Despite the Miami Marlins disastrous season, manager Ozzie Guillen expects to return in 2013. While managers, especially those as well known as Guillen, are generally given at least two seasons with a team, Miami’s disappointing play and the skipper’s controversial manner could make it one and done for Ozzie.
"At this moment everybody in the organization ought to be up in the air," Guillen said before Tuesday's game against the Atlanta Braves. "It’s not up to me. If it's up to me, I'd love to be here."
"Everybody at this moment should be upset, mad and disappointed," Guillen said.
Guillen did take the blame, "100 percent," and admitted that the reason the Marlins have been bad is because "we’re bad, from top to bottom. I put myself included."
Entering the season with lofty expectations, the Marlins have gone on to post a record of 66-83, putting them in the basement of the National League East.
