Boston Red Sox to interview candidate for new manager

It's one of many reasons why Hinch recruited Cora to work for him years before he accepted the Astros' bench coach job. One leading reason for this rumor is the connection between Ausmus and his former boss Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski.

The Astros play the Yankees in Game 3 of the A.L. Championship Series on Monday and Sunday is a travel day for the teams.

The Boston Herald's Chad Jennings reports that former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus interviewed with the Red Sox on Monday in NY.

The Boston media doesn't seem thrilled about the idea of Ausmus coming to town. He's a former major leaguer with 1,273 games played as an infielder.

Former Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has been called the "favorite" to win the Tigers job, although it's likely the search will continue through October with a new manager being named after the World Series. In other words, if Ausmus can't get the Red Sox gig (or another he likes), he might choose to sit out a season rather than take over a suboptimal situation.

Alex Cora is scheduled to meet with the Mets Tuesday, a source said. I've read that the Red Sox must hire a minority candidate when they fill their managerial opening.

This is not the first time that Cora has been interviewed for a managerial position.

Cafardo also linked Cora to the Phillies last week. That's only a year older than David Ortiz who was a longtime leader in the Red Sox clubhouse.

"We have a young core of players that are outstanding young talents".

Ausmus has been a hot name in Boston since the moment the Red Sox fired John Farrell.
