Just now, Look at Ray Ray Run said:

I like Cora; not a big fan of Hinch. He'd certainly be well aligned with the direction the organization wants to go though.

Alomar has done nothing to show he's an upgrade.

I agree with you here, of all 3 Cora seems best fit for the job.

RH:  Won't say anything negative about RR.  This isn't about decision making over the last few weeks.  This isn't about game 3.  Fantastic baseball man, even better person.

lol, that was such a funny sequence from Hahn. “I’m not going to say a bad thing about Ricky, you won’t hear that from me. This isn’t about what happened in Game 3 of the playoffs, this isn’t about what happened down the stretch for us.”

Rick Hahn speak for "this is exactly the reason"

Still, hell no.  This would be the worst of all of the possible moves here.  I would have rather brought Ricky back.  Hell I would rather stick Hawk on the bench than Ozzie.

Maybe Hawk could be on Ozzies staff?

Criteria for new manager:  Won't get into specific attributes as they don't want to influence answers from candidates.  Mentions that they have been very insular with their hiring, they are looking forward to hearing outsider perspectives.  Ideally they would like experience with a championship organization recently.

Hahn just said they want a manager with recent championship level experience.

Hinch ...

In oddly related news, NOTRickRenteria has posted that he blames Steve Cishek for the firing today....and the Sox are definitely trading for Lance Lynn

How many times would he trip over the mound when he came out to bring in a reliever? ;)
