04:11 PM ET 10.23 | The Miami Marlins have announced that they have parted ways with manager Ozzie Guillen after just one season. The Marlins struggled to get anything going this season and their year quickly turned into a disaster. It should come as no surprise that the move has been made. "After careful consideration following the disappointment of the 2012 season, we decided to dismiss Ozzie," the team's president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said. "Our managerial search begins immediately and our hope is that a new manager, along with roster improvements, will restore a winning culture." The Marlins finished in last place in NL East with a 69-93 record this season.

This was an easy decision that could have been made at the end of the season.

Loria is going to wake up screaming for weeks because of the $7.5million he still owes Ozzie. I say Guillen gets put on the 3pm-midnight shift as a janitor at the Marlins offices to earn his pay.

As long as that job doesn't involve traveling through Little Havana, that might work out.

Whoda thunk this relationship would have gone sour?

wiseup: Did Beinfest do this while Loria was out of Town. Guillen is gone But it could be Beinfest working the third shift cleaning the stadium to earn the money they owe Guillen, who is probably laughing all the way to the bank.

He didn't get off to a good start with his Castro rant and it was all down downhill from there.

In the photo, Ozzie looks like he's packed on a few pounds.
