Rick Renteria has interviewed with the Cubs and Mariners


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.
