Dave Clark's name is getting thrown around as a possible replacement for the dearly departed John Russell in Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Bob Smizik:
There is one ex-Pirate who deserves consideration but not because he once played and coached here. That would be Dave Clark, the third-base coach of the Houston Astros. He has minor-league managerial experience and served as interim manager of the Astros at the end of the 2009 season.
Clark would probably be interested and should be interviewed.
And the PPG's Chuck Finder:
Clark, like Sveum a fixture as a Pirates player and in the past decade as a coach, expressed interest in the Pirates opening.
Clark, on the Pirates:
"They're fun to watch. They're not a finished product yet, but you can see the direction they're going. They got some real good, young players over there. I tell you what, I think the future is going to be pretty bright."
