By Jack Rabbit

Casey Stengel will take over as manager of the Florida Marlins for the 2012 season, it was announced today by owner Jeff Loria.

Stengel, who will be 121 years old in July, died in 1975 after an illustrious managerial career with the Dodgers, Braves, Yankees and Mets. His greatest successes where as manager of the Yankees (1949-1960), when he won ten American League pennants and seven world championships.

Loria said that negotiation with Stengel were conducted through his agent, Sarah Palin, who claims that having been governor of Alaska and a candidate for Vice President make her as qualified as any attorney to negotiate a contract, and psychic medium Oda Mae Brown of New York City.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but Ms. Palin and Ms. Brown said that Stengel will be available for comment sometime before the end of the season.
