We noticed Raines running out to coach first around the 4th inning. Was Baines not there today? Was this mentioned at all on tv or radio?

Raines definitely was coaching first. Maybe because Walker was at his daughter's law school graduation, Harold was the acting hitting coach. Its just a guess.

I mentioned this to The Dude at the game and we were both clueless.

But you did mention that you were not a part of mentioning anything.

I think he was out there for the whole game.

I'm wondering what Rock's future with the club/in baseball is. He's the only member of the coaching staff who didn't get re-upped last week.

I heard somewhere (these message boards?) that Raines has ambitions to manage. Could be he's looking for that sort of position either within or outside of the organization.

I heard the same somewhere (maybe here, too) and that at the end of the season, the Sox will address his desires. May he is in line for a minor league managerial job in the Sox system, if such an opening is available. Otherwise, the Sox may do what they can to help him find a similar job with another organization. I would guess Cora will eventually go that route, too. But Walker and Baines and Coop don't seem to have such aspirations.

I believe Raines managed in low level minors before he joined ozzie's staff. If he does leave the big league club I hope he stays in the organization and that Robin Ventura replaces him on the coaching staff.
