08:20 AM ET 08.01 | The Marlins now consider Edwin Rodriguez a strong candidate to remain manager beyond 2010, especially if the team closes strongly. ``What I like is he communicates well,'' Chris Coghlan said.

`What I like is he communicates well,'' Chris Coghlan said.

He forgot to mention that he doesn't have to pay him as much as a big name managing candidate.

The Marlins don't need a re-tread manager. If Rodriquez can show that he's a guy that can keep the team together and win games, then give him the job.

You can always fire him later on... The Marlins have shown the ability to do that quite well.

Just finish ahead of the Mets and he's in.

the marlings can compete when ever they feel like it, but i still think that this team has the talented players to go deep on any season they just lack of motivation it seems as if they want to win but something make them to doubt about it!

the angels are on diet, just to see them score one run every game make me think that the halos are trying to reduce their budget, they lack of prodution and their unpatient at the plate kill any type of late rally innings, in general the angels forgot their aggressive aproach on the plate by not been disciplined, and whenever the player comes to swing at the first pitch its a comun sense that will be a fast out and one two three inning, thanks to the lazy and uninterested game plan!!

I love how Jeffrey Loria fires a manager claiming that he wants to win. Then trades some of his best players & then expresses confidence in some Mexican manager he picked up behind the Home Depot. What a country.

The Marlins have only lost 6 games since the all-star break under Rodriguez. How are your Braves doing?

Saw the Melky Cabrera error....Bwahaha.

The Marlins are the poster child for the fools that say a small market team can't compete. They draft well and play the game well. They get a new stadium look out. The Marlins and Rays are really run well considering the low fans base. I hope they finish ahead of the Mets. $130 million to finish 4th. So much for trying to buy World Series right?

The Marlins are full of irony. They won the series in 1997 with one of the highest payrolls in the majors and won it again in 2003 with one of the smallest.

They have proven that you can do both, as long as you are smart about how you do it.

well said. It gets old listening and reading the whinning about the Yankee payroll. The NY Rangers consistantly have the highest payroll in the NHL and where does that get them? The Knicks with their payroll. The Cowboys as well. The Yankees payroll from 2001-2008 was okay as long as it was a joke but now that they win it's whine time.
Good for the Marlins and Rays. If the Royals and Pirates would hire the right people they too could be a threat like the Marlins and Rays.
