Dombrowski Reportedly To Interview Alex Cora For Red Sox Managerial Job

Former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, whose connection to Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowksi dates back to their time together in Detroit, completed a formal interview for the Red Sox managerial job on Monday.

No frontrunners have emerged for Boston's managerial vacancy just yet, but retired Major League Baseball catcher and current special assistant Jason Varitek and Tigers' manager Brad Ausmus have also been mentioned as possible replacements for former skipper John Farrell. The Boston Herald made an observation on how odd it would seem, interviewing candidates who are still in the postseason, however, they quoted Dombrowski as saying, "I have done this in the past, and it is not that unusual".

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports tweeted on Monday that Ausmus is one of the candidates for the Red Sox gig - which became open last week when John Farrell was sacked.

Cora, a former member of the Red Sox, remains in the postseason with the Astros.

After a thrilling match, Sidharth Malhotra said, "We're going to practice much more but the boys played really well". It was Mahendra Singh Dhoni who again stole the limelight, not on the cricket field this time but in football.

Two fairly significant names have dropped out of the running to become the next manager of the New York Mets.

Per Heyman, Ausmus, who compiled a 314-332 record over the past four years in Detroit, remains interested in other openings, including the job in Boston.

The Boston media doesn't seem thrilled about the idea of Ausmus coming to town.

"The real concern with Ausmus, however, is the way he handled public scrutiny", Dolloff wrote.
