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?
