Red Sox to interview Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach

Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is congratulated by third base coach Tim Wallach after hitting the game-winning home run against the Washington Nationals during the tenth inning of their MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles Reuters

Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston reports that the Red Sox will begin interviewing candidates for their managerial opening Friday and Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald has uncovered one name on their list: Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach.

According to Silverman the Red Sox have contacted Wallach and he’s interested, so he’s expected to come in for an interview soon.

Silverman adds that the Red Sox are still interested in Blue Jays manager John Farrell, but aren’t counting on being able to work out compensation with Toronto. Wallach’s contract with the Dodgers expired at the end of the regular season, so he’s a free agent.

    Former Expos, just like Francona. Tim is a very laidback dude

    Ted Williams! he was a good player, has a Boston background and managing experience! Just set his head on the bench! Dont have to worry about him running on the field to argue with an Ump and getting thrown out. Doesn’t argue with the media. Perfect hire!!

      Nah, they hired a talking head last year…they won’t make that mistake again.

    Let Toronto keep Farrell. If they had any brains, they’d let the Red Sox take him off their hands and avoid paying him for another disastrous season.

    Another bad choice. They need to think outside the box. That means Veritek, Palmer or Schilling.
