Former Miami Marlins catcher Mike Redmond reportedly has the inside track on the team's managerial job. Redmond, 41, who has managed the last two seasons for the Class A Dunedin (Fla.) Blue Jays, is the leading candidate, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Wednesday, citing an industry source. "I think it will be Redmond," the source said in a text message. Redmond was interviewing Wednesday night for the job that became vacant last week when the Marlins fired manager Ozzie Guillen after one season. Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus and Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar, also former major league catchers, are considered the other top candidates. The Sun-Sentinel reported Redmond also is expected to interview for the Toronto Blue Jays job, which opened this week when manager John Farrell was traded to the Boston Red Sox.

Free agent preview: Miami Marlins

After going crazy in the free agent market last offseason, the Miami Marlins are going to be taking a bit of a different approach this offseason. Heath Bell has already been banished from Miami, and he joined Hanley Ramirez, who was traded in July, in the NL West. Anibal Sanchez was also dealt in July, and is now playing in the World Series. But Miami still has some holes, and it...

Jeffrey Loria's Ineptitude Squarely to Blame for Marlins' Performance, Organizational Failures

In 1968, 34 years before he would become the owner of the Florida (now Miami) Marlins, Jeffrey H. Loria published his second book -- What's it All About, Charlie Brown? The book is a philosophical look at life through the lens of the Charles Schultz comic strip, which is just too appropriate considering that the businessman and art collector has turned the organization into a...

The city of Miami, and fans of the Marlins, are better off without obnoxious blowhard Ozzie Guillén

After one pathetic year at the helm, the Miami Marlins wisely terminated controversial manager Ozzie Guillén earlier this afternoon. The 48-year-old Guillén, who was suspended five games without pay in April for praising Fidel Castro, the former First Secretary of … Continue reading →

Marlins fire Ozzie Guillen

We probably should have seen this one coming, but now, it's official: Ozzie Guillen is out as Marlins manager after just one season. Firing him nearly three weeks after the season ended seems like a bit of a low blow by Miami, with many major league coaching vacancies already filled. That also doesn't bode well for Miami's search for a replacement, as a lot of the sexiest...

Miami Marlins Fire Ozzie Guillen

My colleague Rob Kelley has been on the record as saying that if the Miami Marlins fire Ozzie Guillen it will be a sign that they are a bush league organization. I can certainly understand the impulse and today the Marlins became the bush league organization in his and many others eyes. That is because the Marlins announced that they have fired Ozzie Guillen one year into his four...

Guillen out as Marlins manager after one season

Ozzie Guillen lasted just one season with the Miami Marlins.

BREAKING: Miami Marlins dismiss manager Ozzie Guillen after one season

The Marlins have made their decision. They have fired manager Ozzie Guillen.   Guillen served as Marlins manager for one season, leading the team to the fourth-worst finish in franchise history, a 69-93 record.
