Boston Red Sox Manager Search: Bobby Valentine A New Candidate, According To Report

With Dale Sveum set to be introduced as the Chicago Cubs manager on Friday, the Boston Red Sox now need to turn their manager search in another direction. The Red Sox are expected to expand their options, and Bobby Valentine could be their newest candidate.

Valentine has "met with at least one" Red Sox owner and will meet with the rest of Boston's top executives soon, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Currently an ESPN analyst, Valentine has managed for parts of 15 seasons in the MLB. He spent parts of eight seasons with the Texas Rangers and parts of seven seasons with the New York Mets, winning two NL Wild Cards and one NL Pennant with the Mets. His career MLB managing record is 1,117-1,072. He also spent time managing in Japan. 

Valentine has been a candidate for a number of managerial openings in recent seasons.
