Manager "short list" was 45, now getting closer

Jeff Luhnow said that the Astros began with a managerial candidate pool of 45, interviewed nine candidates, and that the search is drawing to a close.

"We are hoping to move forward and we're excited, and hopefully we get to a successful conclusion relatively soon."

Word from a source is that Dave Martinez, Bo Porter, and Tim Bogar are the favorites. And now that we know how an injured member of the St. Louis Cardinals feels about the search, that's all you really need to know.
