Red Sox GM Brian O'Halloran on GHS: We're happy with Ron Roenicke


On Thursday morning, Ken Laird, producer of The Greg Hill Show, wrote a column saying Alex Cora is still the perfect person to manage the Red Sox.

Cora, of course is suspended by Major League Baseball for his role in the Astros' cheating scandal, but can return to the game next season.

Red Sox assistant general manager Brian O'Halloran joined the show and was asked about Laird's column and when the Red Sox could reach out to Cora?

Within his answer he said the organization is happy with their current manager, Ron Roenicke.

“Let me answer that two ways: the sort of technical answer to your question regarding his suspension I believe is the end of the Major League season, which includes the playoffs, but that is not something we’re focused on," he said. "We have a manager that we’re happy with, which is Ron Roenicke, and that is what we’re focused on.”

The Red Sox have not got off to a good start to the season, as they are currently 4-8 and struggling both on the mound and at the plate.

With all that being said, O'Halloran said he still has a great deal of respect for Cora.

“Look, I worked with Alex for two years as a manager and of course knew him as a player," he said. "I certainly have a ton of respect for Alex and what he did here and he is a great friend. I don’t think anything has changed from where we stood when all that went down. He’s an incredible guy in many ways.”

Roenicke is only under contract through the end of this season.
