Albert Belle Wants an Interview

From Hoynes' notes article

One more candidate: Former Tribe slugger Albert Belle said he threw his hat into the ring with an email to President Mark Shapiro asking for a managerial interview.

"I'm just like Robin Ventura and Mike Matheny were last year," said Belle with a laugh, referring to the White Sox and Cardinals bosses. "I'm sitting on my couch waiting for my phone to ring."

Shapiro, of course, has not released any information about Belle being interviewed. It is highly unlikely that Belle would be hired to manage the Indians given his history of both on the field and off the field incidents (as well as his lack of coaching experience), but it might be fun to imagine the sparks flying the first time Joe West makes a bad call that goes against the Tribe.
