Joe Girardi not returning to the Marlins

New report out that says there is "zero" chance Joe Girardi returns as the Marlins manager.

I know this will start the cries that the Rangers should bring Girardi to Texas, but I don't know that replacing one obsessive hardass with another obsessive hardass is all that smart.

Plus, I think managers that make stupid rules like banning their players from having facial hair are complete tools.

In fact, you know what out-of-left-field name I'd throw out there?

Tom Grieve.

Smart baseball guy. Long-time Ranger ties. Former g.m. Knows the game. And much more laid back than his predecessor.

I think it would go over very well with the fans, and I think he'd be a pretty decent manager.

Just something to think about...
