Once the Red Sox announce their expected new General Manager, Ben Cherrington, the first order of business is to select a new manager, which makes sense since Terry Francona was run out of town prior to Theo Epstein's exit. And since Cherrington reportedly isn't placing much significance on previous Major League managerial experience, Los Angeles Dodgers' third base coach Tim Wallach could be a candidate for the job according to Steve Dilbeck of the LA Times DodgerBlog.

Tim Wallach, 54, is a former MLB third baseman that played for the Expos, Dodgers, and Angels over a 16-year career starting in 1980. Previous coaching and management experience for Wallach includes a stint as hitting coach for the Dodgers and a successful run as manager for the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes, which helped him earn Pacific Coast League Manager of the Year honors.

Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum, Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin, and Rays bench coach Dave Martinez are also mentioned as potential candidates.
