A person familiar with the Miami Marlins' managerial search said they have interviewed Larry Bowa for the job. The person also said Cincinnati Reds pitching coach Bryan Price interviewed for the job Friday. A third candidate is former major-league catcher Mike Redmond , who interviewed Wednesday. The 66-year-old Bowa last managed in 2004, when he finished his fourth year with the Phillies. Carl Crawford finally joined the Los Angeles Dodgers two months after the blockbuster trade from Boston.

He played nine minutes Sunday in the Union's 3-1 Major League Soccer win over the visiting Houston Dynamo, and midfielder-defender Chris Albright was grateful for the opportunity. At 33, the former Penn Charter standout understands where he is in his soccer career. It's a career in which he has been a member of the 2006 U.S. World Cup team and the 2000 Olympic squad, while also winning three MLS championships and making three all-star appearances. While he has appeared in just five games this season, making two starts for an 8-14-6 team, Albright is savoring every moment on the pitch.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be the headliner when Real Madrid meets Glasgow Celtic in Saturday's World Football Challenge at Lincoln Financial Field. Ronaldo also appeared in Philadelphia last season when Real Madrid faced the Union. A broader question is whether Ronaldo's appearance stateside could one day be a common occurrence. He was quoted recently saying that he would consider playing in Major League Soccer later in his career. With celebrated players such as David Beckham making MLS their home, nothing should be considered unrealistic.

IT'S TOO EASY to rag on the officiating in Major League Soccer. Quite frankly, whenever a coach wants to talk about how he was undone by the referees postgame, I generally tune out. Yeah, I know some of the calls have been downright terrible against the Union this year, whether it's been a drag-down in the box that went unseen, or a questionable card infraction (see, Freddy Adu's red for "diving" against Red Bull New York on May 13), but overall, the ridiculousness has remained pretty consistent.

John Hackworth walked across the field at the Eagles' NovaCare Complex Monday morning with his hands at his side. The Union interim manager gave pointers and worked drills with some of the best soccer players in the country, in town for Major League Soccer's All-Star Game on Wednesday night. Occasionally, a player would come through his line whom he knew from previous years. He'd put his hand on the player's shoulder and they'd quickly catch up. Then the player would return to the end of the line and another would come through.

IT'S A BIG DEAL for the players, too. In 2002, Major League Soccer decided to dump the traditional East vs. West format of its annual All-Star Game and instead paired the league's best against international teams. In 2004, the league tried East against West one last time, and … It marked the only time in the last 7 years the event hasn't sold out. Thus the idea to keep MLS players against the world's best was affirmed. This year, the All-Star caravan sets up shop in Chester, where Chelsea, the club champion of Europe, will play Los Angeles' David Beckham, New York's Thierry Henry and the rest of the All-Stars at PPL Park Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. (ESPN2)

MISSOURI AND Pennsylvania. First St. Louis, followed by Kansas City — both vs. Philadelphia. Twice the two areas have placed competing bids to Major League Soccer. Both times, Philly has won. The first was in 2009, when it was between St. Louis and Philadelphia to become MLS' 16th franchise. A year later, the Philadelphia Union made its debut. This year, Kansas City threw its name into the ring for Livestrong Sporting Park, just over the Missouri River, to host the upcoming MLS All-Star Game, as did Philadelphia.
