Report: Cubs look to interview Melvin

Bob Melvin might get to follow in Lou Piniella's footsteps for a second time.

The Cubs have added the former Diamondbacks and Mariners manager to their list of managerial candidates, according to a report by 

The report says the Cubs have asked the Mets, for whom Melvin works as a scout (and doesn't look too excited by the work, from the looks of this picture), for permission to interview him.

Melvin has been mentioned as a top candidate to manage the Mets should they fire Jerry Manuel.

Melvin, a former journeyman catcher, went 156-158 with Seattle from 2003-04 and 337-340 in Arizona from 2005-09. The Diamondbacks fired him after 29 games last season.

Particlularly in temperament, the even-keeled and decidedly new-school Melvin would represent a significant departure from Piniella -- just as he was in Seattle, where he was the choice after Piniella ended a 10-year run.
Other known Cubs candidates include Eric Wedge, Ryne Sandberg, Fredi Gonzalez and interim manager Mike Quade.
