OZZIE MOCKS RUMORS OF POSSIBLE TERMINATION
Tue, 25 Sep 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Ozzie Guillen has heard the rumors that his job might be in trouble.

“The Marlins manager said.”That’s the very last thing going through my mind every day, if I am going to have a job next year. I’m going to have a job. I’m not sure if it’s handling the Marlins, but I’m going to have a job. I don’t know if it is managing in the major leagues, but I will have a job.”

Miami dropped to 66-85 with a mistake-filled 7-3 loss to the N.Y, falling 1½ games behind Mets in the battle for last place in the National League East. Not exactly what Miami owner Jeffrey Loria anticipated after hiring Guillen last fall and then spending $191 million in a 5-day span in the offseason to sign All-Stars Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell.

The team renamed from the Florida Marlins, moved into a $634 million retractable-roof ballpark and agreed to be in a Showtime fact series, “The Franchise.” The season started coming apart when Guillen was suspended for 5 games in April following comments praising Cuban leader.

“If Jeffrey thinks I don’t do the job I should do, it’s not the 1st time he fired the manager,” Guillen related. “I know if it’s going to be easier for him to fire another one. I don’t fret about that. I am expecting to be back A hundred percent.”

As the team did not contend, the Miami traded Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante, Anibal Sanchez, Edward Mujica and Gaby Sanchez. Guillen recounted all the decision-makers in the organization were to blame for the poor record.

“We all failed and all of us are responsible about this,” he claimed. “It’s not about that guy, this guy, that guy, this guy. We all failed. We all thought stuff was meant to be better for us. It was not. It wasn’t. We may have picked the wrong blokes. We might pick the wrong team. We might have spent the money on the wrong people. Just name it.” Football odds

Still, he refused to say dollars were given to the incorrect players.

“I didn’t spend money on anybody. … I spend my money on women. I don’t spend my money on guys,” he revealed. “At the winter meetings, the expectation was really very, extremely high, with the players, with the executive, with the new park, with the new logos, with new faces and new things. Well, perhaps we learn from the experience. It is not about new and expectation, it’s about how folk perform on the field, and we must work out to choose the right people, the right players to perform on the field.”

He maintained all possible went wrong this season.

“No pitching. No training. No managing,” he claimed. “When the manager makes a move and the move no work out the proper way, you are a dumb manager. That’s the way it is. And when you’re in last place, you are very dumb because every move you make throughout the year and every lineup you write, it was the wrong lineup.”
