    Marlins McKeon not managing in 2012

    According to Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman, Jack McKeon and the Marlins have come to a mutual agreement that "someone else will manage in 2012."
    There had been rumblings in recent days that McKeon may return in 2012, but that never seemed realistic considering McKeon will turn 81 on November 23. According to Heyman, McKeon will likely remain with the organization in some capacity. Since taking over for Edwin Rodriguez on June 20, McKeon has steered the Marlins to a 28-35 record.
    I can just imagine McKeon puffing on a cigar telling the Marlins "I'm getting too old for this shit". McKeon did well considering where the Marlins were when he took over. I know Ozzie Guillen would love to manage the Marlins but just can't see that happening. I hope Sandberg's name comes up because I think he will be great with the young guys

    His final hurrah needs to be kicking Loria right in his vagina.

    Considering McKeon and Loria celebrated a championship together and McKeon was Loria's handpicked interim manager this year, what you are suggesting wouldn't make any sense. Now if it was one of the former Marlins managers who got a raw deal, then maybe.
