Brad Mills Could Be Leaving The Red Sox

Per Ken Rosenthal:
No word yet on the Mariners’ next manager, but two rival executives speculated on Monday that the team will choose Red Sox bench coach Brad Mills. Their reasoning: Mills, after working for the Sox, is well-schooled in statistical analysis, and the M’s are forming an entire department devoted to sabermetrics. The department will be run by Tony Blengino, a longtime statistical analyst who came over from the Brewers with new GM Jack Zduriencik …
There is another rumor going around today that it will be A’s bench coach Don Wakamatsu. Mills and Terry Francona have been best friends since their days at the University of Arizona.
