Pirates | Andy Van Slyke interested
Former Detroit Tigers third base coach Andy Van Slyke informed the Pittsburgh Pirates of his interest in the managerial vacancy, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Chuck Finder reports. "I know that I'm a good coach. The players responded very well to me in Detroit (from 2006-09.) I know the game well enough, I've been on winning and losing teams," Van Slyke said. "But I've got a couple of things going against me for anyone that would hire me: For one, I've never managed in the minor leagues. But there have been very successful (major league) managers who never managed in the minor leagues."
