Milwaukee Brewers Inside Pitch 2008-10-27

Milwaukee Brewers Inside Pitch 2008-10-27
The Brewers' managerial search apparently is coming down to three candidates.

General manager Doug Melvin has interviewed former A's manager Ken Macha, former Mets manager Willie Randolph and former Diamondbacks manager Bob Brenly. And Melvin said he'd probably stop right there.

"I don't know if I'm going to interview a fourth or fifth (candidate)," Melvin said. "I think they are three strong candidates.

"I know that they all have been let go by other teams, but they have pretty good track records."

Melvin said he has had indirect contact with other candidates, including Bobby Valentine, now managing in Japan. But none of those other possibilities has evolved to the point of scheduling further interviews.

"There are other candidates, people we can look at," Melvin said. "With our resources, we can weed people out. I'm not sure we'll do a formal interview with anyone else."

Melvin said he was impressed with each of the three former managers he interviewed.

"They're all good candidates," he said. "It's going to be a tough call."

Melvin hopes to name a new manager some time after the World Series.
