Dale Sveum Gets Second Managerial Interview With Boston Red Sox

Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum will reportedly is scheduled for a second interview with Boston about the Red Sox vacant manager job, according to an initial FOXSports.com report that was since confirmed by WEEI.

The Red Sox could be battling former GM Theo Epstein for Sveum, according to the Ken Rosenthal report:

Sveum will meet with Sox general manager Ben Cherington and ownership representatives at the GM/owners’ meetings in Milwaukee.

However, he remains high on the Cubs’ list, sources say.

The Red Sox expect to talk again with at least one more candidate besides Sveum this week, one source said.

Red Sox fans remember Sveum from his time as third base coach for the Red Sox. WEEI has a reminder:

Sveum served as the Red Sox' third base coach in 2004 and 2005. While he was often the target of criticism by Sox fans for his aggressive (and sometimes ill-fated) decisions to wave runners to the plate, he was widely respected by Sox players for his preparation, commitment and baseball acumen.
