08:33 AM ET 10.12 | Not long ago the thought of Bobby Valentine managing in Miami seemed absurd. But more than three months later, he has emerged as the frontrunner to manage the club in 2011. Valentine, who managed the New York Mets in the 2000 World Series, is Florida's "leading candidate,' a person familiar with the process said Sunday. Valentine has been in touch with the Marlins over the last two weeks, a source said, although he has not had a formal interview. More important, the Marlins' job might not be Valentine's top priority. Seven other teams have managerial vacancies, so he could be keeping his options open.

The Marlins have no intention of trying to win. And their owner will fire them as soon as he feels like it, regardless of how the team is playing. Why would Valentine be attracted to that? The Mets job is better, because even thought they're screwed up, they have money, want to win & expectations will be low initially.

Might not be Bobby's 1st Priority?

Bobby has been linked to every single Managerial Opening for the last couple of years...

Total Number of Job Offers = 0 (Zero)

If someone actually offers him a spot - I would recommend taking it.

Florida has enough bad managers, but one more won't hurt , I guess. LOL

Last managed in the U.S. in 2002 and is 60 years old. A big ?????????????
