The Red Sox are down to two candidates for their managerial opening: Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont and former MLB manager Bobby Valentine. Here are the latest rumors regarding Boston's search:
- There have been no contract negotations between the Red Sox and Valentine, reports Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (on Twitter).
- Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports (on Twitter) that Lamont has not yet been told he is out of the running.
- Lamont is no longer a candidate for the job, reports ESPN's Karl Ravech (Twitter links). The position has not yet been offered to Valentine, but that appears imminent.
