That's not a hammer, that's a meteor.  Holy hell.

I honestly didn't think it was worth this amount of punishment.

Apparently Cora will also be punished for his role while with the Astros.  I'm guessing that he'll get a separate, additional punishment for his role in the Red Sox cheating.

Hmmm. I think it's about right. I also wanted them to strip their international pool too. A lot of people think they should have their World Series vacated. Others wanted more people, including players, punished.

I'm not sure how far I'd have gone, but I don't think this is really too much.

Evidently the CBA won't allow for player punishment in this area of any type.

How is Mike Elias not affected by all of this? He worked for Luhnow and from what I've heard, the entire front office knew about the cheating. Ive not seen Elias mentioned anywhere in the breaking news.. At least explaining why he will not be penalized or not.
