It seems pretty clear that the first order of business for this Red Sox this winter has to be to figure out their managerial situation, but to this point all has been quiet on this front. On the topic, however, R.J. Anderson gives a national perspective on some potential candidates with a list that includes names both familiar and a few I hadn’t heard in connection to the job. (R.J. Anderson; CBS)

Meanwhile, Chaim Bloom’s old team is still in the postseason having started their ALCS against the Astros last night. Their success is undeniable both in this postseason and through the regular season, and the Red Sox could look there for some inspiration moving forward. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

The biggest task for Bloom and company, of course, is to address the rotation. While in Tampa, Bloom’s front office struck gold with their Charlie Morton signing. John Tomase tries to find an option with whom Boston could replicate that success. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

If you’re looking for some good news, the Yankees are also no longer playing baseball, wondering where they go from here. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)
