Latest On Cardinals’ Managerial Search

The Cardinals will interview fewer than ten candidates for their managerial opening and they’re hoping for resolution within ten days, according to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Here are the details on who will be competing with Ryne Sandberg for the position…

  • Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona, Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo, Triple-A Memphis manager Chris Maloney, former Cardinals catcher Mike Matheny and White Sox coach Joe McEwing are candidates for the position, Strauss reports.
  • The Cardinals haven’t requested permission to interview Rays manager Joe Maddon or bench coach Dave Martinez, according to Strauss.
  • The interviews for Tony La Russa’s successor begin on Thursday.

Matheny’s in on this? Damn, he’s awesome and all, but has he been coaching at all since he retired? I don’t think it would be a great idea to take someone in who doesn’t have any experience whatsoever. Francona is a interesting option as well, but ultimately, the job will probably go to Oquendo.

Getting Maddon would be freaking awesome, but doubt that will happen!
