Marlins Manager Quits

Florida Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez unexpectedly called it quits today, resigning after less than one season with the club. According to sources, the Marlins would not have made a change if Rodriguez had not resigned. Here is more from the AP and espn.com.

Bench coach Brandon Hyde managed the Marlins against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday in a 2-1 defeat as Florida lost its 10th straight game. The club will begin a search for an interim manager.

“I can’t say enough about the effort that this staff and these players have put into this season,” Rodriguez said in a statement released by the team. “I could tell that they continued to give 100 percent effort each and every day on the field. I wish this organization and players nothing but success in their futures.”

It’s amazing how quickly things went South for the Marlins. They entered the month of June nine games above .500, and have been a dismal 1-18 since. The worse news for Marlins fans is that they have nine more games this month. It could get even uglier.

Florida ace Josh Johnson and all-star shorstop Hanley Ramirez have been on the DL for most of the month. As good as Johnson and Ramirez are, their absence is a small part of the Marlins’ overall struggles.
