After a year-long suspension, the Red Sox announced Friday morning that Alex Cora will return to manage the team for the 2021 season.
Reaction on Twitter covered a wide range of emotions. Yankees fans in particular expressed their faux-outrage (if you want to talk about cheating, please look no further than Alex Rodriguez) while Red Sox fans were somewhat divided in their feelings.
Here's a quick cross-section of the reaction on Twitter.
Let me rewrite the tweet so I stop getting judged about the election 😂 It was about the Red Sox. Alex Cora is back, but that doesn’t magically fix their roster issues. Now Bloom must build a competitive team to make Cora look like the savior.
This will be the narrative.... It was Bloom’s call. But who cares. It’s not like Henry was forcing Bobby V on the guy. He won a WS and is a very good Manager. Bloom has plenty of time to put his finder print on this roster. https://t.co/pK6M7ToMDP
"Red Sox players openly pined for (Alex Cora's) return, the front office always worked well with him, and the fan base — with some notable, disappointed exceptions — still gave him credit for winning the 2018 World Series."
While Hubbs cries about cheating, please nobody remind him that the only Yankee team that won a championship in the last 20 years had multiple players on it that served PED suspensions and the teams that won titles before that accounted for one third of the Mitchell Report.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
