Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria really loves his New York Yankees. It was clear when he wanted Don Mattingly to manage, and it was clear again Tuesday, when it surfaced that a group featuring Derek Jeter is set to purchase the organization, according to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald.
Jeter and the rest of the group could very well explore their own candidates but is expected to retain Mattingly and president of baseball operations Michael Hill, according to Jackson.
The belief, according to the MLB source, is that Bush intends to retain manager Don Mattingly and president of baseball operations Mike Hill barring something unforeseen.
If that ends up being the case, it would likely be ideal for the Marlins. The organization would have the stability it has lacked in recent seasons.
Mattingly has emerged as a valuable clubhouse leader, and Hill has made the best of working with a limited payroll. Now, it seems their roles are secured.
