NEW YORK (AP) -Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was due in Tampa, Fla., on Monday to start interviewing candidates to replace Joe Torre as manager.
Former Florida Marlins manager Joe Girardi, Yankees bench coach Don Mattingly and New York first base coach Tony Pena were the first three candidates invited to interview for the job, which opened last Thursday when Torre refused the Yankees' offer of a $5 million, one-year contract.
Hank Steinbrenner, a son of owner George Steinbrenner, said five or six candidates will be interviewed and that a decision isn't likely until after the World Series.
