Default ALEX CORA (RED SOX MANAGER

The Red Sox began the Alex Cora era on Monday, as the club formally introduced the former Astros bench coach as the 47th manager in its history during a news conference at Fenway Park.

It was a reintroduction of sorts for Cora, who played for the Red Sox from 2005-08, which included the World Series championship year of '07, as part of a 14-year Major League playing career. He is the first minority manager in Boston's 117-year franchise history.
"Boston is a challenge, but for me it's not," Cora said. "I understand they live baseball 24/7. I come from a country [Puerto Rico] that does that, and with my family it's the same."
"We went through an interview process and we got a lot of feedback from other individuals," said president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski. "We thought he brings leadership, communication and respect and analytics to coaching. Everywhere we turned and talked to people ... I received positive feedback. Young players, veterans."

I like him he lives and breathes baseball. When he played he would put his body on the line and slide into base.. some of these new players are expecting muffins and soft drink on arrival not dust and dripping in sweat..

The Red Soxs are in good hands..
