Report: Fredi Gonzalez To Remain Manager of Marlins

UPDATE (11:47 a.m.) -- Have just confirmed through a team source that Fredi Gonzalez will remain as manager of the Marlins.

     Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that Fredi Gonzalez will remain manager of the Marlins. Rosenthal is attributing the information to an unnamed major league source. The Marlins haven't said anything publicly.

   Rosenthal wrote that Gonzalez's job, according to the source, was never in jeopardy.

    "There is nothing to that — zero," Rosenthal quoted the source as saying.

   However, Marlins president David Samson on Sunday left open the possibility that Gonzalez could be fired when he would not say definitively whether the manager would return. Nor have club officials made any attempt the past two days to silence the reports and mounting criticism aimed at owner Jeffrey Loria..

   Furthermore, Bobby Valentine has done nothing to refute several reports that he has spoken to the Marlins about replacing Gonzalez.

   In an e-mail this morning to 790-The Ticket executive producer Andy King, Valentine wrote the following: "Thanks for reaching out to me.  I am on the road right now and I do not want to talk about rumors that might be out there.  Look forward to being on your show but I really don't have  anything to say at this time"

How is valentine gonna do with a team that tears down it's roster every year and starts almost from cheaper scratch He would not sign with the marlins he knows what it takes to win and the caliber of players it takes you keep this team together and make minor adjustments you will see a yearly contender and a team espn and mlb talk about instead of a team of unproven players who will be gone the next year ala calero,UGGLA,gload,amezega,and maybe cantu that with those guys together next year minus hermida with some help can be better together than any team in the nl east so get rid of the owner and maybe baseball in florida can be more dominant than ever
