Former Zag Mike Redmond's firing by The Marlins' Jeffrey Loria is another example of the adage that "you can't fire the team, so you fire the manager." However, Redmond got a 2 year contract extension after last season, so he will be getting paid for doing nothing. Amazing how he got so bad only months after getting the extension?

I think Mike Redmond gets two big last laughs. He's probably also laughing at who the Marlins hired to replace him. Dan Jennings didn't manage beyond high school and didn't really have a playing career either. The Marlins have lost their first three games under Jennings and one doesn't anticipate a great renaissance in South Florida anytime soon. So, the improvement the Marlins showed during Redmond's tenure will be what he's remembered for, especially as things melt down after his tenure.
