    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    And meet your 2011 Atlanta Braves manager. I want some of what FLA's front office is smoking.

    The Marlins sure do seem to enjoy playing manager roulette.

    I wonder how much of his firing was due to the Ramirez situation earlier this season?

    I agree there's a good chance he's manager in Atlanta next year. We'll know soon b/c if so he'll be brought in as a special advisor this year.

    Oh yeah. Is that when Fredi took the pacifier out of Hanley's mouth and made him sit in timeout?

    Man, I respect Fredi Gonzalez as a MLB manager for that. If that played a major part in his dismissal, then shame on the bafoons running the Marlins baseball club.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Nah, he was on the hot seat prior, this was telegraphed before the incident.
