The Miami Marlins are considering a number of candidates for the managerial position, many of whom have no previous managerial experience. The frontrunner is thought to be former Marlins catcher Mike Redmond, who interviewed last night.
The Miami Marlins have fired manager Ozzie Guillen after just one disappointing 2012 season. The Marlins will begin their search for replacements for Guillen, who still has three years and $7.5 million left in his contract.
The Palm Beach Post reports that Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is not necessarily leaning towards firing manager Ozzie Guillen so much as team executives seem to be pressuring him to do so because of an "unprofessional" environment that he fostered.
The Miami Marlins are searching for new managerial candidates only one year after the team signed Ozzie Guillen for four years. The Marlins may improve in 2013, but it will be regression, not a replacement manager, that will be the cause.
The Miami Marlins were previously rumored to be looking to fire president of baseball operations and architect of the 2012 team Larry Beinfest. Now it seems the Marlins are leaning towards replacing manager Ozzie Guillen instead.
