The Red Sox expand their pitching coach interview list

Nov 1, 2012, 9:41 AM EDT

The Red Sox were previously reported to be interviewing Rick Peterson for their pitching coach gig. While he still remains a candidate, Sean McAdam of reports that the list is expanding:


St. Claire is the current pitching coach for the Marlins, but given Ozzie Guillen’s firing, his job may not be the most secure thing on the planet. He’s also the uncle of professional wrestler Ryback, which is something I did not know until I looked at his Wikipedia page a minute ago.

Juan Nieves, the former Brewers pitcher who once tossed a no-hitter,  is the bullpen coach for the White Sox.

    Can they please expand it to include the Twins’ Rick Anderson, and take him away?

    Tell ’em to be “Dubee-ous” and ask the Phillies for permission to talk to Rich Dubee. That way, Uncle “Cholly” won’t have any crutch at all for making moves, since he inexplicably has decided not to have a bench coach…

    Interesting that Bruce Walton, Farrell’s former pitching coach, doesn’t appear to be anywhere in the discussion.
