"Millsey" Fired By Astros; Option For Red Sox?

Charles Krupa, AP
Former Red Sox bench coach Brad Mills was fired by the Houston Astros after a horrific 39-82 record. The hitting coach and first base coach were also sacked by the 'Stros—who will be shoe-horned into the American League West next season. Mills served as Terry Francona's bench coach for six seasons, until he was hired by Houston in 2009. Will this action prompt the Red Sox to consider Mills as either an immediate replacement for Valentine or an option for 2013?
