11/16 Cubs follow up with managerial candidates
Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said he and Theo Epstein have touched base with each of the managerial candidates on Wednesday for follow up questions. They also met Tuesday night with Dale Sveum in Milwaukee. Sveum was in town to talk to the Red Sox. With Terry Francona withdrawing from consideration, the Cubs’ list now is Sveum, the Brewers hitting coach; Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux; Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin; Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr.; and Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale.
Hoyer and Epstein have spent most of Wednesday in MLB meetings and in talks with agents and teams.
