09:17 AM ET 07.04 | The Marlins' decision to keep Edwin Rodriguez as manager through the end of the year came about because ownership wants to see which managers are available after the season. Ozzie Guillen would be at the top of the Marlins' list if he were available.

Ozzie would be really frustrated with the lack of purchasing power in Florida. Don't think it will happen.

If Ozzie leaves the White Sox, I see him taking the helm Arizona or LA Dodgers, if Torre leaves.

well on reality anything can happen, who knows maybe at the end the white sox will sign him for a extended time.

I don't follow the White Sox at all. Is Guillen's job in jeopardy?

I don't think that it's in any jeopardy, but he and Kenny Williams, the GM, don't get along all that well. Ozzie was pissed the White Sox didn't draft his son higher than the 22nd round, and has another son that worked for the White Sox but either resigned or was let go because of comments he made via Twitter. I'd think the Sox would have to fire him for him to be available, his contract runs through 2012.

Ya like the sox would let him go to another team he is a face of the franchise. When you say the white sox people think of ozzie. He's staying in Chicago.

If only this were true. Jeffrey Loria and Ozzie together. The mushroom cloud over their new stadium would be a thing of beauty.

Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poopoo?

Yeah I don't think Ozzie would have a bid for Florida given their track record with managers. This is more pie in the sky than Knicks fans thinking Lebron is coming.
