Alex Cora Set To Be Named The New Red Sox Manager

Multiple reports indicate that the Red Sox will name current Astros bench coach Alex Cora to be their new manager. The announcement could come as soon as this weekend—at the conclusion of the ALCS. If the Astros advance to the World Series (and, if there is any justice in the world, they will), then the formal in-person announcement may need to wait until the conclusion of The Fall Classic. While Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski issued a statement late Thursday that no decision had yet been made, it's pretty clear that Cora will be the next skipper of The Carmine Hose.
