NEW YORK (AP) -Mets vice president Tony Bernazard has emerged as a candidate for the Pittsburgh Pirates' general manager job.
The Pirates have received permission from New York to speak with Bernazard about the position, but the former major league infielder wouldn't say whether he already had interviewed.
Bernazard, a former players' association executive, joined the Mets in December 2004 as a special assistant to general manager Omar Minaya and is currently the VP for player development. He hit .262 with 75 homers and 391 RBIs in 10 seasons in the majors.
Dave Littlefield was fired as Pittsburgh's GM on Sept. 7 following six-plus seasons in which the Pirates never lost fewer than 87 games.
