BEST OF MAXIM
BLIZZARD OF OZZ
A follow-up question about the Fidel Castro incident set off the Marlins manager, causing him to do what he does best: curse up a storm.
Some Astros fans went to a game against the White Sox and dressed in Fidel Castro clothing to tweak manager Ozzie Guillen.
Well, it didn’t take long for Ozzie Guillen to return to the Ozzie Guillen of old. We hadn’t heard much from Guillen, other than an apology, since being suspended for his Fidel Castro comments. So it actually could be argued that Guillen has finally gotten it.
But just as you begin to think that we may be seeing a new and improved Ozzie Guillen, the same old Ozzie Guillen rears...
Marlins PR Guy – “Okay, Mr. Guillen. Now if they ask you any questions about the Castro comments – just say, “No comment.” Can you do that for me, Mr. Guillen?”
Ozzie Guillen – “Oh **** You. Grow up, ************.”
Marlins PR Guy – “Well, as long as you don’t say that we should be alright.”
New White Sox closer Chris Sale will undergo an MRI on his sore left elbow.

The old adage in baseball is momentum is the next day’s starting pitcher. The beauty of the game of baseball is the you can turn the page after a bad night. The season is a marathon, not a sprint. You can’t get too high or too low after one game.
Take last night for example.
The game between the Tribe and the Chicago White Sox was delayed by an hour thanks to a light rain storm...
The Monday Takeaway
When the Marlins embarked on their nine-game road trip to San Francisco, San Diego, and Houston, manager Ozzie Guillen’s team was a disappointing 7-15. Seven games in, Miami has improved to 14-15, going from an early afterthought to within 3 ½ games of the division-leading Nationals.
