ESPN: Tony La Russa joins Red Sox front office

Dave Dombrowski has known Tony La Russa for nearly 40 years, since they worked together with the Chicago White Sox. Given the chance to reunite, Dombrowski created a front-office position for La Russa—vice president and special assistant to the president of baseball operations—in which the Hall of Fame manager will assist with player development and serve as a consultant to the major and minor league coaching staffs, including rookie manager Alex Cora…..Although La Russa was careful to say he won’t hover over Cora’s shoulder—“I’m going to be very sensitive to his position, is the best way to put it”—he described himself as a “resource” and is able to provide perspective on leadership and a winning dynamic in the clubhouse.

why do I get the feeling this may not end well?

also, in TFA,  the Sox hired Ron Roenicke (who managed Cora in the minors) to be bench coach
