The Cardinals will interview Terry Francona today

WEEI reports that Terry Francona will interview for the Cardinals’ managerial job today. The club wants to have someone in place next week.

From afar Francona seems like such a good fit. He’s been expected to win-now for most of the past decade, so going to a win-now job — this one without clubhouse crankiness like he had in Boston — seems natural.  The only x-factor is if left Boston just because that situation was deteriorating for him or, instead, if he generally is burned out right now.

As a person who has been burned out before, I can attest that it is really hard to hide that, even in a job interview, so I guess St. Louis will figure that out.
