Fish Unfiltered: Reacting to Kim Ng’s Departure from the Marlins

Multiple reports that surfaced on Monday detail how principal owner Bruce Sherman wasn’t fully confident in Ng leading the Marlins baseball operations department moving forward. As was the case with Michael Hill in 2020, the franchise is opting for a front office shake-up despite coming off a rare postseason berth.

Ng’s departure leaves behind Brian Chattin to serve as Miami’s interim GM. He and fellow assistant GMs Oz Ocampo and Dan Greenlee are possible internal candidates for the job. Notable external candidates worth mentioning include Sig Mejdal and Eve Rosenbaum (Orioles), James Click (Blue Jays), Josh Byrnes (Dodgers), Ben Sestanovich (Braves), Carlos Rodriguez (Rays) and free agents Chaim Bloom and Jon Daniels.

  1. Don’t discount Jon Daniels former Ranger, I would be happy with him. Also Thad Levine of Twins

  2. A James Click, Pres of Baseball Ops; and Sig Mejdal, GM combo would definitely salvage the negativity around Kim leaving, to me at least. Mejdal is a really nice name, as someone from Baltimore definitely deserves a look
