    12 hours isn't unusual. These interviews are extensive and take all day. A lot of that time is probably the video work they do for in game decisions.

    Talk is strong that Joe Torre would consider managing again and the 72-year-old has always had an affinity for Boston.

    Update: Torre shot down the rumors, saying he doesn't know where they came from, according to CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman

    DANG IT!

    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe wrote in his Sunday notes column that “talk is strong” around the baseball world that Joe Torre might want to manage again. But it seems really doubtful to happen.

    According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, the 72-year-old Torre said Sunday afternoon that he is enjoying his current gig in the commissioner’s office and has no desire to return to the dugout. ”I don’t know where that came from,” said Torre. “Certainly not my camp.”

    So we can put that rumor to rest before it gains any sort of steam.

    Torre had a 2326-1997 career record in stints with the Mets, Braves, Cardinals, Yankees and Dodgers.

    Lamont still interested in Red Sox managing job

    NEW YORK -- Gene Lamont was the "other'' finalist last offseason when the Red Sox went looking for a manager. The Sox, of course, ended up choosing Bobby Valentine.

    With Valentine fired earlier this month, the Sox are hunting for another manager.

    Would the Detroit Tigers third-base coach be interested should the Red Sox come calling a second time?

    "Sure," said Lamont when asked before the start of Game 2 of the American League Championship Series on Sunday. "I'd like to manage again.''

    Lamont said he has yet to hear from the Red Sox, who have interviewed Tim Wallach already and plan to meet with Brad Ausmus this week.

    An industry source said the Red Sox have brought up Lamont's name in internal discussions but, for now, have not decided to interview him.

    Lamont, who managed both Chicago (from 1992 through '95, with a record of 258-210 including an A.L. Central Division championship in '93) and Pittsburgh (from 1997 through 2000, with a record of 295-352), was waiting to hear who would be hired last December when media reports circulated that Valentine would be the team's choice.

    But Lamont said there were no hard feelings over not being told of the decision first-hand, noting that a Red Sox official later explained the situation.

    "If they call [again], that would be great,'' said Lamont. "If not, I like the job I have.''

    Lamont would be decent, but not my preferred choice, not at all. And I think the Sox are going in a different direction. Remember, looks like Larry initiated the circle of managerial candidates and now it's Bens turn.

    Oh and the Torre-rumor: I wouldn't like him at all. He's been a great manager, no doubt about it, but our club is trying to write a new chaper, we need a fresh start. I want a manager with enthusiasm, someone who is able and willing to go with this new group thru ups and downs.
    Please, not another 2 year stop gap and especially not a name like Torre who's promising more than he can keep.
    That's why I liked Terry's committment to Cleveland. His 4 year deal is showing the Fans that the FO is thinking long-term, they know that even Francona won't put them to the promised land within 1-2 years.

    I am anxious to hear from the Ausmus-interview. I have a feeling he could be a great choice, a "young" local kid who's already getting lots of praise.

    Whats wrong with Torre? He never took crap from any players and got them to 4 WS. Tell me whats wrong with that? Thats A+ in my book

    I want someone who is glad to have the opportunity to coach instead of an overly entitled manager like Bobby V.

    Joe Torre is great but he isnt a long term solution IMO. Hell retire again after a few years.

    I pretty much told what's wrong with that. I am not doubting Torre's managing quality, it's second to none, but he's not the right solution in our current situation. That's my opinion.

    I for one dont want Torre. I dont know if it was just that he lost his desire or if it was managing in the NL but with the Dodgers he was awful.
