Boston has a full slate of interviews scheduled for this week, with the Red Sox announcing that they’ll talk to Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. tomorrow, Blue Jays first base coach Torey Lovullo on Friday, and Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont on Saturday.

Alomar was already a known candidate and Lovullo makes sense, as he’s been linked to various job openings in the past. Lamont is a surprise, because he hasn’t managed since going 69-93 with the Pirates in 2000 and is 64 years old.

Lamont had zero winning seasons in four tries with the Pirates, but before that went 258-210 (.551) in three-plus seasons with the White Sox in the 1990s. He also has nearly five decades of professional baseball experience and is, so far at least, the only known candidate with previous big-league managing experience.

    “Luvullo definitely has a chance to win this job” says Ben Cherington, two weeks, before announcing that Lou Whitaker got the job.

      Red Sox fans eagerly wait for the chance to boo Lou.

    I’m 99% positive that Gene Lamont was interviewed with the Red Sox last time around.

      Or was at least reportedly under consideration.
