Marlins Assistant General Manager and Cincinnati native Michael Hill turned down a chance to interview for the Reds' vacant general manager job. Monday Hill said the Reds had sought permission to speak with him, but he told them he was happy in his current post and looked forward to building another championship club with the Marlins.

While he is not among the Reds' initial list of seven candidates, many expect the Marlins' vice president of player personnel, Dan Jennings, to interview for the position. The Marlins would not reveal whether the Reds have sought permission to speak with him.
