Wade updates manager search

Astros general manager Ed Wade and his baseball operations staff will begin interviewing candidates for the full-time manager job on Wednesday at Union Station. The Astros have about 10 names on their initial list of candidates, with interim manager Dave Clark the only candidate the club has disclosed to the public.

Wade said Thursday that Clark would probably the first to interview in what will likely be multiple interviews next week. After the candidate goes through the interview, he will sit down and meet with the media.

Wade got a positive response when he contact several candidates Friday.

“We made contact with quite a few of the prospective candidates and set interview times up for them,” he said. “This is a very attractive opportunity, and everyone I talked to today was very excited and pleased.”


I read that the Cincinnati’s are interested in signing Tony LaRussa and Dave Duncan. Maybe the Astros should look into signing them both, instead?


The Garner bandwagon just went by and I didn’t jump on. There are plenty of great candidates to be had without digging through the “scraps.”


Well I just read that Rudy Jaramillo will not return as batting coach for the Rangers next year. Since Berry has already been retained as the Astros’ batting coach, I wonder if Wade will update the manager search again and add Rudy’s name to the list.
