Guillen leaks news of new job online

MIAMI — Ozzie Guillen's website apparently leaked the news he has agreed to become manager of the Marlins.

A post Monday night quoted Guillen announcing that he was Florida bound. The blog was taken down a short time later and replaced by a post that discussed Guillen's departure from the White Sox while making no mention of the Marlins.

Tuesday afternoon Guillen tweeted: "Weird to be in miami in this time but very happy ready to go".
