Marlins considering McKeon

The Marlins are considering hiring Jack McKeon as an interim manager to replace Edwin Rodriguez.

McKeon, 80, managed the Marlins from 2003-05, winning the 2003 World Series over the Yankees as a wild card. He took over 38 games into the 2003 season and stayed through 2004 and 2005, compiling a 241-207 record with Florida.

McKeon has managed five teams over his career -- the Royals, A's, Padres, Reds and Marlins -- and had a winning record with four of them, though he has reached the playoffs just once in 15 seasons.

Rodriguez resigned Sunday with the Marlins at 32-39 and in last place in the NL East after a 1-17 stretch to start June. Rodriguez was in his first season as the full-time manager in Miami after replacing Fredi Gonzalez midway through last season. He was the lowest paid manager in the majors.
