Bryan Price interviewed to replace Ozzie Guillen as Marlins manager last week, but John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the Reds pitching coach has now withdrawn his name from consideration.

He’ll remain in Cincinnati after previously signing a contract extension with the Reds.

Meanwhile, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald the Marlins aren’t finished interviewing candidates and plan to bring in some other options in addition to Mike Redmond and Larry Bowa. Brad Ausmus already turned down a chance to interview for the job and Spencer speculates that Redmond is the current favorite.

    As reported one minute earlier by yours truly, who is not even getting paid for this, on the Colorado Rockies managerial search thread.

    Smack!!!! Wake up, Aaron!

    Smart man. He won’t have to deal with the shit show in Miami: the shit owners, shitty crowds, overpaid/underperforming “superstars” (lookin’ at you Jose Reyes), the ball park that looks like the city threw up on itself.

    Run for the hills, friend. Or just run far, far away from Florida baseball.

      You must have never attended a game at the terrific new stadium or you wouldn’t be dissing the stadium or the warm, enthusiastic fans. Anyone looking for a great baseball experience could do much, much worse–see Fenway Park.

        Ignore him. He’s just a T3C (Troll 3rd Class) who seems to have had a bit of a run-in with one of our state troopers and his breathalyzer (that, or maybe he popped a jellyfish with his plastic fork on the beach despite having been warned by wiser folks and had it splatter his face) during spring break – though I admit that I never knew junior high schools had spring breaks before this nincompoop showed up.

        But yes, it is a wonderful stadium for baseball. And though there are relatively few of us who have been in it, those of us who have can spot a complete ignoramus on the subject – of architecture in general, I mean – fairly easily.

        Fenway Park IS a dump. I live in Boston and have been wishing for 20 years that they’d tear the place down. It’s just time.

    I hope whoever is eventually hired works into their contract, the ability to destroy that hideous monument to flying fish in the outfield.

      Leave Tommy alone!

    Hmmmm…
    I wonder if (just maybe)…Bryan Price is holding out for two years.
    You know…to see if anything closer just happens to present itself.

    Bowa is the best choice because he has a history with Trader Jack and therefore McKeon can help with him being acclimated to the system there. He is a proven manager and a solid baseball guy – well acknowledged in MLB.
