Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said the team plans to add more candidates to their list of possible managers, something that was in the works before Mike Maddux bowed out of consideration today.
But do not expect any of those candidates to come from within the organization.
"Havenít ruled out internal candidates but not focused there right now," Cherington said via e-mail.
The Tampa Tribune reported today that the Red Sox have not asked for permission to speak to Rays bench coach Dave Martinez.
UPDATE, 10:30 p.m.: Dale Sveum interviewed with the Cubs today and Mike Maddux remains scheduled to interview with Chicago on Wednesday.
