Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Pirates haven’t interviewed anyone for their managerial vacancy in a week, and that they’re “considering additional interviews.”
We’ve talked about the current candidates — John Gibbons, Dale Sveum, Carlos Tosca, Jeff Banister, Bo Porter and Ken Macha — but Biertempfel thinks Pittsburgh is waiting on Yankees bench coach Tony Pena’s season to be over before making a decision.
Pena certainly has a history with managing seeming lost causes. He was with the Royals, after all. And he actually had one pretty nice season there back in 2003. He also has a history with the Pirates of course, so it might make sense that they at least want to talk to him.
UPDATE: Great stuff from Posnanski on Tony Pena the other day.
