Miami Marlins General Manager Dan Jennings has gotten far less credit than he deserves for his tenure as manager.
He came in early in the season, at 16-22, with zero managerial experience and had to endure the loss of his pivotal hitter and two starting pitchers. It’s true, his overall record is less the .500, but as the season progressed, he improved.
And from late August to season’s end he had the second-best record in the majors. Of the Marlins’ last 12 series, they won 10.
This is the record of a winning manager, one who matured on the job. Instead of being fired, he deserves to lead the team.
