Carlos Correa On Alex Cora’s Emotions With Daughter: ‘I Know What They’ve Been Through’

In an interesting moment before Friday night's Game 1, it was notable when Carlos Correa was asked what was going through his mind when watching Alex Cora get emotional while hugging his daughter following the Red Sox' ALDS-clinching win over the Rays.

Carlos Correa On Alex Cora’s Emotions With Daughter: ‘I Know What They’ve Been Through’

BOSTON (CBS) — Alex Cora was certainly guilty of participating in a sign-stealing scheme executed by the 2017 Houston Astros en route to their World Series championship. Then the bench coach of the Astros, Cora has admitted as much numerous times since MLB handed out punishment last April.

Yet, the punishment was certainly distributed disproportionately. Despite MLB determining the operation was “player-driven and player-executed,” there were no players punished. Only Cora, then-manager A.J. Hinch, and then-GM Jeff Luhnow, were suspended after the investigation. The only player to suffer any consequences was Carlos Beltran, who had been named the Mets’ manager but ended up losing that opportunity.

The players on that team — Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, George Springer, Yuli Gurriel, and others — suffered no consequences for their actions, and didn’t even have to hear much jeering in the mostly empty-ballpark season of 2020.

So, in an interesting moment before Friday night’s Game 1, it was notable when Fox’s Ken Rosenthal asked Correa what was going through his mind when watching Cora get emotional while hugging his daughter following the Red Sox’ ALDS-clinching win over the Rays.

“It was a very emotional moment,” Correa said of his former bench coach in Houston and former manger in the World Baseball Classic. “I know what they’ve been through — obviously we’ve lived it, and I know what his daughter has been through. So for him to hug his daughter and embrace her and then have that special moment where he’s back in Major League Baseball and she’s back with him winning playoff series, it’s very special for that man. And I’m very happy for him and for his daughter, and you know what he’s done this year with with the Boston Red Sox.”

Correa played in 58 of the Astros’ 60 games last season, before playing in all 13 playoff games last fall, before playing in 148 games in 2021 and five playoff games (and counting) thus far in the postseason. He lost none of his salary during that time, of course.

REMINDER: Rob Manfred’s Ruling On Astros’ Cheating Scheme Had One Insane Conclusion

So while he and his teammates certainly heard some mean heckles in places like New York and Los Angeles, they didn’t quite live the same experience of Cora, who was banished from the sport for a full season.

Nevertheless, it’s clear that despite Cora largely serving as a scapegoat for the “player-driven and player-executed” sign-stealing scheme, Correa still feels fondly about his former coach and fellow Puerto Rican.

Philadelphia Judge Hears Arguments In Mysterious Fatal Stabbing Case of Ellen Greenberg

Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Glynnis Hill heard more than two hours of testimony over Greenberg's mysterious death.

Philadelphia Judge Hears Arguments In Mysterious Fatal Stabbing Case of Ellen Greenberg

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Philadelphia judge heard arguments Friday from a family who says their daughter, Ellen Greenberg‘s death, ruled a suicide, was actually a homicide.

Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Glynnis Hill heard more than two hours of testimony from inside the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia on Friday over Greenberg’s mysterious death.

“This was not a suicide. This was a vicious homicide,” Josh Greenberg said.

Greenberg’s parents say she had her life cut short at just 27 years old after she was found dead in her Manayunk apartment with more than 20 stab wounds to her body. It happened in 2011. Her death was ruled a suicide. But over the past decade, the Greenberg family and their attorney uncovered what they describe as a mountain of evidence that shows Ellen could not have been alive to stab herself 20 times.

The evidence includes a never-before-publicly-seen deposition of then-assistant Philadelphia medical examiner Marlon Osbourne. The Greenbergs say he is the man who ruled Ellen’s death a suicide.

The Greenberg’s family attorney questioned Osbourne off-screen in the deposition.

“If it could be proven that one or more of the wounds that Ellen sustained could not have been inflicted by her, would you agree with me that the manner of death of suicide would be improper or incorrect?” Joe Podraza asked.

Osbourne waited several seconds before he answered.

“I would have to agree,” he said.

The Philadelphia solicitor in the case argued Friday suicide should remain the manner of death.

The judge says he will make a decision sometime soon.
