07:19 AM ET 10.28 | While the World Series rolls on in St. Louis, the AL's runner-ups are looking for a manager. The Tigers plan to interview Padres executive Brad Ausmus and Padres bench coach Rick Renteria for their managerial opening, bringing to four the known candidates for the coveted job to replace legendary manager Jim Leyland, sources familiar with the situation told CBSSports.com. The Tigers previously have interviewed Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach plus their own hitting coach Lloyd McClendon, who also talked with the Mariners. Ausmus, who interviewed for the Nationals job that went to Matt Williams, is expected to meet this week with Tigers people. Ausmus has no major-league managing or coaching experience but was an 18-year major-league player as a catcher for a few teams, including the Tigers.

Didn't Diane Sawyer have a huge crush on Ausmus when he was a player?
I wonder if he ever went there?

QUOTE(#1):

I like Ausmus for the job. I figure the Tigers will go with McClendon, who is probably okay, and is probably the favorite of the players.

I like Sandy Alomar, but I'm sure that won't happen.
