The Pirates interviewed two managerial candidates today, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
One was organization man Jeff Banister, who has been with the Pirates for 25 years and has managed for the club at several low-minor destinations through the years.
The other was Monroeville's Ken Macha of Oakland and Milwaukee fame. The veteran manager is 525-447 between stops with the A's and Brewers. Macha also made his Major League debut with the Pirates in 1974 and played for a few Bucco teams in the '70s.
