Will Ozzie Guillen stick around? Time will tell.
With a beautiful new ballpark opening, 2012 was supposed to be a different Marlins. No longer designated the "Florida" Marlins and ready to take the City of Miami by storm by renaming the team the "Miami" Marlins and changing their uniforms to Miami's flag's colors. In came free agents Jose Reyes, Heath Bell, and Mark Buehrle and manager Ozzie Guillen was added from the Chicago White Sox. Even some Albert Pujols talk floated its way through Miami. This year was supposed to be different.
2012 started out badly even before it began. The signing of shorstop Jose Reyes meant that Hanley Ramirez would have to switch to playing third base. Nobody bothered to give Reyes a call before the signing to ask him, and Ramirez was "not on board" with the plan. Ramirez would eventually play third base, but it was not a happy time for him in Miami.
