Terry Collins, Clint Hurdle, and Bob Melvin emerge as top candidates in Mets’ manager search


Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that “Terry Collins, Clint Hurdle, and Bob Melvin have emerged as leading candidates in the Mets’ search for a manager.”

However, new general manager Sandy Alderson apparently hasn’t officially trimmed his list to three names, as Rubin adds that “a potential fourth candidate for a callback is current third base coach Chip Hale” and “one potential additional interviewee is ex-Met Jose Oquendo.”

In other words, they probably still aren’t very close to deciding on a new manager. It does suggest that DeMarlo Hale, Dave Jauss, Don Wakamatsu, and Wally Backman are no longer serious candidates for the job.
