BOSTON -- For the second time on the three occasions the Red Sox have been in the market for a new manager under owner John W. Henry, they began by interviewing a third-base coach from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Tim Wallach, 55, spent the entire day meeting with general manager Ben Cherington and members of Cherington's staff as the Sox opened their first round of interviews Friday in search of a replacement for Bobby Valentine, who was fired eight days earlier. Wallach had dinner with Cherington and his staff Friday night and on Saturday was scheduled to fly back to his home on the West Coast.
"I thought it went well," said Wallach, a five-time All-Star as a third baseman who twice before has interviewed for big league managing jobs, first in 2006 with the San Diego Padres, then in 2010 with the Milwaukee Brewers.
