MLB rumors: Mets will interview at least three managerial candidates in person

While the postseason swirls about us, the New York Mets are working to find a dugout replacement for ousted manager Mickey Callaway.

That search may be reaching the next stage, as three candidates will reportedly interview in person with the Mets for their vacancy. Former Yankees and Marlins manager Joe Girardi will certainly be granted a sit-down interview, Jon Heyman reports. Girardi, who soon turns 55, is a former MLB catcher who managed the Yankees 10 seasons and led them to the World Series title in 2009. Prior to that, Girardi spent one season as manager of the Marlins. In addition to plenty of experience in the dugout and with the New York media, Girardi is also a tactically adept manager. All three points distinguish him from Callaway.

How many people did they interview on Skype, and will there be a round of interviews after these interviews?

Bell seems like kind of a weird choice, given that he’s front office rather than field staff.

Derek Bell? Please tell me you're talking about Derek Bell.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic adds two more names to the in-person interview list: former Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran and current Diamondbacks farm director Mike Bell.

Girardi seems like a no brainer here. I'd pounce before the Cubs have a shot at him.

Not Zoom? Skype? In-person, how 20th century.

The nonsense begins. Because what this team needs as manager is another coach from an AL Central playoff loser.
