Report: Marlins' Guillen could be out after one season

The SportsXchange

Ozzie Guillen may join Joe Girardi on the list of managers who lasted one year in Miami.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Marlins are "seeking a replacement" for Guillen, which would lead to Guillen's firing after just the first year of a four-year, $10 million contract.

The Marlins finished 69-93 and in the National League East cellar, despite entering a season with high expectations. The team spent heavily heading into their first season in a new ballpark, signing free agents Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell to long-term contracts.

Not only did the Marlins underachieve on the field, but Guillen angered a heavy Cuban fan base when he said he admired Cuban dictator Fidel Castro for staying in power so long. His comments appeared in a Time Magazine article and prompted a five-game suspension from the team and dulled much of the season-opening buzz about the team.

"Do I have any regrets about this year? Yes, about the guy comments," he told the Florida Sun-Sentinel on Thursday, referring to that story. "That's it. Losing games, that's part of the game."
