The Miami Marlins stumbled to a 69-93 record and last-place finish in the NL East, and when asked about where the problems started, manager Ozzie Guillen said that everyone in the organization shared responsibility. "Let's start from the top," Guillen remarked. "Front office failed. Ozzie failed. Coaching staff failed. The players failed. Everybody failed."
The Marlins spent a lot of money during the offseason to bring in free agents Mark Buehrle, Heath Bell and Jose Reyes. But the season did not go as the Marlins had hoped, and Guillen, who just finished his first season as Miami's manager, could be on his way out.
Offensively, the Marlins finished 2012 ranked 15th in the National League in runs scored, 13th in batting average, 13th in on-base percentage and 12th in slugging. They were also 12th in the league in both earned run average and runs allowed.
