Fredi to miss Saturday

Jokingly, Fredi Gonzalez on Friday was asking which members of the media wanted to manage the Marlins on Saturday.

A few hands went up.

Gonzalez will not be with the team for the second game of the series with the Rays because he is returning to his home in Marietta, Ga., to attend the graduation of his daughter, Gigi.

Gigi is graduating from Lassiter High School.

Filling in for Gonzalez will be bench coach Carlos Tosca.

Great news! Maybe now we’ll win a game.

I second that!

Yes, Fredi not being able to manage today is great news and gives us somewhat of a chance — But Tosca is a lot like him so can’t get all too excited about the situation. Need to get them both out of here and we will be just fine

I wonder if maybe we could get lucky, and he gets a job up there cleaning toilets or something in that highschool, and doesn’t come back to the Marlins.

We need a new Manager, and he should be with his family!!! 24/7!!! Keep him out of miami!

Oh, and by the way I’m CUBAN, and im telling you he’s a terrible manager.

I’m not going to stick up for him just becasuse we’re both cubans! When you suck you just suck, and Fredi is a sucky manager.

Hell I’d rather have Rene Lachman back as manager!

You obviously get what you pay for—the lowest payroll, the worst team.

But, some of these things are just plain bad baseball, at any level. The team seems to be not very well coached, and very poorly managed. You would think that someone could work with the hitters like Bonifacio, and the outfielders like Hermida. Instead, same thing, every day…hitting weak fly ball outs on offense, and misplayed fly balls on defense.

Enough of Fredi’s double switches. Enough of taking out one relief pitcher, who isn’t being forced to leave, after he throws a 1-2-3 inning, only to replace him with a another “who-knows-what you’ll get tonight reliever.”

I would love to see Girardi or Jack (or somebody like them) back. Their teams’ were disciplined. Fredi is just way too nice. He has lost the respect of this team. I am a season ticket holder, and right now I can’t give me seats away.

This was not Larry’s best year, either Nelson and Rhodes could have really helped.

You can’t fire this whole team, but you can dump the manager. 11-1 was great. 8-24 is pathetic. Fredi needs to go!

YOU ALL NEED TO SHUT UP BECAUSE FREDI IS A GOOD COACH DO YOU GUYS FORGET HE WAS RUNNER UP FOR MANAGER OF THE YEAR!!! YEAH YOU FORGOT THAT DIDN’T YOU!!! SO BEFORE YOU BASH HIM YOU NEED TO REALIZE HE HAD THE YOUNGEST TEAM IN BASEBALL LAST YEAR AND WE STILL ALMOST GOT IN THE PLAYOFFS!!! ALSO FREDI CANT DO EVERYTHING THE PLAYERS GOTTA BE ABLE TO HIT, FIELD, PLAY DEFENSE, AND PITCH ON THERE OWN SO THEM NOT HITTING WELL ISN’T ALL HIS FAULT OR THE HITTING COACH’S FAULT ITS THE PLAYERS BECAUSE THEY ARE PLAYING THE GAMES AND THEY ARE SWINGING AT PITCHES OUT OF THE BOX!!! AND THE PITCHING YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO HIT YOUR SPOTS WHEN THE CATCHER GIVES A SPOT AND NOT THROW RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE PLATE OR IN THE BATTERS SWEET SPOT!!! THAT’S NOT FREDI’S JOB OR THE PITCHING COACHES JOB ITS THE PITCHERS JOB TO DO THAT!!! SO YOU ALL NEED TO SHUT YOUR MOUTHS AND RESPECT THE MANAGER BECAUSE HE IS DOING GOOD WITH THE TEAM HE HAS RIGHT NOW AND HE HAS TO DEAL WITH ALOT INJURIES THAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE TEAM!!!

There should be an age restriction in these blogs so we don’t have 10-year olds writing annoying comments with all caps.

When the players are consistently struggling, its up to the manager to step up and start changing strategy Jimmy. There is alot more the coach is responsible for, but don’t worry, you’ll get it in another few years.
