The Red Sox may have fallen to the Astros in this year’s ALDS, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t scout them enough.
At least not when it came to one of the Red Sox—namely bench coach Alex Cora who the it was announced yesterday will be named Boston's new manager after the completion of the ALCS.
And that may be today given the Astros have lost three straight games to the Yankees after taking a two games to none lead and have been outscored 19-5 in those past three games.
Even if they do win, it is unclear whether Cora would remain with the Astros should they reach the World Series
The 42-year-old Cora played 14 years as an infielder in the major leagues—including four with the Red Sox, from 2005-08—before retiring in 2011. Since then, he has done commentary work for ESPN and ESPN Deportes. He joined the Astros shortly after the conclusion of last season.
