Here's the latest on the managerial searches in New York and Pittsburgh..

Mets

Jose Oquendo will be the last of the first round interviews when he meets with the Mets on Monday, tweets Jon Heyman of SI.  The second round of interviews, he says, could begin this week in Orlando.

Meanwhile, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com (via Twitter) keeps hearing that Terry Collins is the most likely to land the job.  We learned yesterday that Collins, Clint Hurdle, and Bob Melvin are all expected to receive second interviews.

Speaking of Hurdle, the Pirates have ramped up their efforts to land him, writes Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com.  Along with in-house candidate Jeff Banister, Hurdle is believed to be one of the finalists for the job.
