Marlins dismiss Ozzie Guillen

MIAMI – The Miami Marlins announced today that they have dismissed manager Ozzie Guillen. The announcement was made by Marlins' President of Baseball Operations Larry Beinfest.

“After careful consideration following the disappointment of the 2012 season, we decided to dismiss Ozzie,” said Beinfest. “Our managerial search begins immediately and our hope is that a new manager, along with roster improvements, will restore a winning culture.”

The Marlins went 69-93 in 2012, finishing last in the NL East.
