Boston Red Sox Manager Search: Sox Still Want To Make Hire By Thanksgiving

Time is running short, but the Boston Red Sox reportedly still want to end their manager search before Thanksgiving.

A source told Fox Sports' Jon Morosi that the Sox would like to have a manager by the time they sit down to a turkey-day feast. 

Long-time manager Bobby Valentine, who currently works as a baseball analyst for ESPN, has become the apparent front-runner for the position. During parts of 15 seasons as an MLB manager, with the Texas Rangers and New York Mets, Valentine has 1,117 wins compared to 1,072 losses. He won two NL wild cards and one NL pennant with the Mets.

The Red Sox interviewed Valentine for the second time on Monday. He told the media that he initially met with Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington and owner Larry Lucchino on Nov. 3.
