I mean anything is possible. But this just seems like an attempt to get the spotlight of Boston (I mean, it's on Houston, but the spotlight is coming to Boston next).Any chance Beltran had a hand in helping the Yankees come up with something for sign stealing in 2019?
He was hired in Dec 2018 as a "special advisor" to Cashman and the following season the yankees get huge contributions from guys you wouldn't expect. I mean think about all the guys they hit on, it's amazing.
Something to think about.
The Yankees hired Beltran because he is a good baseball guy and has been a very popular clubhouse guy, just like Cora is. They didn't hire him because he knows how to cheat, just like Boston didn't hire Cora because he was the chief cheater in Houston.
Beltran wasn't really in a position to implement anything, he wasn't a day-to-day coach or manager. If he even suggested something illegal, the Yankees could just have said no.
