Ozzie to Skipper Fish in 2012?By
With the MLB trade deadline swiftly approaching, the only thing hotter than MLB Executives phones lines is U.S. Women’s Soccer Star Alex Morgan.
Despite the flurry of activity around the league and several inquires from teams looking for relief pitching down the stretch, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has elected to stand pat and appears content to do so beyond the July 31st trade deadline for non-waiver trades.
The lackadaisical nature of both the personnel on the field and in the front office has shifted Marlins fans attentions to 2012, specifically who will manage the Fish into brand new Sun Life Stadium?
According to ESPN Insider’s Doug Miitler, current Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen may be the man for the job, throwing more fuel on a fire that continues to burn.
Ozzie’s tell-it-like-it-is and do-as-I-please attitude has clearly worn Sox General Manager Ken Williams patience thin over the years and a grossly underachieving White Sox team could lead to Ozzie’s final act in Chicago.
Guillen’s teams have always played hard for the fiery former shortstop and his nonsense style and undying loyalty could be the spark the talented young Marlins need for a successful 2012 season in their new stomping grounds.
