Rosenthal: Fredi moving closer to hot seat

If the Marlins do not start playing more consistently, manager Fredi Gonzalez will be on the hot seat. Florida is one win below .500, which probably does not strike most as a failure considering their modest $47.4MM. However, as Rosenthal put it, owner Jeffrey Loria is not exactly "Mr. Patient". At the start of Spring Training, Loria said that the team had all the ammunition needed to make the postseason.

Nothing we already didn't know but some confirmation from a source like KR never hurt. Call me stupid but I'm almost hoping we lose more now.

I know Fredi is not the best bull pen manager but with what we have in our pen right now no manager could make look good.

 

Id say I feel bad for Fredi if he got the boot but I know he's got a nice job in the ATL waiting for him next year if he wants it.

I will be very disappointed if they let Fredi go, who will then terrorize us with the Braves for years and years.

 

 

It doesn't matter, he's leaving us after this year no matter what for the Atlanta job.

Marlins have him under contract for 2011. If Atlanta wants him, they have to trade for him.

Fredi for Heyward straight up.

as I've said a few times here already: I wouldn't be opposed to firing fredi, for the simple reason that I think a new manager can really spark the team a little more, and improve consistency. I think we all know most of the players have the talent and capability of being really good.

Bullpen: "Pardon?"

 

 

 

 

Actually I do agree with Loria that we should be in the running for the playoffs though. If the starting pitching isn't good enough there's not much Freddie can do about it unfortunately.

Because the Braves will likely be good for years and years. I'm not sure if he's saying because of Fredi or not, but I think the Braves are very well set up long term

 

 

 

Ok, but like you said, I'm sure it won't be because of the manager. It never is, really, regardless of the manager. I could care less if we lose Fredi Gonzalez to the Braves. Same goes for every manager. They're all replaceable, and I guarantee a lot of people on this board could manage the current Marlins team, and put up a similar record. It's not a big deal, at all.

I can't believe I agree with Loria. We have most of the tools we need to be contenders. The Fish are easily one of the top 7 teams in the National League and should contend for the post season.

 

 

 

 

Thing is, we need to be in the top 4 teams in the NL.

 

Other than his sometimes questionable bullpen management, my most pressing issue with Fredi of late has been his reluctance to shake up the top of the order given Coghlan and more recently Maybin's struggles. Granted, we don't have many good options for up there, but some sort of change would be nice to provide a spark and get things going.
