As we wait to see who the next manager of the Red Sox will be, Alex Cora still seems to be the favorite. That said, they have interviewed a number of other candidates. Among the non-Cora options, who is tops on that list? (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic)

Another candidate fitting that bill was recently interviewed in Yankees bench coach Carlos Mendoza. (George King III; New York Post)
