This according to FOXSports’ Ken Rosenthal:
Marlins team president David Samson fueled speculation about Gonzalez’s status by declining to state definitively that the manager would return next season.
One source, however, indicated that Gonzalez never was in jeopardy.
“There is nothing to that — zero,” the source said.
They sure didn’t do a good job to quash the rumors. The Marlins blogosphere (all three blogs!) has been abuzz about this situation, but it appears as if everything should be as it as before and that Fredi Gonzalez will be managing our boys once again. We now return to our regularly scheduled “getting mad about losing players to arbitration” deal.
