Mike Lowell Shows Interest in Becoming Red Sox Manager

While the Boston Red Sox have plenty of candidates to look into for the open manager position, former third baseman Mike Lowell may have some interest. The 2007 World Series MVP and 2018 inductee into the team’s Hall of Fame has no managerial experience, but told WEEI’s Rob Bradford in a text message, “I would love to if I knew it was just for a year and Cora was guaranteed to come back.”

While the latter probably won’t happen without an exoneration from MLB’s investigation, he was always a vocal leader during his tenure with the Red Sox.

Alex Cora, a Red Sox teammate of Lowell’s for three seasons (2006 to 2008), was let go on Tuesday after he was named as the central figure in Major League Baseball’s investigation of sign-stealing by the Houston Astros when Cora was their bench coach in 2017. Cora is also alleged to have brought a similar system to Boston when he became manager before the 2018 season. MLB is continuing to investigate the allegations against the Red Sox.

Even though Red Sox ownership declined to comment on anything about the investigation or whether they think Alex Cora will be employed in MLB, Lowell’s interim interest should be taken as a good sign for things to come for the franchise.

Even better: Boston can rest assured that the former players who once dazzled in a Red Sox uniform will always represent their city.
