Cora, who was the Astros' Bench Coach at the time, was mentioned eleven times in MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred's report on the Astros' sign stealing, with Manfred writing that Cora was "an active participant in the scheme" who, "through his active participation, implicitly condoned the players’ conduct."
On top of all of this, Cora is also implicated in allegations that the Red Sox used video equipment to steal opponents' signs during their franchise-best 108-win regular season in 2018.
