Eric Wedge had a great interview in Baltimore and appears to have a real shot at getting that job. Wedge managed the Cleveland Indians for seven years, winning the 2007 AL Central title, but was fired after last season. The Orioles are still searching for a successor to Dave Trembley, whom they fired earlier this month. Juan Samuel is currently Baltimore's interim manager.

Meanwhile, Bo Porter, the Diamondbacks third base coach, is said to be a strong candidate to become the manager of the Marlins, now that Florida has turned away from Bobby Valentine. Interim Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez is in the mix as well but Porter is believed to have a decent shot. Porter is in his first year in Arizona after spending the previous five seasons in Florida. He was the Marlins' third base coach from 2007-09 and prior to that, he spent one year managing the Marlins' Single-A team at Jamestown.
