10:18 AM ET 10.30 | If new Sox general manager Ben Cherington wants someone who is familiar with the team and had a firm hand with the players when he was here, will Houston manager Brad Mills be considered? Mills has been part of a painful rebuilding the last two seasons in Houston, where an ownership change is also about to take place. "If it's requested, we'll deal with it as an organization," said Astros president Tal Smith. "Brad is a terrific manager. We absolutely love the job he's done for us." But as of late last week, there had been no contact.

"But after Farrell, nobody has more familiarity with the Red Sox Way than Mills."

How is that a good thing? Unless you want to continue that " way."
Familiarity is not always a good thing.

They love the job he's done? They do realize the Astros lost 106 games last season, right?

More speculation by the Globe. I hope they go in another direction for a manager.

It must be because Houston won 11 games in September and if the Red Sox had won 11 games they would have made the playoffs.
They must think he is a strong finisher........hehehhe

the red sox should get curt schilling to manage the team, since this guy has the wide knowledge in the whole baseball, who knows he may surprise everybody!!

How do we go from "will Houston manager Brad Mills be considered?" to "Houston manager on Red Sox radar"? Sounds like the only radar he is on is the Globe's. I know it's a slow time in the sports world, what with baseball over and no sign of basketball anytime soon, but can we not invent the news (Boston media)?

Well, whichever it is, I'm sure that Schilling will speak at great length and high volume about it.
