Clint Hurdle is reportedly the front-runner for the Pirates' managerial job, but he may want to hold out accepting that post until he talks to the Mets.
According to Mike Puma of the New York Post (via Twitter ), Mets general manager Sandy Alderson will contact Hurdle today and hope to interview him next week.
The Mets are interviewing internal candidates this weekend in California and expect to interview external candidates next week in New York.
On Thursday, Bob Melvin and Dave Jauss met Alderson in New York for interviews.
