The beat guys report that Murrysville's Ken Macha is no longer under consideration for the Bucco manager's job. That's no big surprise; he was an unexpected addition to the list to start with.
Eric Wedge and John Gibbons are out of the running, having landed gigs. That leaves Jeff Banister, Bo Porter, Dale Sveum and Carlos Tosca as candidates interviewed.
Porter is thought to be the favorite for the Florida Marlins' skipper position, although in an interesting twist, the Fish are supposed to be waiting for a chance to interview Tony Pena before reaching a final decision.
We'll see who gets added to the interview list now that the playoff coaches are becoming available. As we've said, there's no rush to fill the job.
