MARLINS FIRE MANAGER
After a rough start to the 2015 season (16-22) the Marlins have fired Manager MIKE REDMOND. The Marlins named General Manager DAN JENNINGS as the replacement manager, but its not clear at this time if that is a permanent replacement or just a stop gap measure til a new Manager is hired. Ironically Jennings will be the third Manager on the Marlins current payroll. They are still paying Ozzie Guillan, Mike Redmond and now Dan Jennings for contracts in the 2015 season.
In 2003, in an eerily similar start, the Marlins fired Manager Jeff Torborg after starting the season at 16-22. They then hired former GM Jack McKeon who went on to manage the Marlins to a 2003 World Series Title. Sounds like they are sticking to that playbook in 2015.
