MLB Shakeup

“In the long run Major League Baseball did the right thing by inserting itself and trying to clear up this advanced analytics, technology hurricane that has overtaken Major League Baseball in the last ten years. In the scheme of things that we talk about normally here each and every day this is not a huge story, but in its essence it’s a sad story….Alex Cora is a terrific guy, he owned up to it, he basically resigned and now we have to watch out for Carlos Beltran with the New York Mets because he was in on it as well. So, we’ll see what happens there,” says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle during a conversation with Joe Scarborough, Jonathan Lemire and Willie Geist about Cora, who parted ways with the Red Sox this week after having been linked to two sign-stealing schemes when he was the Houston Astros’ bench coach in 2017, and Beltran, the new manager for the New York Mets, whose named also appeared in the MLB’s report on the Astros’ cheating scandal.
