After ESPN reported that the Florida Marlins would be offering Bobby Valentine a 4-year deal a few days back, it now seems that deal is now off the table.

Via Ken Rosenthal at FoxSports:

Both Loria and Valentine possess strong egos. Both are highly volatile. Their relationship goes back more than 20 years, and their plot to overthrow Gonzalez goes back to at least the end of last season.

One source says that something happened in the final discussions between Loria and Valentine — not a squabble over money or struggle over control, but a philosophical dispute.

Others, however, suggest that Loria is engaged in an internal power struggle with his stepson, club president David Samson, who is opposed to hiring Valentine.

As reported in an earlier post, there's a rumor out that Bobby Valentine is in talks with the Florida Marlins.  But CBS Sports is carrying an article that says Marlins' president David Samson isn't aware of any talks between Bobby and the Marlins.

While the team hasn't made any decisions on Fredi Gonzalez yet, he is still technically under contract through the 2011 season.  Gonzalez is currently the winningest manager in Marlins' history.

ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting that Bobby Valentine is in talks with the Florida Marlins about the possibility of managing the team.

At a time when Bobby Valentine has begun the process of talking with teams about a possible return as a manager in Major League Baseball, sources said he is in communication with the Florida Marlins about a possible position with that team -- less than eight months after Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez received a two-year extension.
