Ozzie: What Marlins need most is consistency
PITTSBURGH -- As trade rumors accumulate, manager Ozzie Guillen expressed confidence in his current roster on Friday, telling reporters that what the Marlins need most is offensive consistency.

"We've got the tools," Guillen said. "The personnel is here. The material is here. But we've got to get it done."

Entering the three-game weekend series against the Pirates, Guillen's club ranks 26th in runs (354) and 24th in batting average (.241).

In their last two games -- both of which were losses -- the Marlins went 1-for-15 with runners in scoring position. On the season, Miami has a .226 RISP average, second-worst in baseball.

"We need more offense," Guillen said. "We need the people here to be consistent."
