McKeon was named National League Manager of the Year in 1999 and 2003. The latter award was a result of leading the Marlins, who had a record below .500 when he took the job as their manager during the season, to a World Series victory. On October 2, 2005, just after the Marlins won the last game of the 2005 season, McKeon announced that he would not be returning the following season. McKeon led the Marlins to three of the four winning seasons in franchise history, but there was a consensus within the organization that a managerial change was in order. Players complained that McKeon was too abrasive, and clubhouse tension mounted as the season soured.

Jack McKeon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (422 words)
John Aloysius McKeon (born November 23, 1930 in South Amboy, New Jersey), nicknamed Trader Jack, was a manager in Major League Baseball for the Florida Marlins.
McKeon previously managed the Kansas City Royals from 1973 to 1975, the Oakland Athletics in 1977 and 1978, the San Diego Padres from 1988 to 1990, and the Cincinnati Reds from 1997 to 2000.
McKeon led the Marlins to three of the four winning seasons in franchise history, but there was a consensus within the organization that a managerial change was in order.
McKeon offered 1-year deal (921 words)
McKeon, 67, a 49-year baseball veteran, said he wants to stay but will wait to make a decision until he and Bowden can talk face-to-face when the team returns home this weekend.
McKeon stuck with Young despite early defensive struggles in the outfield, and he leads the team with a.300 average; Casey, the regular first baseman, was hitting.150 went he was sent to Triple-A July 23, but has hit.329 since the All-Star break to boost his average to.258.
McKeon often has said one of his goals is to make the young players understand if they go 0-for-4 one or two days, they're not going to get yanked.
