Well, it appears that the next Red Sox manager is going to come from a pool of five candidates. Those would be John Farrell, Tim Wallach, Brad Ausmus, Tony Pena and DeMarlo Hale. Last week, we asked who people felt should be the manager in general. Ausmus actually got the majority of the votes with Dave Martinez (not interviewed) running second, then Other, followed by Farrell and Mueller.

But now we want to know who you tab the next skipper with the candidates now known. Again, those are:

  • John Farrell
  • Tim Wallach
  • Brad Ausmus
  • Tony Pena
  • DeMarlo Hale

Oh, and the full breakdown of the previous poll? Here:
