The St. Louis Cardinals are continuing their search for a new manager this week, and on Wednesday they completed interviews with two key candidates. According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Ryne Sandberg and Jose Oquendo both interviewed for the Cardinals' managerial gig on Wednesday. They're the fifth and sixth candidates to be interviewed for the position.
Sandberg, a Triple-A manager for the Phillies, and Oquendo, the Cardinals' third base coach, join four other known candidates that have already interviewed for the position. Terry Francona, Joe McEwing, Mike Matheny and Chris Malone all completed interviews previously with Cardinals management.
It's unclear if the team is going to schedule interviews for any other candidates, but the team may already be settled on hiring one of the six interviewed candidates.
