Randolph not on Astros' interview list

The Houston Astros are once again conducting their managerial search in the light of day and released a list of candidates on Monday afternoon. Former Brewers managers Ned Yost and Phil Garner are on it, but current bench coach Willie Randolph, who wants to get back into managing, is not.

The Astros will interview their candidates, then make him available to the press afterward. Here’s the schedule:

Wednesday, October 14: 10 a.m.-Dave Clark; 1:30 p.m.-Al Pedrique
Thursday, October 15: 10 a.m.-Ned Yost; 1:30 p.m.-Randy Ready
Friday, October 16: 10 a.m.-Bob Melvin; 1:30 p.m.-Manny Acta
Saturday, October 17: 10 a.m.-Phil Garner
Monday, October 19: 10 a.m.-Brad Mills; 1:30 p.m.-Tim Bogar

Lots of Brewers ties there. Besides former Milwaukee managers Garner and Yost, Randy Ready began his playing career with the Brewers and Melvin was once the team’s bench coach under Garner. Melvin was one of the Brewers’ managerial candidates before the team hired Yost in Fall 2002.
