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…..

I can't keep Ron Roenicke and Rick Renteria straight ... and Renteria even managed the Cubs for a year.

Renteria managed the Cubs and White Sox. Ron Roenicke is nicknamed "Riverboat Ron" and helmed the Milwaukee Brewers & Carolina Panthers.

I love this thread already.
   6. SoSH U at work Posted: February 09, 2020 at 12:51 PM (#5922995)
I don't know where exactly they'd slot, but Richie Rich is clearly closer to the top than Richard Rich.

First place on the R.R. list belongs to J.R.R. Tolkien. *ducks*
   8. philphan Posted: February 09, 2020 at 01:57 PM (#5923007)
Ray Ratto should be up there somewhere.

And pitcher Robbie Ray. Then there’s Rick Renick. And Rick Reichardt. And don’t forget Ron Reed, who both pitched in MLB and played in the NBA!

Rocky Raccoon?

Paging robinred to the thread. robinred, please come to the Roenicke thread to assert your place in the lineup.

Followed closely by George R. R. Martin *ducks behind Fancy*
   13. Walt Davis Posted: February 09, 2020 at 10:01 PM (#5923090)
I would nominate jazz pianist Renee Rosnes but "Renee" is a nickname for "Irene" in this case and is pronounced "ree-nee" ... and the last name is even pronounced "roz-ness" ... so it just sounds terrible. Still, above Ray Rice as would be nearly every RR in the world.
   14. Greg Pope Posted: February 09, 2020 at 10:35 PM (#5923096)
The list in #3 has Rita Rudner way too high and Rikki Rockett way too low.

That is all.

EDIT: Oops, I was thinking of CC Deville. Rikki Rockett can keep his position near the bottom. But Rita Rudner can move to just ahead of Ray Rice.

44. Ronald Reagan
45. Rex Ryan
46. Rob Ryan
47. Ralph Reed
48. Ray Rice
49. RR Martin, George


At least until he finally finishes another book.

What is the list? Guys who badly needed an editor?
   18. puck Posted: February 10, 2020 at 12:34 AM (#5923111)
Rainer Rilke
Roy Rogers
Rajon Rondo
Ricky Rubio

How quickly we forget Rick Renick.

Edit: Who I see mentioned above by philphan, to whom a coke.

No love for Roger Repoz. It's like I don't know any of you people.

Ratzo Rizzo.

Red Ryder carbine action, 200-shot, range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time.
   23. Ben Broussard Ramjet Posted: February 10, 2020 at 11:41 AM (#5923170)
Robert Charles 'Jack' Russell, eccentric Gloucestershire and England wicketkeeper, not to mention rather talented watercolours artist, should be included. Imagine if Adrian Beltre got upset not about having his head touched, but if his cereal was soaked in milk for an incorrect length of time. (Similar defensive prowess, too.)
   24. gef, talking mongoose & vexatious litigant Posted: February 10, 2020 at 11:49 AM (#5923172)
Rip Repulski. Because his last name was Repulski. He should've traded surnames with Don Mossi.

   26. Graham & the 15-win "ARod Vortex of suck" Posted: February 10, 2020 at 12:04 PM (#5923175)
Add Rick Reilly toward the bottom of the list.
   27. The Mighty Quintana Posted: February 10, 2020 at 12:44 PM (#5923180)
Ravishing Rick Rude needs to be on this list.
   28. Tom Nawrocki Posted: February 10, 2020 at 12:44 PM (#5923181)
Can't believe Chris left off Ray Rayner. I thought you were from Chicago!

Roy "Wrong Way" Riegels should be somewhere near the bottom of the list.
   29. Chip Posted: February 10, 2020 at 01:50 PM (#5923226)
Richard Russell, raging racist.
   30. Chip Posted: February 10, 2020 at 01:58 PM (#5923231)
Richard Rich.

“For Wales? Why Richard, it profit a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world ... but for Wales!”
   31. Snowboy Posted: February 10, 2020 at 02:28 PM (#5923255)
Rock Raines (baseball)
should be on the list (at #30!)
   32. Dag Nabbit at ExactlyAsOld.com Posted: February 10, 2020 at 07:03 PM (#5923319)
Can't believe Chris left off Ray Rayner. I thought you were from Chicago!

In a half-hour, I'm teaching a class: History of Chicago.

But Ray Rayner's before my time.

   34. SG Posted: February 13, 2020 at 10:01 AM (#5924130)
How can we have an RR thread on Baseball Think Factory without mentioning Rich Rifkin of the lengthy intros?

And for comic book nerds -- Reed Richards
