Cubs interview Rays coach Martinez
October 17, 2013
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the Chicago Cubs were interviewing Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Dave Martinez for their manager's job.
The person spoke Thursday on the condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the search.
The Cubs are looking for a manager to help develop their young players, a big reason they cited for firing Dale Sveum. He was 127-197 over two seasons.
Martinez, who played for the Cubs in the 1980s, has spent the past six seasons as the Rays' bench coach. He could be a good fit with Chicago's management because Tampa Bay relies heavily on statistical analysis.
The Cubs have also met with San Diego bench coach Rick Renteria along with former major league managers Manny Acta and A.J. Hinch.
