Sir Alex Ferguson will help to choose David Moyes's successor
Van Gaal and Ancelotti are the leading candidates
Moyes unhappy at the way his sacking was handled

Sir Alex Ferguson will be asked to take a prominent role in deciding Manchester United's next manager despite an acknowledgement within the club that he was responsible for choosing the wrong man last time.

United are deliberating between Louis van Gaal and Carlo Ancelotti to replace David Moyes after the former Everton manager was sacked in a 7.40am meeting with the club's chief executive, Ed Woodward. Diego Simeone, the Atlético Madrid coach, is also being considered but United are leaning towards a more experienced candidate and their initial discussions, involving Ferguson, have concluded that the job has come too early for Ryan Giggs, even if he exceeds expectations in his four games as interim manager.

Johnny Cueto still owns the Pirates (as long as you throw in a “in the regular season” disclaimer). He dominated them for the second time in one week as the Reds evened the series Tuesday night. Cueto took a shutout into the ninth and eventually lost it, but he did finish off his second straight complete game and has allowed 1 run in 18 innings against the Bucs this year. It was cute to hear the chants again as the game started and the Wild Card highlights rolled on ROOT, but when he’s hurling a gem in the eighth and some were still doing it in a 90% empty stadium…just give it up, man. It was a special one-time thing.

Obviously the offense had a rough evening – something we’ve seen countless times against Cueto. Instead of moping about that (we do that often enough), I’ll happily note that Edinson Volquez was brilliant once again. He went pitch for pitch with Cueto in a legitimate duel for six innings before finally faltering in the seventh, when the Reds pushed two runs across. Again – the control stands out. 71 strikes out of 100 pitches. Only one walk. His ERA through four starts is a tidy 1.93. Pretty incredible.

Andrew McCutchen broke up the shutout in the ninth with an opposite field solo shot – his second in as many days. It was meaningless (other than ruining Cueto’s shutout), but again, that’s a sign he’s heating up. And while there has been some talk about Cutch getting off to a slow start…he’s pretty much erased that: .288 AVG / .414 OBP / .500 SLG (.914 OPS).

The Pirates look to re-gain the advantage in the series on Wednesday night as Charlie Morton takes on Alfredo Simon.
