‘The Talk’ Sets Marie Osmond to Replace Sara Gilbert As Host

‘The Talk’ Sets Marie Osmond to Replace Sara Gilbert As Host Following Sara Gilbert’s news that she was leaving “The Talk,” the show announced live on Tuesday that Marie Osmond will replace Gilbert as a co-host. Osmond will join current hosts Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood when the CBS daytime talk series returns for Season 10 in September. Gilbert announced early April that she’s departing the show after nine seasons, in order to focus on other creative endeavors. Recently, she starred on the ABC sitcom “The Conners,” the spinoff of “Roseanne,” and will appear in the upcoming second season.

Donald Arthur Mattingly (born April 20, 1961) is an American former professional baseball first baseman, coach and current manager for the Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Although manager Don Mattingly is in the throes of his fourth straight trying season at the controls of the Marlins, it doesn’t appear his job is in jeopardy just yet. Mattingly will “probably” stay on through the end of the season, but it’s “likely” the team will replace him after that, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports (video link).

The talent-starved Marlins have gone a league-worst 12-31 in 2019 and only mustered a 231-296 mark since hiring Mattingly, though it’s hard to fault him for the team’s failures. In 2016, Mattingly’s first year on the job, the Marlins won their most games since 2010 (79). However, the late-season death of ace Jose Fernandez cast a pall on the campaign and has continued to loom over the franchise. As they moved on without Fernandez, the 2017 Marlins – buoyed by an NL MVP-winning season from outfielder Giancarlo Stanton – did contend into the summer, but they tailed off in September to finish 77-85. As unimpressive as that record appears, it looks downright good compared to the direction the Marlins have gone in since.

Don Mattingly , after spending 14 years of his career playing for the Yankees with George Steinbrenner as the owner, spending five years as manager for the Dodgers with a new ownership group, looked like a man who Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly laughs with teammates during spring practice.

Despite the recent sale of the franchise, the Marlins will welcome back Don Mattingly in 2018 for his third season as manager, team president Michael Hill said.

One of co-owner Derek Jeter’s first acts of business after taking over the franchise from the loathed Jeffrey Loria was to conduct a firesale following the ’17 season. The decision to launch a full rebuild stripped the Marlins’ roster of a great outfield consisting of Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna and starting second baseman Dee Gordon, all of whom were dealt in cost-cutting, farm system-bolstering moves. The Yelich trade looks especially egregious at the moment, largely because he went from an under-the-radar standout with the Marlins to a MVP-winning demigod with the Brewers. Meanwhile, the package the Marlins acquired for Yelich and team-friendly contract hasn’t yet yielded dividends in the majors.

Thanks to home runs by Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, the Cubs earned a 4-1 win over the Marlins at Wrigley Field and increased their lead in the National League Central to one game over the idle Brewers. BOX SCORE: CUBS 4, MARLINS 1 The home runs overshadowed another uneven performance by Yu Darvish, who allowed one hit and struck out seven but lasted only four innings because of six walks in a 97-pitch performance.

Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly is in the last season of a four-year contract. In the end , then general manager Ned Colletti and president Stan Kasten extended Mattingly ’s contract Mattingly was hired to replace his mentor Joe Torre by owner Frank McCourt and Colletti after the 2010 season .

MIAMI (AP) — While Giancarlo Stanton's destination remains unclear, Don Mattingly will be back with the Miami Marlins next season . President of baseball operations Michael Hill confirmed Thursday that Mattingly will return for the third season of his four-year contract as manager.

Unsurprisingly, without their best outfielders and Gordon, the Marlins limped to 63 wins in 2018. Afterward, they shipped out another homegrown star – now-Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto – as he was unwilling to sign an extension with the club and was getting closer to free agency. That deal may pay off for Miami, which acquired a package featuring its No. 1 prospect, righty Sixto Sanchez, for Realmuto. That can’t be of much consolation to Mattingly right now, though. He’s in charge of a roster that got even weaker with Realmuto’s departure, after all, and the results bear that out.

Prior to his Marlins tenure, Mattingly oversaw much more respectable Dodgers teams from 2011-15. Mattingly’s time in LA could convince a manager-needy club to give him a chance if the Marlins do go in another direction sometime soon. Changing managers would be an especially interesting decision coming from Jeter, however, considering he and Mattingly are two Yankees icons who were briefly teammates and still stand as the two most recent captains of the franchise.

There was delayed baseball action in San Diego on Sunday. No, it wasn't due to rain. Snow? Not even close. As the Padres hosted the Miami Marlins, the game had to be halted due to a swarm of bees that invaded Petco Park. How many bees were there? Well, enough to nearly consume a Fox Sports microphone. That is a lot of bees.#FriarFaithful | @MLBONFOX pic.twitter.com/ZaGtagZAUJ — FOX Sports San Diego (@FOXSportsSD) June 2, 2019 Everyone near
