2. FLORIDA MARLINS
MANAGER: Ozzie Guillen, first season (overall 678-617, .524 )
GM: Michael Hill
STADIUM: Marlins Park (37,442)
OUTLOOK: The most drastically changed team from over the winter, the Marlins open their new ballpark with high expectations and arguably the talent to live up to them.
CONCERN: There?s much combustibility here, from Guillen to owner Jeffrey Loria to SS Jose Reyes? health to 3B Hanley Ramirez?s happiness.
BOTTOM LINE: They?re too big to fail. They made too many helpful moves over the winter for things to completely blow up like they did last year.
