Ozzie Guillen To Take His Talents To South Beach In 2012
- Updated: September 26, 2011
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen has been let go and will manage the Florida Marlins next season. Florida and Chicago are in the final stages of completing a deal that would send Guillen to the 2012 Miami Marlins. The announcement is expected to be made following the Blue Jays v White Sox game on Monday night.
Earlier in today, Marlins manager Jack McKeon said he would not return in 2012. Ozzie Guillen’s contract is set to expire after the 2012 season, Ozzie has publicly stated he wouldn’t return for the final year of his contract unless he gets an extension. After a meeting early on Monday with White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf, Ozzie shared he came away from the meeting with “Nothing”. Guillen was a Third Base coach for the Marlins in 03′ and has maintained in Golden Beach Florida ever since. This move would be fitting to draw attention to the club as they make the move to a new stadium in Miami next season.
Guillen has been the White Sox manager since 2004. He compiled a 652-592 record and helped lead the club to a World Series title in 2005, their first since 1917.
