All that being said, it seems like theres an extremely enviable job opening. ESPN's Buster Olney is already reporting the Red Sox interest in Bobby Valentine. I want to throw in some other suggestions; how about Bob Brenly? A broadcaster now after a short but successful stint as the Arizona Diamondbacks manager. Dave Duncan has been on a leave of absence from the Cardinals lately, but assuming he comes back he would be certainly deserving of a managerial opportunity. A couple of recent pitching coaches, Bud Black and John Farrell have gotten managerial jobs, so why not Duncan- the best pitching coach in the game. And I'm sure he would have answers for some of the struggles and breakdowns of the pitchers of the past September. Joey Cora may get an interview, but he's probably the front runner for the White Sox job, the only other vacancy in MLB. (Assuming Davey Johnson comes back to Washington.)My suggestions are Duncan-1 and Brenly-2. Primarily because i think Valentine has finished managing. Who else do you think can emerge as the Red Sox next manager?
