Alex Cora Is A Solid Choice As New Red Sox Manager

For years, new Red Sox skipper Alex Cora was hailed as a 'manager-in-waiting'—a cerebral guy with natural leadership skills. During his tenure as a utility infielder for Boston, he kept his nose clean, kept his mouth shut (for the most part) and did his job—really well. He even mentored a young Dustin Pedroia during his early-season rookie slump—even though Cora would have been the default option at second base. So, can he right The Good Ship Carmine Hose—reeling from two straight early playoff exits? As The Boston Herald's Steve Buckley rightly points out, Cora's biggest challenge...

Alex Cora Set To Be Named New Red Sox Manager

Alex Cora Set To Be Named New Red Sox Manager

Multiple reports indicate that the Red Sox will name current Astros bench coach Alex Cora to be their new manager. The announcement could come as soon as this weekend—at the conclusion of the ALCS. If the Astros advance to the World Series—if there is any justice in the world, they will—then the formal in-person announcement may need to wait until the conclusion of The Fall Classic. While Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski issued a statement late Thursday that no decision had yet been made, it's pretty clear that Cora will be the next skipper of The Carmine Hose.
