Dan Roche brought his sunny disposition to the 98.5 The Sports Hub airwaves this morning. Instead of just his usual love of bat and ball, he actually brought some news. Rochie with some informed speculation that Alex Cora could be coming back to the Red Sox.
While being asked about the reasons for not naming a manager as players are filing into camp, Roche brought up Cora. Specifically, he brought up the MLB investigation, and how in light of the Wall Street Journal report that Cora might not get any punishment. He said he was told that everyone should 'just wait' on Alex Cora, and that perhaps he would be completely exonerated. He speculated, in light of what he's hearing, on the Red Sox saying that they had mutually parted ways, and that Cora could come back that way, and how the clubhouse would explode when he walked in.
