LOL Good question! I was hoping somebody knew. My comprehension from the enclosed wiki report is kind of like a back-up coach/ baby-sitter? :D

Coaching
On November 15, 2016, Cora became the bench coach for the Houston Astros.[18] Cora assumed managerial duties on three occasions during the 2017 season, following ejections of Astros manager A.J. Hinch.[19][20][21][22]

On August 25, 2017, Cora was ejected from a game against the Los Angeles Angels by home plate umpire Laz Díaz.[23] Cora argued that the baseball had too much dirt on it and should be removed from play; this was Cora's first career MLB ejection.[24]

xx * Good info...I seem to recall that stat. This season I believe we split our series? Verlander is so cool! Very happy for him and Kate. I remember last year's WS was very exciting! NT

xx * Had to come back here and correct my understanding of David Price's contract with Red Sox: Dude got a 7 year $217M (that's right Million) contract that pays $31M a year, NOT a 3 year $31M contract
