Ozzie Guillen says Hanley Ramirez has yet to embrace a move to third base. The Miami Marlins plan the position switch so All-Star newcomer Jose Reyes can play shortstop. Guillen said he has spoken with Ramirez only once since the signing of Reyes, but he expects Ramirez to accept the move once he realizes it gives the Marlins their best chance to win. The Marlins finished last in the NL East in 2011 and haven't reached the playoffs since 2003. But this year they're expected to contend for a postseason berth. With spring training a week away, Guillen spoke Monday about the Marlins' offseason makeover, which included a name change and spending spree as the franchise moves into a new ballpark.
