White Sox 3B coach McEwing to interview with Cardinals

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Joe McEwing, who was named the White Sox third-base coach on Monday, will interview for the St. Louis Cardinals managerial job, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

A popular Cardinals player, McEwing was a favorite of retired manager Tony La Russa, so much so that LaRussa asked the infielder for an autographed pair of spikes after he was traded to the Mets in 1999. McEwing has climbed the coaching and managing ranks in the Sox system. He coached the Sox AAA Nashville team this past season.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak plans to interview Ryne Sandberg, Terry Francona, Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo, Cardinals AAA Memphis manager Chris Maloney, Cardinals minor league instructor Mike Matheny and McEwing.
