UPDATE (11/3): St. Louis Post Dispatch writer Joe Strauss reported Wednesday evening that the following candidates (a list of "less than 10" candidates) would be interviewed by the Cardinals on Thursday: Terry Francona, Jose Oquendo, Ryne Sandberg (the team got permission from the Phillies to interview Sandberg), Chris Maloney, Mike Matheny, and Joe McEwing.

GM John Mozeliak would only confirm that the interview process would begin today, but it is believed the team hopes to have a new manager in place within the next ten days.

Strauss cited "multiple sources" who told him that the team had not sought permission to interview Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon. Maddon is under contract for next season and is expected to sign an extension before the start of spring training.   

ORIGINAL: With Tony La Russa's retirement now official, Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak is faced with the arduous task of finding his replacement. Fortunately, Mozeliak has known of La Russa's plans since August, meaning that he has had time to formulate a list of suitable candidates.

Here are 10 candidates to replace No. 10 in the Cardinals' dugout.
