Oquiendo still in hunt for M's manager

... Below is a link to one of the more detailed articles related to the potential hiring of the Cards' third base coach, Jose Oquendo, as manager of the Seattle Mariners. The Mariners have interview a handful of selected candidates for the position.

First round wraps up; what next? Tacoma, WA: "All seven of the initial candidates to manage the Seattle Mariners have now been interviewed, and general manager Jack Zduriencik summed up the search process Thursday. He could bring two or three of them back for second interviews and might add a name or two to the search.

“I want to back away for a day, gather my thoughts,” Zduriencik said. “I’ll call people who know these guys. I want information from people I trust. This is an important decision."
