Going to interview for the Marlins job.

I think he used to be a coach there and is well respected.

Good for him.

Which job? 3B coach? Bench coach?

What's his connection to Bobby Valentine?

If Bo leaves us at 3B coach, who might take his place?

ok, now dont take this the wrong way....

Everything im hearing is Bobby V to FLA.


is MLB like the NFL with the rooney rule having to interview a minority candiate for openings?

it seems like Bobby is a lock, he dropped out of the Balt manger running...


cause i hope they are not bringing him in for a dog and pony show...

Might just be a courtesy interview but Bo is well respected for his past work.

Bobby V is going to cost a team that has been cheap in the past a big chunk of change. Deal looks done but might fall thru.

You never know.

If the Valentine thing goes through - it will be an interesting study of the impact of a Manager. I still believe Managers have little impact on a season - or at least the difference from Freddi to Bobby will.

Yes - if you or i were managing vs a pro, we might get schooled... but i dont believe the difference from one to the other costs/gains MLB teams much more than 2-3 games a year.

This will be fun. We will get to see what kind of manager he is, and why he has been in Japan for some time.

Looks like the deal might be falling apart like I said yesterday.

The media in their rush to be first may have all jumped the gun on this one.

Dont count out Bo yet. Wink

According to this article by Robothal the only reason that Bo was interviewed, along with internal candidate Edwin Rodriguez, was to avoid getting fined from MLB for failing to interview any minorities for the position, which happened to them in 2003 when they hired McKeon.

If that is the case, that is seriously fucked up for them to waste his time bringing Bo in like that.

That might be the case but the person Ive been talking to says the Marlins front office and players really respect Bo for the work he did with them while he was there.

No doubt the Marlins are a screwed up organization but could the National Media make another mistake on this story? Wink

The DBACKS couldnt afford Brons Driver.

Good for Bo. I hope he gets the job and I hope he does well.

DBACKS front office realizes their players dont listen to the 3rd base coach so they will leave the position vacant in another cost cutting move. Wink
