Alex Cora – Nick Fury
Here we are, my friends, the end of the road and we finish this journey with the leaders. Nick Fury and Alex Cora both did battle in their day and eventually would become the heads of their squads. Alex Cora was a reliable player during his career and never let his team down. He was a member of the 2007 championship Red Sox team.

He would then become a 2x champion as a bench coach for the Astros in 2017. He’d finish the hat trick by winning the 2018 World Series in his first season as a manager with the Red Sox. That’s a hell of a resume.
Nick Fury much like Cora would make his name in battle and transform that into a way to lead the Avengers Initiative later in his career. Fury earned his stripes on the battlefield and also as a spy during the Cold War. He is more than comfortable during an altercation and will do what it takes for his side to be successful.
Even with the government trying to put an end to The Avengers, Fury would constantly go rogue with his team and fight for their necessity in an unpredictable world. The way Fury will always stand and fight for his team is much like Alex Cora. Cora will always stick up for his players and his outside the box management style.
During the 2018 season and especially the postseason, every move on the chess board that Cora made paid off and there was rarely a misstep. Both are strong leaders that use their own experience in the field to manage their teams to success. The Red Sox and The Avengers are two teams that will do what it takes to win and will always band together when the going gets tough.
