MARLINS INTERVIEWING PHILLIES’ LARRY BOWA FOR MANAGER’S JOB

By Sam Bush

The 2015 Phillies season ended yesterday on a high note, a 7-2 victory over the Miami Marlins that ensured the Phils only 99 defeats instead of the dreaded 100.

And now the Marlins may be poaching one of Philly’s legends.

They got permission to interview Phillies bench coach Larry Bowa, according to FOXSports.com.

Dan Jennings, who left his GM post to assume the manager role midseason, is expected to return to the front office, but his prospective role remains unclear.

The Marlins, who have already interviewed Bo Porter and Manny Acta for the manager job, are expected to meet with Bowa today, according to CSN Philly. Bowa was offered a contract for 2016 with the Phillies but has yet to agree to it.

Bowa, 69, has previously managed the Padres (two years) and Phillies (four years), amassing a 418-435 record. In Philly, he never won fewer than 80 games in a season.

Jennings was reportedly told in September the team would hire a new manager in the offseason, but he seems unsure where he would fit in the new front office.
