Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post passes along news from Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that the Marlins are “leaning towards” keeping Edwin Rodriguez as manager for at least one more year.

Rodriguez led the Marlins to a 46-46 record after replacing Fredi Gonzalez as manager in late-June. He was told that he would be considered for managerial gig this offseason, but as of two weeks ago, he hadn’t heard anything from the team.

It looks like he may have to continue waiting by the phone. Earlier today, Marlins president David Samson told Rodriguez that the team was still having internal discussions about filling the position and hadn’t even contacted or interviewed anyone yet.

It appears that the Marlins are back to square one with their search after Bobby Valentine recently withdrew from consideration for the job. Bo Porter, who served as the Diamondbacks’ third base coach this season and as Marlins’ third base coach/outfield coach from 2007-09, is also believed to be a candidate.

    Are they thinking too much or talking too much? Only Scrooge McLoria’s chihuahua knows for sure.
