The Detroit Tigers’ loss is the Boston Red Sox’s gain.
Alex Cora interviewed for the Tigers’ managerial vacancy after the 2017 Major League Baseball season before ultimately interviewing with the Red Sox and becoming Boston’s new skipper. Clearly, Cora left a strong impression on Red Sox owner John Henry and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, but he apparently didn’t fare quite as well while meeting with the Tigers’ brass.
Yahoo! Sports’ Mark Townsend was given an opportunity to screen “Alex Cora: The Making of a Champion,” a 60-minute documentary set to premiere Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on MLB Network, and reported over the weekend the Red Sox manager reveals he “bombed” his interview with the Tigers.
“I did the interview, and on the way to the hotel I called (my brother) Joey and I said, ‘That wasn’t good,'” Cora recalled, according to Townsend.
