Former Phillies manager Larry Bowa will be interviewed for the vacant Marlins manager's post for the second time in the next few days. But, he is not the only candidate on Miami's radar at the moment.

The team is primarily looking for experience from their next skipper, and they have made it clear that they hold current Dodgers manager Don Mattingly in very high regard.

Hiring a new manager is just the first step in resolving the leadership issues that started to become a problem for the Marlins over the course of the season.

The results from ESPN's Ultimate Standings reveal that sports fans rated the Miami Marlins to have second-worst ownership and coaching out of all 122 professional American sports teams. From this, it is apparent that things have to change in Little Havana.

Around the League

Former Marlin Sam Dyson gave up the decisive three-run homer to Jose Bautista that sent the Blue Jays to the ALCS for the first time since 1993.

The bat flip while the ball was flying through the air was something to be admired.

Johnny Cueto returned to form to push the Royals past the Astros to set up a showdown with the Blue Jays after coming out on top of the winner-takes-all game five.

Kyle Schwarber's home run ball that landed on top of the outfield scoreboard at Wrigley is staying put, at least for the foreseeable future.
