On October 23, 2012 — 2012 – Ozzie Guillen is fired after one tumultuous season as manager of the Miami Marlins. Guillen managed to infuriate local fans by praising Fidel Castro in an early-season interview, then picked fights with opponents such as Nationals rookie Bryce Harper, and his own players, most notably closer Heath Bell, while leading his team to a disappointing last-place finish. Guillen had three years and $7.5 million remaining on his contract.
