Astros Seek Red Sox Coaches for Managerial Job

The Red Sox granted the Houston Astros permission to speak with first base coach Tim Bogar and bench coach Brad Mills about the team’s managerial opening. Mills and third base coach Demarlo Hale interviewed for the Seattle Mariners open job last season, but lost out to Don Wakamatsu.

“It’s pretty cool,” said Mills about the opportunity. “It just goes to show how many good guys we have on this coaching staff and it says a lot about Tito (Francona) and Theo (Epstein) and ownership and the people they’ve put together here.”

Bogar may have the edge due to his ties to GM Ed Wade (from their days with the Phillies) and that Bogar played with the Astros from 1997-2000. He also managed the Astros Single-A affiliate from 2004-2005.

The Indians asked Sox pitching coach John Farrell if he was interested in their managerial opening, but Farrell declined and should be back with the Sox in 2010.
