started drinking, in particular, he bragged, ‘We stole the World Series!’
He added, “Houston knew the autograph was stolen. When Cora played, ‘I knew what the ball was going to be before the runners got on base. He didn’t even have to put a runner out,’ he said, and others thought, ‘What the hell does that mean? This was before the disciplinary action was handed down, and it was still before the scandal erupted.
Houston was said to have stolen autographs and delivered them by knocking on garbage cans. Since then, a mysterious machine has been found inside Jose Altuve’s uniform, and it has received a lot of criticism. 안전놀이터
In the end, Cora, along with manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow, were suspended for one year. However, a year later he returned to Boston as head coach, a position he has held to this day.
The book even details the relationship between Cora and director Hinch. Manager Hinch tried to fire Cora because of her immaturity, but she was retained because of the support of Alex Bregman and Carlos Beltran.
