Halfway there

By Adam Rubin

Chip Hale completed his second-round managerial interview Wednesday night, joining Bob Melvin in their interview process being complete. Wally Backman and Terry Collins are up Thursday.

"With everybody coming in, I don't really want to say anything," Hale said. "We had a nice conversation -- just baseball stuff. That's all it is. It was just good to be here. I'm glad I got a chance to come and talk to them again."
