I think Valentine quit a long time ago.

Marlins could do worse than Manny Acta.

Oh wait, they already have.

I think both Guillen and Valentine get their walking papers the day after the season ends.

I never have understood the logic of firing a manager with just a few games left in the season. Are teams worried the news would get lost in the shuffle as the playoffs were spinning up?

I think it happens for two reasons:

1. It prevents the normal speculation that ensues as soon as the last out of the season is recorded, and allows everyone to enter the off-season knowing that they'll have a new manager next season.

2. On a more personal note, it affords players, coaches, and other members of the organization close to the manager a chance to say goodbye, as people frequently go their separate ways once the season ends and may otherwise not have a chance to do so.

Bobby V will be gone by the end of next week and right back on the BBTN set to analyze the playoffs.
