Join us for some rockin' good fun with the manager of the most spend-happy team in baseball at these winter meetings.
BEST OF MAXIM
Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen is having enough trouble learning the names of his own team - much less a division rival.
After signing shortstop Jose Reyes and veteran hurler Mark Buehrle, the Marlins have undergone a pronounced facelift this week.
When Guillen was asked about the five-time reigning National League East champion Phillies, he wasn't sure how to respond...
Hanley Ramirez has a "strong preference" to stay at shortstop, according to a major league source. His new manager with the Marlins, Ozzie Guillen, knows it.
Guillen, in an interview with FOXSports.com Monday night, gave an emphatic, impassioned case for Ramirez not just to remain with the team, but remain its centerpiece.
In fact, Guillen said just that to...
DALLAS -- On his way to the airport Wednesday, Ozzie Guillen practically cackled toward a crowd of Chicago-based reporters. “They said players wouldn’t want to play for me,’’ he said, laughing.
Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen says the team has reached a deal with free-agent pitcher Mark Buehrle. The Marlins have been the busiest team at baseball's winter meetings. Earlier this week they landed All-Star free agents Jose Reyes and Heath Bell. Buehrle pitched for Guillen last season with the Chicago White Sox.
DALLAS — Ozzie Guillen won’t say who bet against it, but the new Miami Marlins manager said he recently bet someone that his buddy Carlos Zambrano will win more than 14 games — for the Cubs — in 2012. In fact, he denied recruiting the Cubs’ on-double-secret-probation pitcher or having designs...
While the Marlins were busy making a sales pitch to all-world first-baseman Albert Pujols, reports swirled Tuesday that incumbent centerpiece Hanley Ramirez is not happy that the team wants him to move to third base to make room for new shortstop Jose Reyes.
At one point, word at baseball's winter meetings in Dallas was that Ramirez had demanded a trade from the Marlins.
Mark Buehrle and Ozzie Guillen reunited: The free-agent pitcher will sign a four-year, $58 million deal with the Miami Marlins, pending a physical.

The off-season continues to be a quiet one for the New York Yankees: a few rumors, a few minor signings but nothing earth-shattering. The team that is doing its best to shatter the earth is, of course, the Miami Marlins. They have been doing it since before the season ended, when they hung Ozzie Guillen on their Christmas tree, otherwise known as their new stadium.They have added...
The Miami Marlins continue to the big spenders so far of the winter meetings as they snagged starting free agent pitcher Mark Buehrle, signing him to a four-year $58 million contract. The move reunites him with his old manager from the Chicago White Sox Ozzie Guillen. The left-handed Buehrle who turns 33 in March will be pitching in the National League for the first time in his...

Having been teammates with both Ozzie Guillen and Jose Reyes, Mike Cameron believes the dynamic between the new Marlins manager and the new Marlins star will be absolutely fine.
The former Mets center fielder downplayed fears that the mouthy Guillen could be an issue for the sensitive Reyes.
Hanley Ramirez isn't on board with the idea of moving to third base and would rather be traded than switch positions, a "credible source" told Enrique Rojas at ESPNDeportesLosAngeles.com (link in Spanish).
"Hanley doesn't want to play third base, and the Marlins were informed of his thoughts," the source told Rojas. "While he hasn't asked for...
