The Miami Marlins went out to make a big splash last season in getting overpriced players and a manager who could overshadow everything that may go wrong with the team being able to gel. The Ozzie Guillen choice for manager did not disappoint many as we seen all that he could do while he was the manager of the CHISOX, but the Marlins did not come close to achieving the goals they had set for themselves. So they got rig of Hanley Ramirez their prized SS till signing Jose Reyes and fire Guillen at the end of the season which no one can really blame the Marlins from doing. So this year they went in another direction, in hiring former player Mike Redmond, who managed in the Toronto BlueJays' farm system last season.

He is not going to run his mouth and give the media tons of things to talk and write about all year long, but he will do odd things to get the team to work together and forget want may be causing a playing slump. An example he took batting practice in an indoor cage naked for several days in a row when his team was in a slump. Players claim to love him and respect him, now that is the minors, lets see what happens in the Big leagues. he cannot do much worse then Ozzie so we should see the Marlins move up in the standing next season, with the addition of a few other players.

Mike did play for the Florida Marlins when they won the World Series in 2003. From 1998-04 he played for the Marlins and the Twins from 2005-09 and last for the Indians in 2010.
