Just so you know, it's unlikely Mills will end up in Boston

The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham doesn't see Brad Mills in Boston, should the axe fall on Mills today (or this week, but honestly, if it's going to happen, it's probably going to be today).

Although Mills was widely respected during his five years as Terry Francona's bench coach, hiring somebody so closely aligned to the former manager wouldn't seem to make much sense. The Red Sox didn't even give DeMarlo Hale a courtesy interview.

You also have to wonder whether Mills would be interested in replacing his best friend after what was an ugly ending to his days in Boston.
