The Cleveland Indians Should Target These Chief Managerial Candidates

With Eric Wedge's ousting in Cleveland, Mark Shapiro has to use this October and find himself a new skipper.

Shapiro plans to have a replacement in by the end of the World Series, but he's going to formulate a list of about 10 candidates to interview over the phone. From there, he'll narrow it down to a few candidates, make them public and then pick from there.

It would behoove Shapiro follow up on his wishes of hiring someone that possess a lot of the qualities Eric Wedge did. He wants someone that won't conform to his opinions every time out, like Wedge did, but someone he can get to buy into the ideals of the Cleveland Indians organization, like Wedge did.

He also is being pressured to hire someone with some major league experience. Someone who will command respect immediately from the young players and veterans like Grady Sizemore on the team. Eric Wedge's shortcomings were largely debated, but one thing that beefed a lot of people when he was hired was his lack of major league experience.

With that, I've put together a list of 10 candidates that Mark Shapiro will no doubt at least think about. Whether they are on his final list to contact and pursue is another story.
