2. Fire Mike Redmond: Yay or Nay?
Ehsan Kassim: Nay. Not because the Marlins or winning or because I think he’s a good manager. I actually don’t think he is. But he’s not to blame for the Marlins problems. The Marlins winning and losing 96% of the time has nothing to do with the manager. It’s whether the stars like Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich are playing well. Managers control so little of what happens on the field.
Travis Honeycutt: Absolutely not. The team is playing better lately, and if they can keep their heads above water, they get Jose Fernandez back in a month or two and Henderson Alvarez back hopefully sooner. At this point the best thing is to let the season play out, and reevaluate Redmond’s future in October.
Daniel Zylberkan: Nay, in the general sense because we’re not going to find anyone better in the middle of the season. (But always yes because Red just isn’t that smart of a manager and he seems to go out of his way to make bad decisions)
Miller Lepree: No. Doesn’t make any sense at all.

Dillon Murrell: I’ve never supported Mike Redmond as a manager and he certainly shouldn’t be fired because of lackluster roster construction. He’s also as good as whatever replacement the Marlins would bring in considering they don’t use analytics themselves, so they would never hire a smart manager. This isn’t a glowing endorsement of Redmond, but he doesn’t deserved to be fired.
Michael Sonbeek: Nay. As much as I don’t like some things Redmond does I think it’s a little too early to give him the boot.
Next: Ozuna or Yelich?
