That as the theory the guys on ESPN Sports Center were batting around Sunday night, based on the idea that the post-game atmosphere would just be too weird if you fired the manager after a no-hitter. And I can’t recall that scenario ever happening.
The Associated Press on the other hand took the tack that the previous 8 2/3 innings were Redmond’s undoing.
My theory is more Arizona-centric. Any loss Sunday was going to cost Redmond his job.
This is the prefect time to make a change.
Not only are the Marlins reeling from a 16-22 start, but look who is coming to town: The Arizona Diamondbacks, losers of four straight and fresh off a sweep at the hands of the hapless Phillies.
What better way to star the tenure of GM-turned-manager Dan Jennings.
