Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. "It's not for me right now," Lowell said in a phone interview with CBSSports.com. Lowell, an analyst for MLB Network, said he intends to spend time enjoying his family and working on his broadcasting career, noting that he managed his son's 7-and-under team to a championship last year. Lowell didn't rule out managing at a higher level at some point though. "That's something that might intrigue me in the future," Lowell said. "I like being on the field more than in an office -- but it's just not something I'm ready to do at this point. The time commitment for a manager is greater than it is for a player, which is something people don't realize. The time isn't something I'm willing to give up right now." ESPNBoston | Lowell: Managing 'not for me right now' It's always been fun to speculate about recently retired players becoming managers, but thanks to the successes of Mike Matheny and Robin Ventura, now every opening is awash with suggestions of former players. Lowell wasn't the only one mentioned for Boston, of course. Jason Varitek is the odds-on favorite. People have talked about Tim Wakefield, either as manager or pitching coach. Even Brad Ausmus has been whispered. I'm not sure what the pull is here. It reminds me a bit of the Bobby Valentine signing -- just looking for a familiar name. The important thing is finding someone who can have a strong working relationship with Ben Cherington and Co. It doesn't matter if it's Trot Nixon or John Farrell or Torey Lovullo or some guy you've never heard of -- the important thing is they can work with Cherington and craft a plan to get back on track. Speaking of plans, the Ted's Army crew is hard at work with our own personal offseason recommendations for the Red Sox, which we'll be rolling out this week. Mine will be up later on today; keep an eye out for Nick's, Ben's, and Aaron's later.
