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."
