Happy Memorial Day from the Dan Patrick Show

Florida manager Jack McKeon joined the show to talk about taking over the Marlins once again.

McKeon said that he’s been with the team in an advisory role since he left the field in 2005. He said he didn’t initiate returning. The team came to him.

Dan asked what he said when they called. “I said I’ll be there, when do you want me?” McKeon said.

McKeon addressed the age gap between him and his players. “That’s no problem, I’ve got grandkids, I’ve got kids of my own.”

McKeon said he likes coaching younger guys because they listen and have a greater desire to improve.

McKeon said he’s heard the age thing before and it doesn’t bother him.  McKeon pointed out he was in his 70s when he won a ring in 2003. “Everyone thought I was too old then,” McKeon said.

McKeon talked about why he sat Hanley Ramirez for a day. He said he thought he needed a day of rest and that was the whole story.
