The Miami Marlins won their last season against the Houston Astros, and now they open up a series against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday in Miami.

The big story from this game is that the Marlins will get their manager back, Ozzie Guillen. Ozzie just served a five game suspension for his comments about Fidel Castro, but now he returns to the dugout. What makes it even more interesting is that the Marlins will be at home, so he will get introduced to the home crowd, and we will get to see their reaction. A lot of the groups he offended agreed to boycott Marlins games, so the crowd may not be as overwhelmingly negative as one might expect.

We'll have plenty more on this series throughout the next few days on SB Nation Tampa Bay, so keep it locked to this StoryStream for all the latest news and updates.
