Red Sox offer manager job to Cora

Red Sox offer manager job to Cora”

Cora was the first, the Red Sox meeting him in NY last Sunday.

The Red Sox have offered their managerial job to Astros bench coach Alex Cora, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag. It's expected Cora will accept once the Astros' playoff run is over.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reported on Saturday that when the American League Championship Series ends on Saturday night, the Washington Nationals plan to ask Houston for permission to speak with the team's bench coach.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal tweeted today that Cora's situation hasn't changed.

Cora would take over for John Farrell who was sacked after back-to-back division titles.

Cora, who turned 42 years old on Wednesday, has been a wanted man this postseason. Gardenhire, the longtime Minnesota Twins manager, was the third known candidate to interview for the Red Sox opening. Cora's also already familiar with the Boston organization, having been an infielder with the Red Sox from 2005-08 during a major league playing career that spanned from 1998-2011. Once Gardenhire accepted the Tigers job, it became clear Cora was the choice. It's similar to the Astros team he oversaw and helped mold alongside manager A.J. Hinch. He spent four of his 14 seasons in a Red Sox uniform.

The Red Sox' managerial search might have hit a bump in the road Friday.
