Terry Collins, Clint Hurdle and Bob Melvin are the Mets' "leading candidates" for their open managerial position, ESPNNewYork.com's Adam Rubin reports .
Rubin says current third-base coach Chip Hale could be called back for another interview, while Cardinals third-base coach Jose Oquendo could get an interview.
Hurdle has also interviewed for the still-vacant Pirates job, and appears to be the favorite there.
The Mets have already interviewed Dave Jauss, Don Wakamatsu, DeMarlo Hale and Wally Backman.
