SOURCE: RED SOX TO INTERVIEW TONY PENA, DEMARLO HALE

Pena could use the money

According to a major league source, the Red Sox will interview Yankees bench coach Tony Pena on Monday for the team’s vacant managerial post, with plans to interview Orioles third base coach DeMarlo Hale at some point this week.

Pena, 55, managed the Royals from 2002-05, winning the American League Manager of the Year in ‘03 after having led Kansas City to its first winning season in nine years. The 51-year-old Hale, a former Red Sox third base and bench coach, last interviewed for the Blue Jays manager’s job prior to the ‘11 season. He has extensive managing experience in the minor leagues, winning Baseball America’s Minor League Manager of the Year in ‘99 while leading the Red Sox’ Double-A affiliate in Trenton.

The Red Sox interviewed Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach on Friday and have scheduled an interview with Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus in the coming days.

I... I don't get the Pena thing.

Ausmus could be interesting. Seems like a smart guy, and obviously there's a long tradition of former catchers as successful managers.

Could be worse. Could be interviewing Trey Hillman.

Ausmus could be interesting.

I'd worry about him renouncing use of the DH in a misguided attempt to increase the fan base.

Hale is black.

Pena had a nasty and public adultery thing going on in KC. I don't know if that's relevant to managing again.

That probably just makes it easier for him to relate to the players. Though arguably, so should have the taking of painkillers.

I'm a fan of Hale. He was excellant with both players and media with the Oklahoma Redhawks.

Probably more relevant is he flat out quit his position in the middle of that.
