Red Sox reel in Alex Cora

The Red Sox have a new manager, but for now, he has another job to do.

Alex Cora, the Astros bench coach and former Red Sox infielder, will be the 47th manager in Red Sox history. The team announced yesterday that Cora has accepted a three-year deal to replace John Farrell. The contract includes a team option for 2021.

Luis Tiant's journey, which has faded with time, is key to Hall vote

Jim Rice’s 15-year wait to get into the Hall of Fame doesn’t sound so bad in comparison to the limbo Luis Tiant finds himself in.

The cigar-smoking El Tiante, now 77, is one of 10 people who can gain entry to Cooperstown through a committee vote during the winter meetings. He needs at least 12 of 16 votes to make it.

Saul Wisnia, an author assisting Tiant in his upcoming autobiography, points out that Tiant's 66.1 wins above replacement lifetime puts him ahead of three other pitchers from his ERA who are in the Hall of Fame: Don Drysdale (61.2), Jim Bunning (60.3) and Catfish Hunter (36.6).

Dombrowski Open-Minded on Deals, Nothing Yet

Dave Dombrowski is no stranger to making deals at the Major League Baseball Winter meetings. The Red Sox president of baseball operations just last year swung a trade with the Chicago White Sox to land ace Chris Sale.

Red Sox still not feeling urgency

BOSTON — As the Red Sox opened the gates at Fenway Park to kick off ticket sales on Saturday, there was no blockbuster acquisition to parade in front of the home fans — no Chris Sale or Craig Kimbrel or Hanley Ramirez already in tow to promise improvement over last year’s version.

The last time the Red Sox went this deep into the offseason without signing a major-league free agent was 2008, fresh off an ALCS appearance — when the biggest offseason addition was reliever Takashi Saito. Boston didn’t win a playoff game in the next four seasons.

That quiet offseason is juxtaposed against the very loud one down I-95 in the Bronx, where the Yankees have added Giancarlo Stanton, re-signed CC Sabathia and cleared room under the luxury tax for at least one more notable move.

The Red Sox continue to say that hasn’t changed their plan.
