Astros' Luhnow, Hinch suspended for '20 season...

Also, $5M dollar fine, hello!

Alex Cora, next on the chopping block. That's what happens to cheaters!!

BLB



Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch have each been suspended without pay for the 2020 season by Major League Baseball, which on Monday released the findings from its investigation into Houston’s sign-stealing allegations.

Houston also forfeits its first- and second-round picks in the 2020 and 2021 MLB Drafts as part of the penalties. In addition, the Astros were fined $5 million, which is the highest allowable fine under the Major League Constitution.

In addition, former Astros assistant GM Brandon Taubman, who was dismissed by the club in October after he made offensive and insensitive comments directed at a group of female reporters at the conclusion of the American League Championship Series, has been suspended for one year. Taubman, who is currently not employed by a Major League club, will not be able to work in baseball during that time.

The suspensions of Luhnow, Hinch and Taubman are to begin immediately, ending on the day following the completion of the 2020 World Series.

MLB has begun their investigation into the Red Sox today, and Alex Cora likely will be suspended at least one year by the time it concludes.

Worth noting, some rival execs still don't think Astros have been punished enough today.

They got a slap on the wrist.

Jim Crane did more to punish his own team than Manfred did.

Crane is a PR guy. If you make the organization look bad you are out. I would not be surprised if he already had Craig Biggio lined up to take over. The guy is squeaky clean and loved by Astros fans.

I know $5 million is the fine max but Astros should've had to give back the $30,420,155.57 of playoff share money for "winning" the World Series.

I hate losing Luhnow don't really care about Hinch. Hell any of us could fill out the Astros line up card with all that talent.

The only bright side for Boston is they won without Cora and the trash can in '04, '07 & '13. Houston has not.

Baker's 1863 career wins are the second most all-time by a manager without a World Series title

Gene Mauch had 1902 wins

Ken Rosenthal now hearing Baker deal might be one year with an option, not two years as he reported earlier. "Working to get this straight."
