Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux and Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. are the Red Sox’s next interviewees, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.

Texas and Cleveland both granted permission for the interviews, which come on the heels of Boston speaking to Philadelphia bench coach Pete Mackanin earlier this week.

Alomar previously expressed interest in replacing Ozzie Guillen with the White Sox, but never actually got an interview in Chicago. Maddux is also speaking to the Cubs about replacing Mike Quade, which means the Red Sox may end up fighting Theo Epstein over him.

    Alomar was one of the two finalists for the Toronto job last year.

    And the Sox-Cubs haven’t even worked out Theo yet. This is going to be a loooong offseason.

    As if I need another reminder that I’m getting old…Alomar Jr? I remember collecting about a dozen of his rookie cards.

    If there is even a chance of the Rangers losing Maddux, I hope they will step up and give him manager size money to stay. I would even be fine with getting rid of Wash and promoting Maddux. He has been too valuable to the Rangers team to lose. Far more valuable then Washington in my opinion.

    I really want Sandy to get a shot. I really don’t want it to be in Boston.

    I’ve had a feeling for the last few weeks that Maddux may end up being “The Guy”.
