MLB rumors: Longtime Giants coach Hensley Meulens could join Marlins

SAN FRANCISCO—Hensley Meulens was one of the first two people to interview for Bruce Bochy’s old job, but now it’s looking like Meulens won’t be with the Giants at all next season.

Meulens is not one of the finalists for the manager job and now appears headed for Miami. According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Meulens and the Marlins are discussing a position on the coaching staff. Meulens and Marlins manager Don Mattingly played together with the Yankees in the early 1990s.

Wait- that’s a job one would volunteer to take?

Hasn't Muelens been well-regarded for a while? No one wants him as a manager, though?

Wow. Someone noted a couple days ago how frustrated he must be to have been with the Giants for so long and still not been a finalist for the manager job. But man...I guess the answer to that is "more than even we could possibly have imagined." Is this a cry for help?

@2 That was me...and to run to the Marlins, this man has been hurt beyond repair, it seems.

It's especially gotta hurt when one of the guys being considered ahead of him just finished off a managerial effort in Philly that impressed absolutely no one.

I don't know. Reuniting with an old friend, trading the bay area for Miami, and a better tax situation are all compelling reasons to make the jump. Particularly if he feels disrespected and doesn't want to work under someone like Gabe Kapler.

I think the ex-Yankees in Miami probably recognize the Marlins as a gravy train.

Meulens is originally from Curacao and also runs the Dutch Antilles Baseball Academy (or at least, he used to). Wikipedia says that "He is reportedly interested in starting a baseball league in Curaçao in association with Major League Baseball's RBI Program." Miami is much closer to home than SF which could be contributing to this decision.
