Cora is gone with him. Apparently they didn't like that Guillen had delegated lineup responsibilities to Cora.

They still owe Guillen $7.5mil over 3 years.

Spend copious amounts of money to show their fans they are going for it all. Start giving up after 3 1/2 months of mediocrity and piss in their fans faces. Stay classy, Marlins (read: Jeff Loria).

Although Guillen should've never been hired in the first place, but this is still just another ridiculous note in this past year for the Marlins

Will anyone be stupid enough to hire Bobby V or Guillen again?

Somebody might hire Guillen for something, but I'm guessing that Major League Baseball has seen the last of Bobby V.

Maybe one of them will be the Cubs next Color analyst?

Wouldn't suprise me if one or both of their names came up next time there's an opening. MLB owners love to recycle. What went wrong for their respective teams can easily be deflected onto other people. The Red Sox had injuries and it looks like they have other issues too. It doesn't matter who you are, if you're being comapred to Loria you should come out as the better person.

Signing your former players with little to no managing experience is so in. Bonus points if he was a catcher.

I never really understood why the same MLB retreads get hired over and over. It doesn't really happen in other sports. Like in the NFL, you have pretty much one shot to prove your worth or you are almost NEVER getting another opportunity any time soon.

I still am confident that Bobby V is done in MLB.

Who would hire Guillen though? Miami was his perfect landing spot and he wore out his welcome within a year. He is loud, a PR nightmare, and not a good manager. Did players even enjoy playing for him?

I don't remember where, but I am 100% sure I read in the offseason the Marlins were only spending this money to sell tickets and they were going to unload a lot of the salary as soon as they could.

What is mind boggling to me is why you trade Hanley for Eovaldi. Eovaldi while young never struck me as a great young arm. Talk about selling low on Hanley. If you were going to trade him why go through the trouble of moving him to 3rd in the first place after signing Reyes? If they would have traded Hanley after they signed Reyes - there is no doubt they would have gotten almost double the return IMO.

And the move before that to trade for Carlos Lee.. I think that has to be the worst year of acquisitions and moves maybe ever.
