Edwin Rodriguez resigns as manager of Marlins

The losing was enough for Edwin Rodriguez.

Edwin Rodriguez resigned as manager for the Florida Marlins in midst of a 10-game losing streak and a 1-18 record in June. Rodriguez obviously felt as if the losing was too much for him, and the Marlins would not have fired him if he didn’t resign. Rodriguez was in his first full season after Fredi Gonzalez was fired in the middle of last season. Bench coach Brandon Hyde, who was interim manager Sunday, another loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, and former manager Jack McKeon are likely candidates for the job. McKeon’s only roadblock is his age, as he is not 80. The Marlins were playing well heading into June, at 9 games above .500, but the wheels fell off this month, and because of it the Marlins are searching for yet another manager.
