Yesterday we learned that Ken Macha was out of the running for the vacant Pittsburgh Pirates manager position. Jennifer Langosch reports today that Dale Sveum is also out of the running.
The Pirates are down to three remaining candidates of the group of seven they initially interviewed. Those candidates are Carlos Tosca, Bo Porter, and Jeff Banister. There’s also the chance that they could interview people from eliminated playoff teams, as Neal Huntington has already said they could expand the search. Tony Pena seems to be the popular choice, and could be a candidate now that the Yankees are eliminated.
The last person to be interviewed was Tosca, last Thursday.
