Alex Cora admits ‘bombing’ Tigers interview before second chance with Red Sox

No one in Major League Baseball had a better 2018 than Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora.

The first-year skipper took over an established contender that was searching for answers after back-to-back quick eliminations in the ALDS. In a span of 12 months, Cora unflinchingly provided all of the answers and even rewrote most of the questions.

Cora helped transform Boston into an unstoppable force that won a franchise record 108 games during the regular season, before plowing through the postseason to win its ninth World Series championship. In the process, he made history by becoming the first-ever Puerto Rican born manager to bring home a World Series crown.

Would that all of us on the job market were so lucky….
