Larry Bowa interviews for Marlins job

The Miami Marlins’ last manager was an excitable former shortstop, and now they’re considering another one: Larry Bowa.

Bowa became the second person interviewed for the job this week, a person familiar with the search said Friday. The person confirmed the discussions to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Marlins aren’t commenting.

Cincinnati Reds pitching coach Bryan Price was interviewed Friday, the person said. A third candidate is former major league catcher Mike Redmond, who interviewed Wednesday.

The new manager will replace Ozzie Guillen, who was fired after only one dismal season.

Bowa last managed in 2004, when he finished his fourth year with the Philadelphia Phillies. He managed the San Diego Padres in 1987-88 and has a career record of 418-435. Long known for his fiery personality, he has been ejected from games 27 times as a manager.

Thanks to Chicky.

If this comes to fruition, watch out, south Florida -- here comes "Bleep III!"

I'm pretty serene about the idea of Bowa getting the job, he's not going to last two months, and it will probably be an entertaining ride leaving little lasting damage.

Apparently Loria thinks the only people qualified to manage his team are people of the self-immolation persuasion.

If Bowa gets the job, maybe he can convince Mitch Williams, Dan Plesac, Billy Reynolds, and one or two ex-jocks from MLB Network to join his coaching staff?

Cool! Mitch Williams said the reason Anibal Sanchez has turned his season around (he hasn't)...is "because pitching is catchy".

Bushmills can't keep up with the demand this situation would produce.

Is he tanned rested and ready?

Not to be too nitpicky here, Sanchez's numbers have been better with Detroit (113 ERA+ as opposed to a 101 ERA+) in the regular season, better k to bb ratio. He's also having a very good postseason. Detroit seems to do a pretty good job at trading for pitchers and hitters who they can work with to improve.

I think Williams was talking more about career here (should have been clearer).

But Sanchez's 113 ERA+ / *3.74 ERA* over 74 Innings compared with 110 ERA+ / *3.75 ERA* over 794 Innings is a dirty wash.

Don't think 20 Innings of excellent PS pitching changes much.
