Mike Lowell:

The first choice for the Marlins managerial position last year, he declined due to wanting to stay broadcasting on the MLB network but it doesn’t mean he is not a good choice for the position. A two time World Series hero, Mike Lowell is the pure definition of clutch. His hitting and defensive prowess made him such a great player from 1999-2007. The Marlins would love to have both Mike Lowell and Mike Redmond on the same coaching staff in order to recreate the magic that was the 2003 Marlins season. There really isn’t much that I could say that hasn’t been said about Mike Lowell but while I am pretty sure that he won’t join the team, it would be awesome if he could teach our team how to become champions.

The Marlins are in a position to start anew with a hitting coach that will be of Mike Redmond’s choosing. I trust Red and I do think that next year, regardless of who is our hitting coach is, the Marlins will make huge strides. Maybe taking those strides into a level of success that the fans have been waiting for so long.
