The Miami Marlins have fired manager Mike Redmond. The firing occurred after the Marlins were nearly no-hit by Shelby Miller of the Atlanta Braves.
The Marlins are 16-22 and 6 games back of the New York Mets in the NL East. They have lost six or their last seven games.
Redmond was hired by the team prior to the 2013 season. The firing is a bit of a surprise given that Redmond had has contract extended two years after the 2014 season. Redmond went 155-207 in his two plus seasons at the helm of the Marlins.
However, I think is a good move because I don't think Redmond has his players' backs. I didn't like how he ripped his ace Jose Fernandez after the Braves took exception to him hitting a home run late in the 2013 season.
