Yankees' Tony Pena 'Serious Candidate' To Become Marlins Manager

I have thought for a long time now that New York Yankees' bench coach Tony Pena deserves another shot at managing a big-league team.

SI.com's Jon Heyman discussed the possibility Thursday. The Palm Beach Post also reported that Pena is "a serious candidate," along with Dodger third base coach Larry Bowa, former Met skipper Bobby Valentine and ex-Met second baseman Wally Backman.

Pena managed the Kansas City Royals from 2002-2005, and was AL Manager of the Year in 2003.
