Frankly, Cora has some time as an ESPN analyst on Deportes and he sounds knowledgeable. He also has a bit of front office experience too.  Cora has always been spotted as a potential manager, and has been around different coaching / management trees.  I don't think it is an accident that Boston went for him first because he favorably impressed them years ago.  you could see Sam Kennedy and probably John Henry strongly favoring him at the outset.  It's also probably no accident that Martinez is somewhat known here from past interviews.  I'm guessing they are still kicking themselves over Matt Williams rather than Martinez 4 years ago.
Yea. One of the reasons Martinez never had a manager job before is that the Nats were hiring Davey, Matt and Dusty. Phillies hired Ryne Sandberg and Pete Mackanin. Some bad choices.
