Worst-kept secret in pro sports. I cannot WAIT to see the comedy that ensues from Ozzie trying to co-exist with Jeffrey Loria.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

That's what I don't get. Ozzie is as outspoken as anyone, and that's not the kind of manager Loria/the Marlins generally look for. Then again, if you're in with Loria, you're in; after all, Jack McKeon is more like Ozzie than the yes-men the Marlins have preferred, and Loria loves him..
I think this is the first piece in a busy offseason puzzle for the Marlins. For the first time in several years, I think I'm going to enjoy being a Marlins fan this Winter.

Hall of Fame was a lock already for Mariano, but finishing for the Yankees is about your spot in Monument Park, for him and Jeter. Not that they wouldn't get in eventually, but there's some added cache to being a career Yankee.
