According to various reports out of New York, Terry Collins, Bob Melvin, Chip Hale and Clint Hurdle are the apparent finalists to become manager of the Mets. Ken Oberkfell, however, is scheduled for an interview his weekend and Jose Oquendo could get a look.
None of the report indicate good news for Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale, who interviewed earlier his week with new GM Sandy Alderson.
Hale was a finalist in Toronto before John Farrell was hired. Perhaps another year as Terry Francona’s bench coach will put him over the top.
