Macha off Pirates' radar

Pirates/MLB Videos

Saturday, Oct. 23, 2010

The Pirates scratched former Milwaukee Brewers manager Ken Macha off the list of candidates to fill their opening.

Macha, a Monroeville native and Pitt product, was told by general manager Neal Huntington that he no longer is under consideration for the job.

That leaves four candidates — Dale Sveum, Bo Porter, Jeff Banister and Carlos Tosca — who have interviewed and remain under consideration. Huntington said he is considering other candidates, an indication he might be waiting until the league championship series to end to schedule more interviews.
