Alderson To Interview Clint Hurdle Next Week
According to the Mike Puma of the New York Post, Sandy Alderson will be contacting Clint Hurdle today to arrange for an interview one day next week.
As we reported yesterday, Jon Heyman of SI.com believes Hurdle is the favorite for the Pittsburgh Pirates’ manager position.
Hurdle had been mentioned quite often as a candidate for the Mets, and he gives Alderson the big league managerial experience David Lennon of Newsday says he will go with when he makes his final decision.
Even with long parade of Mets interviewees, I’d be surprised if it isn’t Melvin or Wakamatsu. MLB managing experience is going to be factor.
Hurdle, a former Met, is currently the batting coach for the Rangers, but is best known for managing the Rockies in 2007 to their first and only World Series.
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Ken Oberkfell is also expected to interview for the Mets manager opening next week in the Dominican Republic.
Obviously, Alderson is racking up some major frequent flyer miles since becoming the Mets GM.
Good luck to all these candidates, and may the best man win.
