So Larry Lucchino says the Red Sox are "in the fourth inning of their manager search".
Oh, isn't that cute? Larry is showing us that he is a real honest to goodness "baseball guy."
He thinks in baseball metaphors fercrissakes. He just can't help himself!
Well, here's the question I have for Lar da Baseball Guy...
Since the Red Sox have demonstrated that not all 4th innings are created equally...
Is this a 4th inning in July or a 4th inning in Septembah?
And by, Septembah, we mean, of course, the month of cornucopia overflowing with the Colonel's extra crispy recipe.
BEST OF MAXIM
Much was made in the wake of the Red Sox' historic collapse about leadership within the clubhouse and in the organization. A month later, the Sox have a drastic new look, with more changes to come. First baseman Adrian Gonzalez insists that, while the collapse was obviously not what anyone had in mind, the issues that sprung up following the season were overblown. He spoke about...
The names Curt Schilling, David Ortiz, Dave Roberts, Manny Ramirez and so many more are forever etched in Red Sox lore for their roles in the 2004 World Series title. As far as Tony La Russa is concerned, the former Cardinals manager has earned his place in Boston sports history, too. "The thing I would point out is -- Boston had the big dream," La Russa said on The Dennis...
The Red Sox have already received permission to talk to Mike Maddux, but they may need to wait a couple more days until he can actually talk to them. Maddux is currently sidelined with laryngitis and is unable to talk, according to The Boston Globe. Apparently, all of his conversations with the team thus far have been via text message. In a conversation with the Globe, Maddux disclosed...
After leaving the Red Sox job this fall, Terry Francona said he didn't know when he'd get back into coaching. He may not wait long. The 52-year-old will interview with the Cardinals for their managing vacancy, according to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The position became available earlier this week when Tony La Russa announced his retirement just days after...
The Red Sox are in the midst of interviewing candidates to replace Terry Francona as manager. So far the Sox have interviewed Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin and former Red Sox thrid base coach Dalve Sveum. They are also talking with Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux and Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr.
Earlier in the week Larry Lucchino said the Red Sox were in...
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?
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.
David Ortiz waits by his phone."I was expecting something would happen before (the exclusive negotiating period ran out), but so many things are going on," Ortiz said. "I know everybody has priorities, and to be honest with you, I thought I was one of them."I don't want to make fun of the guy, because I love Big Papi, but he ... kinda sounds like a teenager...
Both the Red Sox and Cubs have received permission to interview Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux, according to...
The Red Sox and Cubs are still trying to agree on Theo Epstein's value.
BOSTON (AP) -- Dale Sveum remembers both good times and tough times in Boston.
Now, he'd like another chance with the Red Sox -- as manager.
Boston interviewed Sveum, currently the Milwaukee Brewers' hitting coach, for its open managerial job on Wednesday.
A third base coach with the Red Sox in 2004 and 2005, Sveum was the second person interviewed by the Red Sox this...
Theo Epstein is looking for a new manager to lead the Chicago Cubs. He knows exactly the type of candidate he wants, too.
The Cubs and Red Sox have been granted permission to interview Mike Maddux.
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.
The Boston Red Sox have interviewed Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum for their open managerial job.
