Florida rookie skipper Joe Girardi is a serious Manager of the Year candidate. He also might have been a serious candidate to be sacked last week. Girardi is downplaying his reported disagreement with team owner Jeffrey Loria that may have led to a potential firing/resignation last Sunday after a home loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I think this whole situation has gotten blown out of proportion, which is OK," Girardi said last week while the Marlins were in Washington. "People speculated on a lot of things that happened."

It's an easy name for bad puns, yet not real simple to pronounce. Dan Uggla -- as in UGH-gla. You might want to remember it. Because it's a name that will get serious consideration in the National League Rookie of the Year race. "He's just been wonderful," Florida Marlins manager Joe Girardi said of Uggla, the 26-year-old second baseman who skipped Triple-A. "He is everything a manager wants in a player. He's a guy that plays hard, prepares hard and makes adjustments on the fly." The baby Marlins were expected to have a Rookie of the Year contender this season.

Shut out through seven innings, the Orioles lost to the Florida Marlins yesterday, 6-1, at Roger Dean Stadium. Carl Pavano tossed four scoreless innings, the only glitch a single by Javy Lopez in the fourth. Mike Fontenot drove in the Orioles' only run with a single in the eighth that scored Jose Morban, who doubled with one out. Fontenot also doubled in the sixth. Tim Raines and Jose Bautista singled in the ninth, giving the Orioles six hits. They were held to two in Friday's road loss to the Marlins, and only had two going into the eighth yesterday.

If the Giants move from San Francisco to St. Petersburg, Fla., do not feel sorry for these people:* San Francisco fans: They didn't care about the traumatic effect the Giants' move to their city had on New York fans 35 years ago.* San Francisco-area officials and businesses: They didn't do enough to insure the success of any of the four voter referendums to provide funds for a new stadium.* Peter O'Malley: The Los Angeles Dodgers owner can't complain about the Giants abandoning the West Coast and their ageless rivalry, because his father abandoned Brooklyn and induced Horace Stoneham, owner of the Giants, to move west with him. Of course, if O'Malley wants to travel in tandem with the Giants once more, Brooklyn fans would allow the Dodgers back into the borough.

WASHINGTON - Yesterday afternoon, manager Frank Robinson complained that the Washington Nationals' highlights were being given short shrift by ESPN. Then his Nationals went out and committed a handful of not ready for prime time gaffes against Dontrelle Willis and the Florida Marlins as Washington's five-game winning streak and perfect home record came to an end. Florida's 9-4 victory was a game Robinson may have wished weren't broadcast live on the cable giant. But it was. The first-place Nationals had to be nearly perfect against Willis.

Brad Penny pitched three perfect innings, and the Florida Marlins avenged Thursday's loss to the Orioles with a 6-0 victory at Roger Dean Stadium. Omar Daal allowed run-scoring doubles to Luis Castillo and Miguel Cabrera in the first inning, and a sacrifice fly by Jeff Conine increased the lead to 3-0. Castillo added a run-scoring single in the second. Daal was charged with four runs and seven hits in two innings. "The feeling with all my pitches, I know I am going to get it and I know it has to be soon, because I want to be in the starting rotation," Daal said.

Carl Barger resigned yesterday as Pittsburgh Pirates president to take the same position with the expansion Florida Marlins. Under an unusual arrangement, however, Barger will virtually run both teams indefinitely.Baseball's conflict-of-interest rules bar a major-league club employee from working for another team, but Barger will begin staffing the Marlins' front office while running the Pirates until his successor is chosen.Barger, a longtime friend of Marlins owner H. Wayne Huizenga's, could remain in Pittsburgh until the end of the season even while selecting key executives -- possibly including a general manager and manager -- for Florida.

It is time to find out if the Florida Marlins are real World Series contenders or just some wild-card wanna-bes. No doubt, they would like to believe they have already established their legitimacy through the first 5 1/2 months of the season, but they have entered into a competitive vortex that could give them control of the National League wild-card race or quickly knock them out of it altogether. The flying fish just began a 13-game stretch against their chief NL East rivals. They play host to the division-leading Atlanta Braves this weekend and open a three-game wild-card showdown series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night at Veterans Stadium.
