    Should have made them play with 8 players in the field for the first 81 games.

    One of our division rivals in disarray. Hopefully this will help our team this year.

    Beltran was the first to receive his punishment. He has to manage the Mets.

    Some may consider that cruel and unusual punishment.

    Alex Cora is f'd. Once MLB is done with the Red Sox investigation, Cora is going to get multiple year if not life mlb suspension.

    Good. Well deserved. The Yankees were screaming about this while it was going on and nothing was being done. At least some retribution

    Alex Cora fired.

    And the plot gets even thicker...

    "New Mets manager Carlos Beltrán also was implicated by Manfred in his report Monday, the only player mentioned. Manfred decided that no players would be disciplined for breaking rules prohibiting the use of electronics to steal catcher’s signs".

    "The Mets have not commented on Beltrán’s status."

    From what I heard and read they are not taking any action against the players which Beltran was during his time with the Astros. I also can't believe the Astros are the only team using technology to get a competitive advantage.

    I'm sure many teams use game feeds to look at signals, for later when a runner is on 2nd they can relay those signals to the hitter. Relaying the signals in real time to hitters using a video feed basically to the dugout and beating a trash can, well, that crosses the line in a BIG way.

    But he was still implicated, and the only player specifically named. It doesn't mean the Mets can't discipline him in some way. I mean, it's your new manager and he's been named as a cheater in one of the biggest scandals in baseball history. Doesn't put your team in a very good light obviously.

    Every player in the trash can sound videos technically are implicated unofficially. I, not sure u can really fault them though. If they aren’t led to say it’s not okay, then it is what it is.

    Beltran is a cheater and a choker. Can’t believe the Mets hired him... oh wait it’s the Mets. Sad.

    The difference between Beltram and the other huston players is that he isn't playing and isn't represented by the baseball union,which is a pain in the was to owners ,plus Beltram now makes decisions in the dugout
