The Astros quickly fired general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch after the two of them were suspended by the MLB for a year, following an investigation into claims that the team was stealing signs using cameras.
Luhnow released a statement after his firing that placed the blame for the cheating on then bench coach Alex Cora and the Astros players. It’s clear from everyone involved that Cora played a major role in this and can expect a big time punishment as a result.
