Ozzie Guillen will not be in the dugout this weekend when the Miami Marlins play the first full series in their new ballpark. After the new manager's recent comments about former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, that might be for the best.
With Guillen in the midst of a five-game suspension, the Marlins hope their fans remain supportive as they try to overcome a rough first week of the season and continue their home success against the Houston Astros on Friday night.
The opinionated Guillen told Time magazine that he loves Castro and respects the retired Cuban leader for his long reign. Though Guillen later apologized and said he does not love Castro, his initial comments antagonized a large percentage of the team's fan base, especially among Miami's large Cuban population.
While the Marlins slapped Guillen with a suspension through Sunday, they hope his comments won't hinder any interest the club gained by building a new ballpark in the Little Havana neighborhood, chan...
BEST OF MAXIM
You don't have to know Ozzie Guillen well to understand there is nothing inauthentic about him. He is exactly who he purports to be, which has always been part of his appeal, maybe even part of his ability as a baseball manager.
He is one of the few truly unfiltered personalities left in sports, and the Miami Marlins understood this last year when they started negotiating with...
Ozzie Guillen should have known better. Whether or not his comments about Fidel Castro were lost in translation or not, the Miami Marlins manager should have just avoided the questions altogether. Instead, the outspoken Guillen once again put his foot in his mouth, and this time it really blew up in his face. Guillen is facing a ton of criticism in Miami, a community that is known...
Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen's comments professing admiration for Fidel Castro caused a bigger uproar than if the Miami baseball team had spent the entire season in last place.
In the U.S. city with the biggest Cuban-American population, Cuban exiles and politicians decried his remarks. Soon afterward, the Venezuelan manager issued a tearful, public apology. He has been suspended...
Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has been suspended by the team for telling Time Magazine that he “loves” Fidel Castro. Below is Guillen’s quote as it appeared in the online edition of the magazine: “I love Fidel Castro. You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60...Read the Rest...
Given Ozzie Guillen's Fidel Castro publicity, expect his book, Ozzie's School of Management: Lessons from the Dugout the Clubhouse, and the Doghouse to fly off shelves. And Chicago Sun-Times writer...

On Tuesday, the Miami Marlins suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for comments he made to Time magazine concerning Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. "I love Fidel Castro", Guillen said. The reasoning behind Guillen's statement was that so many have wanted to kill Castro over the years and yet, the Cuban dictator has managed to stay in power for more than half a
Ozzie Guillen makes stupid and inappropriate statements. I don’t think there is any way to sugarcoat his behavior over the course of his managerial career. He’s publically supported Cuban dictator Fidel Castro before his recent comments. In addition, he’s used homophobic slurs against a Chicago reporter, spoken out against Arizona’s immigration laws, and spurned a visit...
The Miami Marlins have a new stadium, a new logo and a brand new bag of flaming poop on their doorstep to stomp out. The Marlins should have expected it. And suspending Ozzie Guillen for five games, which the team did Tuesday, isn’t likely to make much of a difference. Guillen has never been a stranger to controversy and he just can’t keep his mouth shut. He’s like Yogi Berra...

I've decided to begin a new segment where I give my perspective on the week that was in sports. I hope to continue this for weeks to come. Sit back and enjoy! Ozzie the Commie? Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended for five games for his comments to Time magazine concerning Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Guillen claimed that he
So I was thinking, why don’t I go and catch a Marlins game. The Astros are in town tonight.
You know, new ball park, new manager (suspended), new unis, a home run sculpture that looks like an ant hill.
How do I get there? Well, that is why I have an iPhone. Siri can find anything, right? Well, my lovely assistant found the new home of the Fish.
Turns out the shiny new ballpark...
Here we are a couple of weeks into the season (depends if you count those weird Mariners A’s games in Japan) and there is no clear cut leader.A lot of big bats haven’t gotten hot yet and a few smaller bats have (Emilo Bonifacio and his .421 avg). Two weeks into the season and Ozzie Guillen is already serving a suspension for his comments about Fidel Castro.ESPN already thinks...
