    Mackanin in the mix for Astros manager


    Astros peg 10 candidates for manager interviews

    HOUSTON -The Astros will interview 10 candidates over the next week to become the team's next manager, including former skipper Phil Garner.
    Houston fired manager Cecil Cooper on Sept. 21. Third base coach Dave Clark was promoted to interim manager for the final two weeks and the team said Monday that Clark will be the first man interviewed for the full-time position.
    The other candidates include: minor league coordinator Al Pedrique, who became third base coach when Clark was promoted; former Brewers manager Ned Yost, San Diego hitting coach Randy Ready, former Arizona manager Bob Melvin, former Washington manager Manny Acta and current Boston Red Sox coaches Brad Mills and Tim Bogar.
    The Astros have also been granted permission to interview Philadelphia bench coach Pete Mackanin when the Phillies complete postseason play.
    Clark and Pedrique will lead off the interviews on Wednesday. The remaining candidates will be interviewed between Thursday and Monday.

    Good luck to him.

    Good for him. I enjoyed him during the short time we were exposed to him. Not saying he would have led the team to the playoffs every year, but he had a nice approach to the game that seemed to produce while here.

    I think it will be the hitting coach and former MLB player randy ready. Mackinin won't land another managing job whether he deserves it or not. The interview was probably a personal favor or sign of respect.

    Good luck to Mackanin. He did well here and being the bench coach for the defending World Series Champion and possible repeat champ is a good resume.
