An MLB investigation found earlier this month that Astros players used video technology to steal signs from opposing teams and would bang a bat against a trash can near their dugout to relay the signals to their batters.
The L.A. City Council is set to vote on its resolution at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
The Boston Red Sox fired Alex Cora for his part in the cheating scandal that now has the 2018 team under investigation and the New York Mets ousted its manager Carlos Beltran, making the former Astros outfielder the third manager to be out of a job since Major League Baseball released its report Monday detailing how the Astros used in-house cameras to steal opposing teams' signs and relay them to Astros batters.
"This isn't being done for publicity", Koretz said.
Manager A.J. Hinch and General Manager Jeff Luhnow were both suspended for one year without pay and were subsequently let go by the Astros. "This is outrage at how our team was cheated". Later, Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who was an Astros trainer in 2017, was sacked and was cited in the Major League Baseball report for his role in the Astros sign-theft program.
The resolution comes in the wake of a massive cheating scandal, which has soured the titles of two of the last three World Series champions. "We have to send a message".
Cedillo said that neither he nor Koretz had spoken to the Dodgers about the resolution. "We don't want this to become to the new normal".
But, Manfred announced he was NOT stripping either the Astros or the Red Sox of their titles. and now, L.A. politicians are demanding he changes that ASAP. "What we're looking at is what the record will reflect, and clearly cheaters should not be rewarded".
