Oquendo interview will go on


Despite the family tragedy involving the death of John Alderson, the interview with Jose Oquendo remains scheduled for Monday in Orlando, the site of the GM meetings. Paul DePodesta and John Ricco will be among the other executives in town.

Second-round interviews, which originally might have been scheduled for later in the week in Orlando, now may take place in New York at a later date.

ESPNNewYork.com has reported that Terry Collins is the clear frontrunner for the manager gig, with Bob Melvin another expected callback and the potential bench coach if Collins is appointed skipper.
