Ozzie Guillen's first year in Miami may be his last, as the Marlins are looking to replace Guillen after a disastrous 2012 season.

The 2012 season was supposed to be a successful campaign for the Miami Marlins, as the club signed Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell. The team also brought Ozzie Guillen on board to be the team's skipper, as they moved into a brand new facility.

Miami finished the season in last place in the NL East,with a 69-93 record and, consequently, Guillen may be out as Marlins skipper. ESPN's Buster Olney reported that the Marlins are "aggressively" trying to replace Guillen.

Guillen's future has been in doubt for several weeks as the Marlins finished off what was arguably the most disappointing team in the Marlins' 20-year franchise history.

"Will they wait to find someone before firing him?" Olney asks, "We'll see"

Guillen is currently owed over $7 million dollars through 2015. Guillen is hoping to be with the Marlins through the life of the contract, but resigned to the fact that his fate is no longer in his hands.

"It's up to them," Guillen said on Tuesday. "I hope not. I like it here, but it is what it is...When your wife is cheating on you, you're the last one to know.

"Do I care? Of course I care. I'm proud. I'm a baseball man. Do I want to be back? Of course I want to be back. If not, I don't sign a four-year contract."

If the Marlins do make a change, look for it to happen sooner rather than later.
