It’s not unusual for healthy skepticism to emerge whenever pretty much anything happens in sports.
Such was the case Nov. 6, 2017, when the Boston Red Sox hired Alex Cora as their manager.
Cora, who had no experience as a big league skipper, had just finished his first season as the Houston Astros’ bench coach. As a result, many pundits used their platform to question the decision. Of course, that now seems silly given he pushed all the right buttons en route to a World Series title in 2018.
In celebration of the one-year anniversary of the hiring, the Twitter account @TodayInSports3 found two examples of doubters getting proved wrong.
To be fair, the two examples used certainly aren’t total anomalies. Still, takes that were proven way off always are good for a chuckle or two.
