Guillen to be traded to Marlins

Quote:
Ozzie Guillen is close to becoming the manager of the Marlins.

A deal between the teams is at hand.

The two teams have been working on a deal for "while now," a league source said.

The news was first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times.

ESPNChicago.com reported Guillen told his players that Monday's game would be his last with the White Sox.

Guillen has been publicly showing interest in going to Florida for several weeks. The teams talked about a trade last winter, but the Marlins balked at the White Sox's request of Logan Morrison at the time. It appears Morrison is not part of the current deal.

Guillen has been at odds with White Sox GM Ken Williams for a few years.

Guillen has been asking for the White Sox to extend his contract. It's been reported that the Marlins are willing to give Guillen a $4 million/year deal for four years. His White Sox salary is reportedly $2 million.

Jack McKeon announced his retirement Monday. SI reported several weeks ago McKeon was not going to be asked back as manager but would remain as a consultant.

Guillen had a year remaining on his deal with the White Sox, necessitating the Marlins to make a trade for him.

Guillen fills the Marlins' goal of getting a big name to manage as they head into a new stadium. He is a resident of Golden Beach in Miami-Dade County.

I didn't realize coaches could be traded.

Marlins fire guillen

Management thought he did a poor job. Some were appalled he delegated so much to cora.

#marlins say they begin search immediately. Ozzie has $7.5M to go over 3 yrs, so miami took a hit there

Loria not happy that he sensed cora was writing lineup card out for ozzie. Loria ended up not being a fan of cora either.

Guillen was Lorias hire. Samson, beinfest never were fans. In end, Lorias agreed.

@mattyports

Larry Beinfest statement: “After careful consideration following the disappointment of the 2012 season, we decided to dismiss Ozzie..."

"...managerial search begins immediately and our hope is that a new manager, along with roster improvements, will restore a winning culture”

Re: Guillen to be traded to Marlins

Loria, Beinfest and Samson need to look in the ****ing mirror.

Ozzie didn't sign Heath Bell's old fat ass to a huge deal. Ozzie didn't hire Eduardo Perez, who somehow turned a lineup full of all-stars and top level prospects into one of the worst offensive teams in baseball. Ozzie didn't refuse to pursue Prince Fielder after Pujols signed with the Angels because he's not Hispanic. You give him one ****ing year to turn things around and can him? A guy who has proven he can turn things around and win a World Series. Give me a break, and take responsibility for the shit job you've done in signing free agents, drafting and player development.

You wonder why we're now searching for our 5th manager since 2006.

Red Sox fans can bitch about our brass all they want, I'd take them in a heartbeat over those idiots running the Marlins.

"Restore a winning culture?" LOL. I get that they have two WS trophies, but not like they ever strung together a bunch of good teams and built anything longer than a season.

This is my second favourite story of the year. After Boston giving Bobby V the gas.

Re: Guillen to be traded to Marlins

What did the Marlins trade to get Guillen? Bet it was more than Mike Abiles to trade your manager to a division rival like the Jays did.

Jhan Marinez and Ozzie Martinez, neither of which are very good prospects.

That's OK, Mike Aviles isn't a very good baseball player.

...yet his .380 slugging percentage is somehow better than basically every Marlin other than Stanton and Reyes.

If you're Ozzie Guillen you need to win baseball games, because your shit gets old real quick if you don't.

At the end of May his SLG% was .500. He looked a lot like Jose Iglesias after that.

Everyone's shit gets old real quick with Loria and his idiot stepson, that's why Joe Girardi won manager of the year in his first season and was still fired. Like I said, those idiots need to look in the mirror. Samson, Beinfest, Hill and especially Eduardo Perez should all go before Ozzie. There's always a scapegoat, but never someone in the 'inner circle'.

What on earth has Eduardo Perez done to be a major league hitting coach (and keep his job) other than have a hall of fame father who just so happens to be a "special assistant" to the GM of the Marlins?

The franchise I root for is a joke run by corrupt fools.
