The Marlins are said to have fired Jeff Torborg and replaced him with Jack McKeon.
McKeon has made a career of replacing managers fired mid-season. In 1978, he replaced Bobby Winkles as the A's manager; Winkles had replaced him the previous year. He was the GM in San Diego and then in 1988 replaced Larry Bowa as manager. In 1997 he replace Ray Knight as the Reds' manager. Overall he has a 770-733 record (.512 winning percentage) in parts of 12 seasons as a major-league manager.
He was also a minor-league manager for 15 years before his first major-league job with the Royals (and two more in between major keague jobs). He started his major-league managerial career 30 years ago and is 72 years old. He is already only one of three managers to pilot a team after the age of 70, Connie Mack and Casey Stengel being the others. He is also the only one of those three with a winning record past 70.
Torborg was crated up and brought to Miami when the Lorria regime swapped the Expos for the Marlins. Apparently, his losing ways--the Marlins are 16-22 this season--and his overuse of young arms--three starters are already out this year with major injuries--were too much for even the Marlins brass to handle. Torborg was 95-105 overall with the Marlins in one-plus seaons. He is 634-718 overall in 11 major-league seasons with five different clubs.
