Red Sox to interview Tony Pena, De Marlo Hale

Oct 15, 2012, 8:52 AM EDT

Rob Bradford of WEEI reports two more names in the Red Sox managerial search: Yankees bench coach Tony Pena and Orioles third base coach DeMarlo Hale.

Pena used to be the Royals manager, of course, once winning manager of the year which is kinda nuts because that weird 2003 Royals season sorta feels like it never happened. Or at least shouldn’t have happened.  Hale, for his part, was a longt-time minor league manager in the Sox system before becoming their third base coach and bench coach under Terry Francona.

Pena is to interview today, on the Yankees’ offday in the ALCS. Hale will interview some time later this week. As previously reported, both Tim Wallach and Brad Ausmus are already in the running.

    The Red Sox are trying to get creative here.

    I’m just waiting for the big Sox-Rangers/Jacoby Ellsbury-Derek Holland trade to go down. Then ZERO people will want to manage that roster.

    I was at Bed, Bath, and Beyond yesterday and there was a photo to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Fenway with “facsimile signatures”. I thought they would be pre-trade signatures, but no. There was a big fat James Loney signature on there. They’re really still trying to sell the dream. Dicks.

    Can’t they take Kevin Long instead? He’s the greatest hitting coach ever.

    I guess that the Blue Jays told the Red Sox where to shove their lust for John Farrell.

      I hope so. You can keep him.

    When will they interview Dave Martinez?

    Hey, Holder is available, in fact the entire Cabinet is on the free agent block come November.
    They can dig some raghead out of the hole in Gitmo and make him Boston manager. But no Pork Ribs and beer in the clubhouse, gotta be lamb chops and Jack D ( we always put a case of Jack in the container when we shipped lumber to Saudi) Jack and Coke, things go better with Coke-cola, no smell, no color, no sh*t
