Red Sox could be targeting Monday for managerial hire

Consider this an educated guess.

The way the Red Sox are moving with their managerial search, along with Major League Baseball protocol, you might want to clear your calendar for Monday. Putting the pieces together, that date is starting to seem like the sweet spot for Dave Dombrowski announcing his new skipper.

The first piece of the equation is the Red Sox' front office moving in to interview its perceived front runners. Alex Cora was talked to in New York Sunday, while Brad Ausmus got his interview Monday. The Sox have already requestested permission to talk to Ron Gardenhire, who should be met with sooner rather than later. There might be another name or two added into the mix, but, by all accounts, the vibe given off by the Sox is that they are fairly narrowly focused.

Also to be considered is potential competition the Red Sox might face with other teams -- such Detroit, Philadelphia and the Mets -- when it comes to vying for the services of the same candidates. Cora is interviewing with the Mets Tuesday, with Gardenhire slated to meet with the Tigers in the coming days.

So, why Monday?

Well, it potentially represents the only off day between now and the start of the World Series. That could change depending on how the two respective championship series unfold, with the last scheduled LCS game slated for Sunday night if the Cubs and Dodgers go to a Game 7.

The reason this is pertinent is because of MLB guidelines when it comes to these sort of things.
