MLB Trade Rumors:
The Red Sox have already interviewed Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin and Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum for their managerial opening and we learned today that Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux will also interview for the position. Here's the latest on which candidates the Red Sox are considering:
The Red Sox will interview Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr., according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.
It's worth noting that Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer of the Cubs will also interview Maddux, Mackanin and Sveum.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Chicago Cubs officially introduced Jed Hoyer as their new general manager on Tuesday.
Hoyer resigned as the San Diego Padres general manager on Oct. 26 in order to accept the same position with the Cubs. Joining the 37-year-old Hoyer was Jason McLeod, who left San Diego to join Chicago as the team's vice president of scouting and player development."From my first conversation...
Steve Rosenbloom: Theo Epstein is the Cubs' president of baseball operations, but he sounded Tuesday like the general manager he was in Boston, running interference for his new GM, Jed Hoyer, on some big questions.
BOSTON (AP) -- Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington says Boston and Chicago have agreed to extend by at least a week their deadline for settling on compensation for Theo Epstein's departure to become the Cubs' president last month.
CHICAGO - Maybe we should take baseball chief Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer at their word. Maybe...
Here are some links from New England while we wait for the Red Sox and Cubs to finally decide on compensation for Theo Epstein...
SI.com's Jon Heyman reports (on Twitter) that the Red Sox have not yet asked the Rangers for permission to interview pitching coach Mike Maddux, but he's seen as a likely candidate for their pitching coach job.
In another tweet, Heyman says...
Theo Epstein is looking for a new manager to lead the Chicago Cubs. He knows exactly the type of candidate he wants, too.
So it looks as if Cherington and the Red Sox are pretty high on Sveum.
And it wouldn't surprise me if Theo hires Tito for the Cubs.
So the Cubs get Theo Epstein and Terry Francona while we probably get nothing in compensation for Theo and we get Dale Sveum?
2011 Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade will not return to the team next season.
The Cubs released a statement Wednesday saying they decided to move on from the inexperienced skipper.
“Jed Hoyer and I had an all-day meeting with Mike last Thursday at Wrigley Field," said newly minted Cubs President Theo Epstein in a statement. "And Mike and I continued our dialogue with...
As they are both in the middle of a managerial search -- and, starting at 12:01 a.m. ET Thursday, free agency -- the Red Sox and Cubs have received an extension to work out compensation for Theo Epstein's departure from Boston to Chicago.
The Padres are expected to name Chad MacDonald as their new vice president and assistant general manager, a major-league source told FOXSports.com.
MacDonald had most recently worked as the amateur scouting director of the New York Mets. He will now replace Jason McLeod, who left his front-office post with the Padres to join Jed Hoyer in the Chicago Cubs front office.
The Red Sox have scheduled interviews with their next two candidates to become manager. Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux is scheduled to be at Fenway Park on Tuesday with Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. set for Wednesday.
Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade will not return next season.
Theo Epstein, the team's new president of baseball operations, announced the decision Wednesday after traveling to Florida to inform Quade.
Epstein praised Quade, but said the Cubs will benefit from someone who can come in ''with a clean slate and offer new direction.''
Quade got the job after a 37...
Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade was fired Wednesday in the first major move by Theo Epstein since becoming the team's president of baseball operations. Epstein said Quade would not return after traveling to Florida to tell him in person. He called Quade an "outstanding baseball guy" but said it was time for a change.
