I would think they'd have to cut their losses, no?

Agree, it will be a circus if he stays. It will make the Bronx Zoo look like Disney World.

 

But Met management has done strange things over the years and may not want to admit their vetting process was lacking.

I think the bad thing about Alex Cora's role in this is how it tarnishes the otherwise unblemished reputation for integrity and straight-dealing associated with Boston sports franchises.

You should go inside the Green Monster wall and experience what transpires in there. It could qualify as one of the world's wonders - just ask Manny Ramirez.

The most interesting aspect of this is how easy it is to fool the sign stealers. All that's necessary is for the catcher and coaches to change their key indicator every inning and at other crucial points in the game. It takes about five seconds.

 

And let's not forget, the only time this works is when the pitcher is throwing from the stretch position. With no one on base and pitching from the wind-up position, there's no time to transmit the information.

Yes, I am still not over the team with Ramirez and Ortiz throwing at A-Rod’s head and being applauded by the Fenway crowd for doing so, because he’s a Yankee cheat.

At least he's unlikely to be able to steal signals.

Future trivia question:

 

Who was the only Mets manager never to have lost a game? Or win one, for that matter.
