07:35 AM ET 11.02 | The Ozzie Guillen experiment has failed in Miami, and the Marlins couldn't have chosen to go in a more different direction with their new manager if they had tried. After a year of turmoil with outspoken manager Ozzie Guillen, the Marlins have hired soft-spoken former catcher Mike Redmond to be the club's new skipper. Redmond was one of the most liked players in the locker room during his 12-year career. A large part of that career was spent behind the plate in Miami, as Redmond served as a Marlins catcher from 1998-2004, winning a World Series with the team in 2003. Redmond then spent four years with the Minnesota Twins backing up Joe Mauer before finishing his career with the Indians.
