Hidden blessings: A manager and bench coach reunite to steer the Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. — When the baseball turned against them, which wasn’t wholly unexpected because it turns against everyone here and there, that’s when Jerry Narron would turn his head toward Ron Roenicke, and Roenicke would know what Narron was about to say.

He’d want to hear it anyway. Almost needed to hear it.

Roenicke was manager of the Milwaukee Brewers for four seasons and 25 games starting in 2011. Narron was his bench coach for every inch of 684 games. They’d lived this thing from every angle for so long — as prospects and players and released players and coaches and managers (and, one day, as fired managers) — they bore all the same riches and scars.

They believed in the same God and believed there was one way to play the game and believed those religions were not entirely separate. They also believed in each other.

This wasn’t exactly what Frank Loesser meant with “I Believe In You”, is it?

Roenicke named Boston’s interim skipper

FORT MYERS, Fla.—On the eve of Spring Training, which starts for the Red Sox on Wednesday morning, the club officially elevated bench coach Ron Roenicke to interim manager on Tuesday.

But that interim title should vanish quickly.

Once MLB completes the sign-stealing investigation involving the 2018 Red Sox, Roenicke is expected to be named the 48th manager in club history.

Chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom all but said that at Tuesday’s press conference.

So, what do we make of the logic behind this hire?

Ron Roenicke reportedly in line to become Red Sox manager

The Red Sox may soon have their next manager and it appears his name will likely be Ron Roenicke.

The Boston Globe is reporting that Roenicke would indeed be the Red Sox choice to replace Alex Cora after a ruling comes down from Major League Baseball regarding its investigation of allegations the Sox cheated in 2018. Commissioner Rob Manfred reiterated Thursday what Red Sox players had been told, which is that MLB’s plan was to have the process completed before the start of spring training (Wednesday).

The 63-year-old has been a bench coach with the Sox the last two seasons, having served as the Brewers manager from 2011-15. Just prior to joining Boston Roenicke was the third base coach for the Dodgers and then the Angels.

And now, to see if the other shoe drops…..
