Following the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series last month, Alex Cora was celebrated with a compliment for the work he did with the club in his wartime as a leader of the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Dave Roberts was getting up for some of the managerial decisions that could have costed the Dodgers lost to Boston in a Five-Game World Series. The second year in which the Dodgers had lost the Series of the World and Roberts came under fire.

Roberts and Cora shared one thing in common: they were two of the lowest wage managers in the Big League, according to a report late in the last season USA Today: Roberts at $ 1 million per season and Chora at $ 800,000.

And that, close to the end of his last press conference after winning the Series of the World, I asked Cora definitely if he was going to try to get up. He was not a champion, taking into account the historic nature of the 119-year-old Boston club season, 108 of them during the regular season when the Red Sox ran away with the East America League over the New York Yankees who won 100.

Cora, who I had known since being a child, gave me an empty answer and did not offer a reply.

It was a valid question. On Monday, the Red Sox gave that answer. They succeed in the Cora contract, giving it an increase and extended to a guaranteed three-year deal with a club option for 2022.

"Alex is always impressed by us," said Red Sox chairman, Tom Werner statement. "It led to its knowledge of the game, the ability to connect to players, and its incredible complications and a decision for us to the season of a historic championship. We know that we are in good hands, and we could not be more proud of know he will be with us in the near future. "

Meanwhile, the Dodgers took the full 10 days to practice the $ 1.1 million Roberts option for 2019 and are in discussions for an unexpected contract extension.

"The reason that we have slowed down is that we have had many training staff decisions to do and interview," said president of the club's football operations, Andrew Friedman, last week when he revealed that the Dodgers had raised Roberts Option.& nbsp;"I think it's talking more to the optimism that something will definitely do and allow us to focus on what we need to do in the near season."

The parallel tracks tell you everything you need to know about both organizations.

The Red Sox gives Cora the necessary information and analyzes and enables it to control. Baseball operations chief Dave Dombrowski and company also payroll Cora's top player in baseball.

At $ 237.8 includes benefits and payroll, the Red Sox completed $ 40.8 million over the $ 197 million competitive tax balance threshold. At that rate, Red Sox will not only have to pay 50% tax tax, but an additional 45% on the amount spent over the threshold with a relative loss in the June amateur draft. But that's the price of just holding a winning business.

"It was not as easy as what people thought," said Cora. "But I start with talent. I mean, it starts with ownership. Everyone knows, they talk about us who have the highest payroll in the baseball, and that is the challenge, the way the media and supporters see us. We must win because there is a lot of money involved. But they do work excellent giving Dave an opportunity to continue to improve the team. "

The Dodgers is a down-down organization with football operations telling Roberts how he should manage a game. When things go to the right, they let Roberts take the blame though it's not more than a middle manager.

Cora after one season is paid. He proved his value and the Red Sox showed how much they appreciated.

The Dodgers think that managers are volatile. This ownership group lets Don Mattingly walk after three titles in the National West in a row. Then they signed the cheap dirt Roberts newspapers. Now he has won three other titles in the West in a row and has suffered losses in the NL Championship Series and a pair of the World Series in his three terms, there is no doubt that they still feel the same way.

Do not make any mistake, Roberts's extension is just over money, said a source with information about the discussions. Those conversations are held directly between the president of Roberts and Dodgers Stan Kasten, who is unusual in himself considering agents dealing with everyone in this day and senior economics age.

Casten's demand for the matter has not yet returned. I have known Kasten for almost 30 years since, at the age of 27, he was the young young manager of Atlanta Hawks National Basketball Association. My experience with him is that he is a tough, fair but fair negotiator.

We have taken us over the years as Kasten moved from Turner Sports to the Washington Nationals and on to the Dodgers when Guggenheim bought the franchise for $ 2.15 billion in 2012.

But I have great respect for him. I hope that the feeling will be together.

Friedman has also responded to an email again.

Roberts's position, as I can see, disagrees about how the two sides determine their value. Roberts wants to stay in Los Angeles as a manager. He loves the organization and his family loves an area L.A. He does not want to do or say anything that could jeopardize that situation.

At the same time, it is now a proven product with a record 287-200 and a win percentage .589, but also with the highest payroll parade at the baseball, which was in this sixth season $ 194.2 million slightly below the threshold. So, Roberts wants to be paid accordingly on a long-term deal.

The four-year contract, $ 12 million, has recently signed Houston Astros with A.J. Hinch, whose team had defeated the Dodgers last year in a World Series of seven-game series. However, the Dodgers do not seem to see Roberts at that level despite recent successes.

Roberts is a person of people. is widely respected among its players and the media. Some of them understand what he has to do and he has to run to succeed on a daily basis. Dodgers fans are not predominantly.

"I think we do a lot of good things," said Roberts. "And so, as I said three years ago, it's a dream work for me. Making these men grow and better men, teammates, mentors, community role models, that's a victory. That's a big victory. And obviously, I understand my job to lead to a final championship, and we have not yet achieved that. But the whole body of work, I'm proud o what we have to do. "

The Red Sox made the effort. The Dodgers may come to sensors and know the game they have as a manager too.
