On Wednesday, Red Sox executives would not comment on MLB's investigation into the 2018 Red Sox involving sign stealing and urged fans to “reserve judgment.”
But, when pressed if they think they won the 2018 fair and square, it was an easy answer.
“Absolutely,” president and CEO Sam Kennedy said, which was echoed by owner John Henry.
Kennedy said later on that he believes they won all 108 games fairly.
On Tuesday night, the Red Sox mutually parted ways with manager Alex Cora after he was heavily involved in the 2017 Astros sign-stealing scheme, which MLB released a full report on Monday.
Houston manager A.J. Hinch and GM Jeff Luhnow were suspended a year and then fired. Cora was the bench coach that year, and MLB said in the report they would wait to discipline him until the 2018 investigation into the Red Sox was completed.
That investigation is likely to be done by the time the spring training rolls around, but now the Red Sox are left with finding a new manager.
