As part of the punishment, Manfred announced 1-year suspensions for both Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow.as well as a fine of $5 MILLION AND the loss of draft picks. "Neither one of those guys implemented this or pushed it through the system.but neither one of them did anything about it". "But neither one did anything about it. That's unfortunate and the consequences are severe".

The league opened an investigation in October after former Astros players told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic that sign-stealing was common during the team's 2017 world championship team. Astros owner Jim Crane later fired both Luhnow and Hinch, saying "We will not have this happen again on my watch". The league also is investigating whether the Astros might have engaged in similar behavior over the 2018 and 2019 seasons. MLB's investigation found that Crane was unaware of the sign-stealing activities by his team.

Not only are Jeff Luhnow and A.J. Hinch suspended for the upcoming Major League Baseball season as part of their punishment for the Houston Astros' cheating scandal, but the two have also lost their jobs.

According to Jeff Passan of ESPN, the Astros general manager, Jeff Luhnow and manager, AJ Hinch, will be suspended for the entirety of next season.

"While it is impossible to determine whether the conduct actually impacted the results on the field, the perception of some that it did causes significant harm to the game", Manfred said.

Thunder get a series of lessons from the short-handed Lakers
The Thunder got as close as 11 points with 2:37 to go before a short jumper and a 3-pointer by Kuzma ended the rally. James played on Friday night and had 35 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists in a win over the Dallas Mavericks .

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred determined that Beltran and a group of unnamed players devised a plan to "improve on decoding opposing teams' signs and communicating the signs to the batter".

Takeaway: After Cora left the team to take over as Red Sox manager, the use of the replay room dissipated.

The timing of the firings is another sign of how misplaced the ethics are within the Astros' organization. "It is impractical given the large number of players involved, and the fact that many of those players now play for other clubs".

Players and pundits around baseball, reacted to the news with a mix of outrage and smug satisfaction at Houston's self-inflicted misfortune.
