Bobby Valentine to the Marlins is not dead yet

It’s been nearly 20 hours since the last Bobby Valentine managerial rumor, so why not throw another one on the pile?

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick says that the Marlins are still considering Valentine and that he’s “on their list.”  I question whether they’re on his list given how freaking mad they made him back in June, but then again, Valentine and the Wilpons have a rocky history too and that didn’t stop the Mets thing from yesterday.

Crasnick also says that Rays’ bench coach Dave Martinez is on the Marlins’ list too. Not sure why I didn’t know he was the Rays’ bench coach. I’ve totally forgotten about him, actually. My Dave Martinez-dar is so faulty these days that I probably would have bet money that the Cubs were considering him as a fourth outfielder next season.
