Ned Yost interviews for Houston job on Thursday

Posted:

HOUSTON (AP) -- Ned Yost says he knows how to turn around the Houston Astros.

The former Milwaukee Brewers manager met with the team Thursday, the third candidate to interview to become Houston's skipper next season.

The team says it will interview a total 10 candidates. San Diego Padres hitting coach Randy Ready is scheduled to meet with the team later Thursday. The Astros are looking for a successor to Cecil Cooper, who was fired on Sept. 21.

Yost was fired by Milwaukee in September 2008, after the Brewers lost 11 of 14 games and a 5 1/2-game lead in the wild-card race.
