Barely 24 hours after Leyland resigned, the Marlins signed John Boles to a three-year contract. Boles, who has been with the organization since 1991, went 40-35 as interim manager in 1996 after Florida fired Rene Lachemann. "The last time was difficult circumstances," he said. "This is more comfortable personally." When the Marlins had a chance to hire Leyland after the 1996 season, Boles returned to the front office as vice president of player development.

Bavasi, whose father, Buzzie, served as general manager of the Dodgers from 1950-68, returns to the major leagues after having resigned as general manager of the Angels in 1999.

John Boles, manager of the Florida Marlins, said Jim Leyland should get his job. "I hope we do everything we can to get [him]," Boles said. "He is the best man for the job." Leyland, also expected to be wooed by the Angels, said Tuesday that he will leave the Pittsburgh Pirates after this season. Boles, who replaced Rene Lachemann at the All-Star break, has long had a reputation of putting the organization's interests ahead of his own.

John Boles was fired as manager of the Florida Marlins on Monday, replaced on an interim basis by Hall of Famer Tony Perez. The move came one day after relief pitcher Dan Miceli blasted Boles and his coaching staff for their lack of major league playing experience. General Manager Dave Dombrowski made the announcement 2 1/2 hours before the Marlins' game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Pittsburgh. "He's been relieved of his duties," Dombrowski said.

A week ago, Rene Lachemann got a note from Atlanta Braves' Manager Bobby Cox congratulating him for having the Florida Marlins near .500. Then the Marlins lost seven games in a row and Lachemann was fired. On Monday, his replacement was named. John Boles will lead Florida for the first time on Thursday . . . against Cox and the Braves. "I was hoping we'd be opening at Joe Robbie Stadium against Elmer Milquetoast and the Gigiville nine," said Boles, the second manager in Marlin history.

Lawyers for Yosemite killer Cary Stayner on Monday sought to bar his confession from his triple-murder trial, pressing two FBI agents for details on how he was arrested. On the third day of a hearing on whether the FBI improperly obtained Stayner's confession, his defense lawyer asked when Stayner was read his Miranda rights, when he knew he was under arrest and how the FBI got a search warrant for his car.

With Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux both struggling with earned-run averages of more than 4.50, the last person the Atlanta Braves could afford to lose was John Smoltz. They did, as the best pitcher in Atlanta's rotation was put on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of an inflamed right elbow. Smoltz (5-1) noticed the soreness during the Braves' 8-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. He gave up five runs in six innings, the most he has surrendered in 16 starts dating to last August.
