The fallout from a sign-stealing scandal that has rocked all of baseball continued Tuesday night when the Red Sox "mutually parted ways" with manager Alex Cora. 

Not long after the MLB concluded an investigation into the Astros stealing pitchers' signs and relaying them to players in real-time, Houston manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow were suspended for a year. The Astros fired both of them following the ruling. 

With Hinch and Cora losing their jobs this week, Davey Martinez is the only World Series manager from the 2010s that is still with the team he won the title with. Bruce Bochy, Tony La Russa, John Ferrell, Ned Yost and Joe Maddon have either retired, been fired or have moved on to greener pastures. 

Cora, who was a bench coach in Houston during the 2017 season, was not only implicated in the Astros' scandal but is also under investigation for his involvement in a second sign-stealing scandal with the Red Sox in their 2018 World Series run. 

The Red Sox are being accused of using their video replay room to steal signs last season. The investigation has not yet been concluded, nor has Cora's punishment been levied, but it appears Boston was not going to wait for either of the results. 

Washington, of course, won their first World Series title against a cheating team and, as of now, have not been accused of any wrongdoing.

So there goes the old adage, folks: cheaters never prosper.
