You can cross one name off the potential managerial wishlist for the Red Sox, as Bruce Bochy has no intentions of coming out of retirement for any of the teams now in search of a new manager, according to Ken Rosenthal.

At 64 years old, and with three World Series titles to his name, Bochy’s decision to remain retired is hardly shocking. But it does further dwindles the list of viable candidates down for the Red Sox, the Astros, and now the Mets, who parted ways with Carlos Beltran after less than three months on the job (it was mutual, of course).

Vegas currently has former Red Sox catcher and team captain Jason Varitek, who has worked with the organization in various roles both on and off the field since 2012, as the odds-on favorite to replace Alex Cora.

The Astros, meanwhile, have already started their interview process with Buck Showalter and John Gibbons.
