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".

Pitching coach Don Cooper will manage Chicago's last two games. Bench coach Joey Cora, who was expected to take over, will not report to the team.
