TERRY FRANCONA MEETS WITH ST. LOUIS
Thu, 10 Nov 2011 10:34 AM EST

The former manager of the Boston Red Sox, Terry Francona, has interviewed with the St. Louis Cardinals as a candidate to lead them as their manager opening. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made. The interview took place in Cincinnati, where Cardinals President Bill DeWitt Jr. lives. Basketball lines

Francona led the Red Sox for eight seasons and left after they squandered a nine-game they had in September with what they got out of hand the wild card to the playoffs in the American League. St. Louis seeks a replacement for Tony La Russa, who retired two days after winning his second World Series in 16 seasons with the Cardinals. They are referred to more interviews, apparently with the Puerto Rican coach Jose Oquendo in the anteroom and former Hall of Fame second baseman and Ryan Sandberg, who led the branch of the Phillies’ Triple-A last season.

Previously, San Luis interviewed Mike Matheny, Joe McEwing and Chris Maloney. Matheny and Maloney have ties to the organization, McEwing played in St. Louis. Basketball betting lines

Oquendo, 48 year-old, was the third base coach over the past 12 years. He played his last 10 seasons in the majors with the Cardinals between 1986 and 1995, when he dubbed the “Secret Weapon” for his versatility.

San Luis has received permission from the Phillies to talk to Sandberg, who was ruled to lead the Cubs, a team that played from 1982 to 1997.

After leaving the Red Sox, there were reports that the players drank beer and ate fast food fried chicken in the clubhouse during the meetings, rather than encourage their peers from the cave. The press reported that the club had concerns about the possibility that Francona was “decentralized”, living in a hotel while separated from his wife, and there were even rumors that he took painkillers to cope with a series of surgeries of the knee. Francona said that his personal problems did not affect his performance.

Boston ended a streak of 86 years without winning the World Series in 2004, the first with Francona, when the Red Sox swept the Cardinals in the Fall Classic. Francona also led the Red Sox sweep Colorado in the 2007 World Series. Francona is the second winningest manager in the history of the Red Sox, with a 744-552 record. In the World Series, his record is 8-0.

Both Francona and general manager of the Cardinals, John Mozeliak, responded to the requests required to give statements. Francona is the only one of the six listed candidates with prior major-league managerial experience. Undoubtedly, the Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak has a long list of other options to browse through, including another Terry.

Terry Pendleton, who played for the Cardinals from 1984 to 1990, has served as hitting coach and third base coach for the Braves, patiently waiting his turn to management.

Among veteran managers in the job search is Jim Riggleman, who had a young team of the Washington Nationals on the brink of success before his surprising and sudden departure in mid-season. Riggleman’s 1998 Cubs went 90-73 before losing to the Braves in the NLDS.
