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.
