Allen, who was reportedly the most recent interviewee, has been serving as the Rays' Triple A pitching coach. Cherington said on the SiriusXM MLB Radio Network that the Red Sox have interviewed other candidates beyond the ones which...

Red Sox pitcher Daniel Bard joined WEEI.com's Rob Bradford for an appearance on the Bradford Files podcast and talked about his planned transformation from reliever to starter.
Bard said that heading into the offseason he expected that Jonathan Papelbon would re-sign with the team, and he saw an opportunity to move into the starting rotation.
