Melvin next up for Cubs
Posted on: October 2, 2010 12:29 pm
The Cubs are in Houston, and so is Bob Melvin, according to the Daily Herald of Arlington, Illinois.
That would indicate that Melvin is having his first face-to-face discussions with the Cubs about their managerial position, after previously talking with them on the phone. He'd be the third person known to be interviewed by the Cubs, along with former Indians manager Eric Wedge and Cubs legend/Triple-A manager Ryne Sandberg. The Cubs also will interview interim manager Mike Quade.
Melvin, who has been working in the scouting department for the Mets, is a former manager of the Mariners and Diamondbacks. He's also thought to be a candidate for the Mets job after Jerry Manuel is presumably fired.
