As per Palm Beach Post beat-blogger Joe Capozzi, the Florida Marlins have relieved manager Fredi Gonzalez of his duties, effective today. The Marlins are currently 34-36 and sit 7.5 games behind the first place Braves. Also getting pink slipped: bench coach Carlos Tosca and hitting coach Jim Presley, who couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with a Sherman tank. Someone named Edwin Rodriguez has been named interim manager; he's probably just keeping that seat warm for Bobby Valentine.

What's next for Fredi? Well, there'll be a tidy opening in the Braves dugout after this season and Gonzalez spent a number of years as a coach in Atlanta under Bobby Cox.

No public statement yet from Hanley Ramirez, who must be relieved now that he is free to lollygag to his heart's content.

The Marlins fan base, more than anyone, really pushed for this move. Those eight dudes were really sick of the underachieving Gonzalez.

THE BRAVES NEED TO HIRE FREDI RIGHT NOW
