Ozzie Guillen suggests that a roster shakeup is due for the Marlins
Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen is at it again. The controversial manager once again failed to reel in his tongue in regards to potential upcoming roster moves that could shake up the franchise.
“If we’re going to be younger here, then OK, what kind of young team are we going to have?” Guillen said on Thursday. “Are we going to go forward, or are we going to stay the same? If we’re going to go young, just go young, and suffer for a couple of years and see what happens. Or are you going to compete, and make a mix [of veterans with young players]? Then who’s coming here to make the mix? It’s all a process.”
The comments are rational and far from his usual WWE-style rants and raves but they point to a problem within the organization.
Do the Marlins now what type of baseball team that they want to be?
Do they have a direction?
If so, they might want to fill in their manager who was tossed from their game against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
“I have been ejected 27 times but that one was a weird one,” Guillen said. “The excuse he is going to make is I was throwing water at him. I never did. I just threw water on the field then some of the players were telling me I got kicked out of the game.”
Even in defeat Ozzie at least keeps in interesting.
With a record of 57-69, the Marlins are in the cellar of the NL East. When the team remade themselves over into a Technicolor dream they never planned for this.
