Overview: The Marlins fired manager Fredi Gonzalez and two other coaches on Wednesday. Saturday, first base coach Dave Collins resigned. As of Sunday evening, the team still has no permanent manager. Oh yeah, the team also took just two of three from the Orioles, and were swept by the Padres.
Positives: Not applicable
Negatives: A lot. The team has no permanent manager. Bobby Valentine, obviously viewed as the successor by illustrious Mr. Loria is apparently no longer a candidate. They are a season low five games under .500% and 8.5 games behind first place Atlanta.
Line of the Week: 0 - Managers hired
Highlight of the Week: It's not too often you see Emilio Bonifacio get a base hit AND an RBI.
Looking Ahead: The marlins hit the
road air to Puerto Rico to play three against the Mets. Next weekend they play three in Atlanta.
