A-Rod next manager of Marlins?

Buster Olney discusses why he thinks the Miami Marlins should explore the possibility of Alex Rodriguez being the team's next manager.

Eventually, Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria will grow tired of the Dan Jennings experiment, of having a manager who hadn't managed before last week. Maybe that'll happen after more losses -- Miami has dropped seven of nine since the managerial change, including a tough loss Tuesday -- or after more changes in the coaching staff. Maybe the Marlins will turn it around, and Loria will still switch managers. As the old saying goes, the only sure things in life are death, taxes and a new Miami manager.

The next time Loria considers a change, assuming that conversation doesn't take place until after the 2015 season, here's a name he ought to seriously think about: Alex Rodriguez.

Yes, of course there are a lot of reasons why you wouldn't hire Rodriguez, but before we delve into those, think about the qualifications that Rodriguez would bring to the table for the Marlins.
