Guillen is one and done

MIAMI (AP) - Ozzie Guillen's mouth got him in trouble seven months ago. The Florida Marlins' record got him fired.

     Guillen has been let go after just one season with the team. The Marlins went 69-93 during a campaign in which Guillen praised Fidel Castro, another factor in his dismissal. Team president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said the positive comments about Castro didn't help the team or Guillen.

     Miami's last-place finish in the NL East came after the team signed free-agent All-Stars Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell to contracts worth a combined $191 million. 

     The Fish still owe Guillen $7.5 million for the three years remaining on his contract.

     Miami's next manager will be the fifth for owner Jeffrey Loria since early 2010.
