10/25 Cubs to interview Wedge
The Cubs plan on adding former Mariners and Indians manager Eric Wedge to the list of candidates. Sources confirmed the Cubs will talk to Wedge, 45, next week about the vacant manager’s job. Wedge managed the Indians from 2003-09, and compiled a 561-573 record, and was 213-273 with the Mariners from 2011-13.
The Cubs have already talked to Manny Acta, Dave Martinez, A.J. Hinch and Rick Renteria about the manager’s job.
On Friday, there were reports the Nationals were going to hire Matt Williams as their next manager. The Reds did not take much time in promoting pitching coach Bryan Price to manager, replacing Dusty Baker.
The Cubs, Mariners and Tigers are currently in the market for a new manager.
