Buffalo Baseball Hall of Famer Torey Lovullo had his official interview with the Indians today for the manager's post and then met the Cleveland media to discuss his candidacy. Lovullo is banking on his familiarity with the organization as one of his major attributes.
"When I walked out of there, I was excited," Lovullo said of the interview. "For the first time really with this group, I got a chance to express myself and some of my philosophies."
Lovullo is in a quartet of candidates that includes Manny Acta, Bobby Valentine and Don Mattingly for the post to replace Eric Wedge. Angels bench coach Ron Roenicke has just climbed into the mix and so may ex-Rockies manager Clint Hurdle.
