    Alcantara sucks. Doesn't deserve any CY Young votes

    The only team benefitting from the walls being moved closer is the opposing team. Marlins park is not an easy place to hit a hovering. Unless you're the other team

    Of course the Washington pitcher is struggling all year yet he owns the Marlins.

    Might as well play for worse record and draft another bust

    Just 1 more win so you don't end at 100 losses

    Mattingly told the Marlins he won't be coming back next season.

    For now. When he decides to come back to managing it will change to the new team's name or if the stars align he comes back and manages the Yankees then you can close it

    Ha.  Gotta appreciate how much you love the guy...you will root for a garbage team just because of him being Manager.

    He deserves better. And they wouldn't have been if Jose didn't die and they got another starter plus their hitting. They had the offense then just not the pitching. But then they blew it apart

    My only hope is that he made a backroom deal with a team that's on the cusp of being a playoff team or that will at least spend

    Of course the Marlins are laying an egg the day their manager says he's not coming back

    It is odd that this news happened a week after I canceled my renewal for next year

    It was never really a Marlins thread. I would have started a Dodgers thread if there wasn't already one.

    I doubt he gets another job.

    Worse managers have gotten jobs.
    Possible places are the Angels, Diamondbacks, Rangers, and White Sox. 3 of those still have their managers but I don't think all will be back. Another possibility could be the Tigers. He says he's not retiring so whether it's a year or 2. He should at least get a look.
    I know this is controversial but if the Astros don't win Dusty could be gone. That's the best chance for him to be in a contender. 

    He just needs to go to a well run organization.

    If he doesn't manage a team next season. Maybe he can call a few Yankees games.

    Marlins struck out 16 times in 9 innings. Typical
