REPORT: Nationals Poaching Of Alex Cora Will Not Work

According to's Ken Rosenthal, interest in Alex Cora by the Washington Nationals will not prevent his hiring as the new manager of the Boston Red Sox. Rosenthal quotes sources that—as soon as the Astros eliminate The Bronx Embalmers from the ALCS (i.e., tonight)—Cora will be named skipper of The Carmine Hose. Earlier reports had suggested that—after firing Dusty Baker—the Nationals were putting on a full-court press to snare Cora.
