Chicago Cubs Manager Search: Sandy Alomar Jr. To Interview With Cubs This Week

The Cubs and Red Sox are after the same guy again; this time it's Cleveland Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. Alomar:

Sources told ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine Tuesday that Cleveland Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. will interview with the Cubs later this week. He is scheduled to be interviewed by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The Cubs are also set to meet with Mike Maddux on Wednesday. Alomar would be the third prospective manager that both the Cubs and Red Sox have interviewed; both clubs already have interviewed Philadelphia Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin and Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum.

Alomar is familiar with Chicago, just not the north side of it. He spent 3+ seasons playing for the White Sox during his career.
