09:04 AM ET 10.03 | The Marlins have no front-runner for the manager's job but no shortage of candidates; add Reds pitching coach Bryan Price to the list. The Marlins haven't given up hope on Ozzie Guillen, but that seems like a long shot because he said he's staying with the White Sox. One Marlins source said he would not be surprised if Jeffrey Loria again considers Bobby Valentine, but they would need to resolve control issues that doomed the process in June.

Does FanNation only know of two or three people who can manage a baseball team? We get Ozzie and Valentine rumors for every opening. Throw Torre in the mix for the trifecta.

I think Bobby has a clause in his ESPN talking head contract that gives him a bonus for every managerial job he is mentioned in. Allows ESPN to show how smart their Baseball tonight crew is over the MLB network.

Gee. the Florida Marlins Manager list keeps growing longer every week...
Ozzie Guillen as he has indicated will be staying with the ChiSox through 2011. And imagine Bobby Valentine winds-up managing Seattle, if he does manage at all.
That still leaves the Marlins to select from several availible cadidates such as Don Baylor, Dave Martinez, Bob Melvin. Eric Wedge and any current managers receiving their "pink-slips" after the season
