Minaya Knows End Is Near, Marlins Owner Eying Backman

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is looking for a more dynamic personality to take over as the manager of the Marlins. He wants a fiery manager.

Among the potential candidates Loria may be looking at are Jim Fregosi, Larry Bowa, and the Mets’ Wally Backman.

Needless to say, losing Backman won’t play well in the New York market and most definitely would become another public relations nigtmare for the Mets.

Rosenthal also says that scouts are telling him that Omar Minaya is resigned to the fact that the end is near.
