After it was over, after the Marlins closed out an unfulfilling season and the grounds crew at Sun Life Stadium began prepping the diamond for the Dolphins' Monday night game, second baseman Dan Uggla handed Edwin Rodriguez a personalized bat on which he signed his name and wrote the following: "You're an amazing manager and an even better man."The season is over, and it remains to be seen whether interim manager Edwin Rodriguez will retain his job, sans interim. While I harbor no ill will toward the man, I would still like to see the Marlins' brain trust be bold and decline to hire a manager for the 2011 season. At the very least, it would be an interesting experiment, turning the Marlins into an MLB Hamsterdam.
