The Boston Red Sox have brought back manager Alex Cora this season after parting ways with him for his role in the Houston Astros sign-stealing cheating scandal during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Many people in baseball will never forget the Astros sign stealing scandal where they reportedly used buzzers, trash cans, and other devices to gain an advantage over opponents.
Today, Alex Cora in a press conference held up a buzzer device that the Red Sox will use this spring training. The purpose of it is it will buzz if anyone gets too close to one another. Of course, Twitter had to have some fun with it:
Cora, 45, held the Red Sox job for two seasons before he was dismissed in January in response to his role in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal. It should be noted that the Red Sox were later investigated and punished for their own technological misconduct. The Red Sox replaced Cora with Roenicke, who had previously served as Cora's bench coach. Cora was later suspended through the postseason.
