Padres bench coach Rick Renteria interviewed for the Cubs manager job and as of last week he was being called the front-runner to land the gig by Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

However, today Greg Johns of MLB.com reports that Renteria also interviewed earlier this week to replace Eric Wedge as Mariners manager.

It’s hard to imagine someone taking the Mariners job over the Cubs job at this point, although obviously a little extra money thrown around by either team could sway things quite a bit.

But yeah: Rick Renteria, hot commodity.

    If I’m interviewing to get a promotion, I don’t wait for some sportswriter’s opinion that I am a frontrunner. I take all the interviews I can get. I can choose later, assuming I get an offer. Job Search Rule 1.

    That picture makes it seems like Rick was explaining something and then held up: “Wait, phone call, might be another interview request.”

      You are on a roll today, man. Dinner on me next time you are in Houston.

    They should go after Sandburg, or Maddox. Hell, even Grace or Santo would be good.

      OK…so, it’s Sandberg and Maddux. Also, Ron Santo has been dead for several years now.

    I believe the Mariners are going to do a “Manager for a Day” promotion. Each of their 162 remaining fans will get to be manager for one game.
