ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine has interest in Cubs job

CHICAGO (AP) -- Count Bobby Valentine among those who would like to manage the Chicago Cubs.

The ESPN analyst and former New York Mets manager says he's interested in taking over for the retiring Lou Piniella after this season.

Valentine, who led the Mets to the pennant in 2000 and also managed the Texas Rangers, calls the Cubs job "one of the most coveted positions in all of sports" and adds "anybody who thinks of himself as a manager would love to be considered as one of the people who might take his place."

Valentine spoke before Sunday's game between the Cubs and Cardinals.
