Torey Lovullo More Likely To Be D'Backs New Manager

Torey Lovullo
UPDATE: Torey to interview
According to multiple reports, it seems almost inevitable that Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo will be named as the new Arizona Diamondbacks manager. The announcement is expected to come as soon as the World Series ends—the latest date of which would be November 2nd. With multiple front office types fleeing Yawkey Way for Arizona, the Lovullo defection is a logical follow-on. New D'Backs GM Mike Hazen has long been a booster of Lovullo. As Dave 'Captain Queeg' Dombrowski moves to further consolidate his power base, many are questioning what exactly team leadership will look like in 2017. Currently, there are a lot of "assistant-GM" Indians (no pun intended) and one chief (DD himself). We can hear the marbles clicking from here. And, where are the strawberries?
