Alex Cora Newsbeat

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Alex Cora: ‘Vibe is different’ with Boston Red Sox. ‘You come to the ballpark every day now and it feels like last year’ - masslive.com

“The vibe is different,” Cora said at Target Field before the Red Sox-Twins game Tuesday. “I can tell you that right now. There’s not much searching. And you feel it. You come to the ballpark every day now and it feels like last year. We’re finding ways to beat teams.”

Alex Cora, Andrew Benintendi ejected: ‘I’ve got to go out and defend my player,’ Cora says - masslive.com

Of course, Benintendi isn’t wrong.

Andrew Benintendi’s simple message for home-plate umpire Angel Hernandez led to Benintendi getting ejected for the first time in his career.

“I grounded out and was frustrated and all I said was, ‘You suck,’” Benintendi said.

Benintendi, who disagreed with a called strike earlier in his fifth-inning at-bat against Rangers starter Ariel Jurado, yelled as he walked toward the dugout. First-base umpire Vic Carapazza immediately threw him out.

MLB Rumors: Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor on Red Sox’s long-term radar?

Alex Cora already brought the Red Sox a World Series title. Could he bring two marquee players to Boston next?

During an appearance Saturday on “MLB on FOX,” The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal suggested Cora’s presence in Boston may give the Red Sox the “inside track” on the Houston Astros’ Carlos Correa and the Cleveland Indians’ Francisco Lindor when both shortstops become free agents after the 2021 season.

“The Sox, in theory, could have the inside track on both players,” Rosenthal says. “Their manager, Alex Cora, is from Puerto Rico, as are both players, and he was their GM in the 2017 World Baseball Classic.”

Mind you, those who remember the Hanley Ramirez/Pablo Sandoval debacle see ways this could backfire severely….
