Torey Lovullo will probably receive some phone calls when the Red Sox’ incredible season ends. Many of those calls could be congratulatory, but others might be business-related. According to CSNChicago.com, the Chicago Cubs will want to talk with Lovullo about their managerial opening. Lovullo, who has been considered a managerial candidate in the past, is currently serving as the Red Sox’ bench coach. Lovullo has managed at the minor league level, but he’s never been a big league skipper. Lovullo, who managed the PawSox in 2010, served as the Blue Jays’ first base coach in 2011 and 2012 before following John Farrell back to Boston last offseason. Lovullo wasn’t part of the Red Sox organization during the club’s 2004 and 2007 World Series runs, but does have a good working relationship with Cubs president and former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein. “I think we had a mutual respect for one another,” Lovullo told CSNChicago.com. “I was new to the organization having come from Cleveland and I saw that it was a very structured, routine-oriented organization. And I really respected that on an incredible level.” Farrell has lauded his entire coaching staff this season, and it might just be a matter of time before Lovullo gets the managerial opportunity that he desires. For now, however, Lovullo is concentrating on his current job and helping to bring a World Series title to Boston. “I know life is timing,” Lovullo reportedly said. “Everything is timing. So if it’s the right situation and the right people want it to happen, then I’d certainly consider it. I know the Chicago Cubs have quite a reputation that starts with Theo and works its way down. I know they’re going to get a great candidate in there and help get them to the right place.” The Cubs have formally interviewed four managerial candidates thus far, including Padres bench coach Rick Renteria, Rays bench coach Dave Martinez, Padres executive A.J. Hinch and ESPN analyst and former Indians manager Manny Acta. Dale Sveum was recently fired as Cubs manager two years into a three-year deal. Have a question for Ricky Doyle?
