The Last Angry Fan:
It’s Ozzie Guillen, so you know it’s NSFW because of language.
Just Ozzie being Ozzie.
For those of you who didn’t know, or don’t remember because of the human race’s ever shrinking attention span, Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen found himself in some hot water last month when he praised Cuban leader Fidel Castro in an interview with Time magazine. Needless to say this didn’t sit too well with the team’s fans in Miami, most of whom loathe the Cuban dictator, and Guillen was suspended by the team for five game prior to apologizing for his controversial comments.
Fast forward nearly a month and Paul Gallant of 610 Sports Radio in Houston asked Ozzie if the backlash from his comments had died down, and as you heard above, Guillen was at his finest, responding with a resounding “f*cking grow up, motherf*cker.” It’s clear as a bell because, and maybe it’s just me, Ozzie’s English seems to get infinitely better when he’s cussing someone out.
If you ask me, a simple “no comment,
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...
Say what you want about the White Sox offense, but the pitching is second to none. Well actually, the Sox pitching is second only to three teams since they command the fourth lowest American League team ERA. Regardless, that stat is something to be proud of.
The team’s early success on the mound is especially profound considering the bullpen situation during Spring Training. Before...
36-year-old Paul Konerko is off to a tremendous start this season, hitting .347/.426/.614 with six bombs, 14 runs, and 17 RBI. His value might never be higher.Paulie has hit over .300 for the past two seasons and he’s off to a great start in 2012. However, it’s highly unlikely that he will sustain a BABIP over .360. The question is, when his AVG drops, how far will it go? Konerko...
It is time to give Jake Peavy the respect he deserves
Jake Peavy coasted for six innings before giving up a run in the seventh and Adam Dunn homered, leading the Chicago White Sox to an easy 8-1 win over the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night and a split of their four-game series.
Peavy (4-1) allowed seven hits, struck out five and had little difficulty with the Indians, who didn't get a runner past second...
Addison Reed (credits below) This week we take a look at another two rookies out in Oakland and the reason why in Boston they are starting to ask the question: Kevin who ? RP- ADDISON REED (CHI SOX)- Reed has been lights out in Chicago this year in his 9 innings of work. Reed has struck out 12 batters, has a 0.00 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. Manager Robin Ventura removed one rookie...

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.
Here are the Marlins’ runs allowed totals during this road trip: 1...
We hear from managers all the time about how they are “hired to be fired.” Well, we’re still early in the 2012 season but here are a half-dozen who already have earned a pink slip and a free pass out of town.
Ozzie Guillen is a head-case. He has been a one his entire career. Combine that with his pro-Castro rant coupled with his penchant for being a loose cannon and his team...
