Report: Alex Cora to be named Red Sox manager

MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Check it out: something tangentially Pirates-related.

There are multiple reports indicating the Boston Red Sox will name Alex Cora their next manager after the conclusion of the American League Championship Series.

Joey Cora, the Pirates third-base coach, is Alex Cora’s brother. Alex Cora is considered a leading managerial candidate, likely to land somewhere, and wherever that is, even if it does not end up being Boston, it’s possible he’ll try and have his brother join his staff. Of course, it’s entirely plausible the brothers will not enter such an arrangement.

So the Pirates may or may not need a new third-base coach for everyone to complain about.

Alex Cora is currently serving as the Astros bench coach.
