Here’s something that’s not entirely surprising, but noteworthy, anyway.
Alex Speier of WEEI.com reports that Red Sox will not interview any candidates for their managerial vacancy until the Theo Epstein situation is involved.
The Cubs have expressed interest in Epstein for their general manager vacancy and the Red Sox GM was reportedly spotted in a Chicago-area Starbucks this weekend.
While it’s not clear when Epstein will make a decision about his future, the Red Sox are in no hurry to settle on a new manager, anyway. According to Speier, the team will likely consider one or more candidates who are still involved in the playoffs. Brewers hitting coach (and former Red Sox third base coach) Dale Sveum is believed to be one of them.
