According to multiple reports, former Mariners skipper Eric Wedge has interviewed for the Chicago Cubs’ vacant managerial position. As we all know by now, Wedge left at the conclusion of this past season, despite the Mariners desire to sign him to a new deal.
The Mariners have been interviewing potential replacements for Wedge for the past ten days. Now with the World Series over, a few more candidates are likely to be contacted and a list of finalists put together soon.
Wedge left the Mariners saying he did not agree with the direction of the club. So he likes what the Cubs are doing?
The Cubs haven’t won the World Series in 105 years, haven’t been to it in 68 years and don’t seem likely to get there anytime soon. They finished 2013 with a 66-96 record, last in the NL Central and five games worse than the Mariners.
