Boston Red Sox Manager Search: No Announcement Until Next Week, Likely Valentine or Lamont

It appears the Boston Red Sox have narrowed their search for a new manager to two candidates, Bobby Valentine and Gene Lamont. 

Valentine, 61, has not managed in the Major Leagues since 2002, when he managed the New York Mets. He has worked as an analyst for ESPN the previous two years.

Lamont, 64, has not managed in the Major Leagues since 2000, when he managed the Pittsburgh Pirates. Lamont is a former AL Manager of the Year, winning the award in 1993.

According to Pete Abraham of the Globe, an official announcement will not be made until next week at the earliest. 

Nothing will be settled today according to team sources and the earliest an announcement will be made is next week. Gene Lamont did indeed meet with ownership earlier this week, so he joins Bobby Valentine in that regard.
