Astros bench coach Alex Cora has been described as a leading candidate for multiple managerial openings since the end of the regular season. He has been tied most closely to the Red Sox job, however, having already interviewed with Boston and with several people reporting that he is the Sox top choice.

Now come two reports that the job will be given to Cora, possibly as early as this weekend.

The first report comes from NBC Bostons Evan Drellich, who hears from his sources that no doubt its Cora, and that the Red Sox are just waiting for the ALCS to end in order to offer it to him. If the Astros are eliminated, itd certainly happen as soon as Sunday or Monday. If the Astros advance it may be tricker, timing wise, to make a formal introduction since hed be busy preparing for the World Series, but they could theoretically name him and introduce him later.
