Astros punishment from MLB:
- Jeff Luhnow, president of baseball ops and GM, and manager AJ Hinch suspended one year without pay.
- Fined $5,000,000
- Astros forfeit first and second round selections in the 2020 and 2021 First-Year Player Drafts.
Would you give up $5 million, four draft picks and one year of a GM and manager for a World Series championship?
Yes, you would.
my god if banging on a trash can and winning the world series is really only gonna cost you your GM and manager for a year, the mets should have done this ages ago
So Jim Crane, who faced lawsuits as a business owner for various forms of unethical business practices now has morals and fires the best GM and Manager in baseball? Miss me with that shit. Thats some bullshit.
Astros GM and Manager on their way out of the Astros organization and into new positions in the Patriots front office.#cheaters https://t.co/oiPtTfAao6
for throwing the book at the cheating @astros
. This is a death penalty. According to report, GM and manager suspended for a year, $5 million fine and loss of draft picks. No cover up here like Spygate by @NFL
. Remember, @Patriots
coach Bill Belichick got NO suspension.
The Red Sox are slashing payroll and the Astros just fired their GM and Manager a month before Pitchers and Catchers report. There’s absolutely no reason and I mean NO REASON that the #Yankees aren’t the team representing the American League in the World Series in 2020.
fined; GM and Manager suspended a year each for sign-stealing. I’m probably the last SFGiants fan on earth to defend the Dodgers but they sure look cheated out of a World Series championship. https://t.co/JOfYKd24Rj
@SportsCenter @AdamSchefter @JeffPassan
City of Houston just had the worst 24 hrs in sports history!!
1. Texans gave up a 24 pt lead and loss in the playoffs
2. Astros got caught cheating & fired the GM and manager
3. Bill OBRIEN not only didn’t get fired but will b the GM & set the Fran back 10 yrs!! https://t.co/06HR7LpWB6
Astros owner, by the action of firing GM and manager expressly because of a cheating scandal, acknowledged that his team’s 2017 title is tainted.
I think @MLB
did a terrible job on the #Astros fines...It should have stripped the 2017 World Series. Given lifetime bans to the GM and manager AJ Hinch. Should have been 5 years of Draft Picks 1st and 2nd. The 5 million dollar fine is chump change for an owner make it 25.
#Astros got HAMMERED! Jeff Luhnow, president of baseball ops and GM, and manager AJ Hinch suspended one year without pay.
- Fined $5,000,000
- Astros forfeit first and second round selections in the 2020 and 2021 First-Year Player Drafts @NBCDFWSports https://t.co/YfVZ6GFsmL
I may be wrong here, but the idea behind suspending the GM and Manager for a whole year is likely that the MLB determined "cheating" led to their WS win. Ok. So you vacate the title, right?
Astros' GM and manager have been fired after MLB found the team used technology to cheat during the 2017 postseason, which ended with a World Series win over the Dodgers. https://t.co/6JeMby1WcS
The Astros have fired their GM and Manager AJ Hinch amongst the team’s cheating scandal.
Along with the scandal was Red Sox manager Alex Cora. Cora will most likely bout out as Boston’s manager within the next few days, per multiple sources. https://t.co/d7SlZRWQWj
- get exposed in massive and amateurish cheating scandal involving sign-stealing
- fire GM and manager
- former bench coach caught up in cheating scandal.
That's some sharp shootin' Tex.
On Monday afternoon, the MLB announced that the Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch would be suspended for the 2020 season. Moments later, Astros owner Jim Crane announced that the GM and manager would also be fired. https://t.co/OEBfvVMKnx
KHOU 11 News Houston @KHOU
Do you agree with the Astros owner's decision to fire the GM and manager?
Was it necessary? Too harsh?
Let us know!
When the @astros
won the 2017 World Series, they were cheating -- and virtually all players knew, the MLB determined, finding the club used technology to steal pitching signs.
The team's GM and manager were fired on Monday.
Mark Strassmann reports https://t.co/x1L9m0uH1x
You literally fucking cheated and won the world series while doing it. And all you pay is losing your GM and manager? No players are penalized? Your team as is is still competitive. What's the fucking cost? The picks? WHO THE FUCK CARES YOU JUST WON THE WS
The astros gm and manager sound like Fat Tony and his goons when they blame the whole murder of Principal Skinner on Bart. “We didn’t know what was going on, and we were powerless to stop it!”

Major League Baseball dropped the hammer on the Houston Astros for stealing signs. Suspended the GM and manager 1 year, $5 million fine, and loss of 1st and 2nd round draft picks the next two years.
Slap on the wrist. A GM and Manager will easily follow suit if it means only a year suspension to obtain a Championship. This will encourage more cheating because ther is no true punishment. https://t.co/G786eUrpA9
MLB suspended the Astros GM and Manager for their cheating during 2017 world series .... for one season 😤 i say for the rest of his life
This is a big deal.
The Astros GM and Manager have been fired, following a sign-stealing cheating scandal. 😟 https://t.co/1jcOjFw3Yg
so only a one year suspension for the GM and manager for cheating in the world series? @Marlins
y’all know what to do.
At the very least, he should be banned for a year and canned by the Sox. But something MUST be coming since MLB suspended the Stros GM and manager who were in the dark but did nothing to Cora who is the actual guilty party. The mind boggles.
