Bobby Valentine didn't like the process

Bobby Valentine was none too impressed with the way the front office handles things.  Go figure.  When dealing with Jeffrey Loria and David Samson, really what did you expect?

Bobby Valentine thought he would be managing the Marlins by now. Instead, he gave them a parting shot on national television after being dropped from their search.

"If this is a major-league process, I hope I'm never in the process again,' Valentine said on ESPN's Baseball Tonight. "It's very disturbing, confusing and it was insulting at times, but it's over.'

Trust me Bobby, it is best you learn how things work with the higher ups ahead of time.  And you were the favorite.  Nothing about being or becoming a "permanent"  Marlins manager is easy.  There are way too many bosses.  And some of them are... what is polite way to say this... borderline insane.  

Honestly, Bobby Valentine was never a fit; he actually has an ego that shines through and can't keep his mouth shut.  Nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't fit the bill of what the Marlins are looking for.  But therein lies the problem. Who in their right mind--and I am speaking of persons who have managerial experience--would want this job?
