Bobby Valentine has once again removed his name from consideration for the Marlins managerial job, reports Tim Kurkjian of ESPN. Back in June, Valentine seemed to be on the verge of taking over as Florida skipper before talks between the two sides broke down.
The former manager of the Rangers, Mets, and Chiba Lotte Marines said that he has been in contact with the Marlins about the job since the end of the season but decided to go in a different direction. On Sunday, it was reported that Valentine was the leading candidate for the vacant post in Florida. Bobby V has also interviewed in Toronto but is considered a longshot.
