(MIAMI) — As the underachieving Miami Marlins currently sit in last place in the NL East, their manager Ozzie Guillen is already changing the team’s aura as they head into the offseason after next month.
“Same philosophy, less bull,” Guillen said when asked Wednesday about the team’s recent star players being sidelined. “That’s going to work better.”
First baseman Logan Morrison is currently on the disabled list with a knee injury and will undergo an operation next week. Morrison nursed the same injury to start the season and has only played 93 games this season.
“It’s time for this organization to move on and be tough on the players,” Guillen said. “We’re not going to go through, ‘OK, let’s wait for another month. It might be better.’ It never happens.”
Utilityman Emilio Bonifacio and reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo have also battled the injury bug and are both on the disabled list.
