Marlins | No shortage of candidates to replace Girardi

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports a trio of third-base coaches likely will receive interviews with the Florida Marlins for the soon to be open manager's job. The Atlanta Braves' Fredi Gonzalez, the Chicago White Sox' Joey Cora and the New York Mets' Manny Acta are three who have Latin roots and speak fluent Spanish, which would be considered a significant upgrade from the current staff. Other possible candidates to replace Joe Girardi include Triple-A Albuquerque manager Dean Treanor, Japanese League manager Trey Hillman, Braves special assistant Jim Fregosi, St. Louis Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo, New York Mets bench coach Jerry Manuel and Marlins broadcaster Cookie Rojas, although Rojas is more likely to fill a coaching role.
