Ozzie Guillen Off to a Rocky Start

...to say the least. Apparently his move to Miami has not been the perfect match it was touted to be last fall.

Yikes.

Just so I'm clear, because he has respect for Castro's ability to maintain a ruthless dictatorship for so long in the face of constant assassination fears and he voiced this opinion he gets a 5 game suspension from baseball? What does his grudging respect for Castro have to do with baseball? lame.

I think it's quite different given that they're in Miami. Had he made this comment in Chicago it would be nowhere near the story that it is. Miami had made a concerted effort to target the Cuban American community down there...I'm not sure if you read in detail the reaction in the area, but it was really bad. They've started protests, clamped down on team boycotts. The Marlins had to do something to show they're paying attention.

A horrible start...this could be a train wreck.

Agreed...this one was particularly bad for the team though. When you have your primary fan base boycotting the team...not good.

It always has been, there just wasn't a media to cover it. They protested the shit out of Baltimore at the outset of the Civil War, they declared Marshall Law!

So Cubans in Miami don't like Castro because he limits free speech.

Then they get all pissed off and penalize a team manager because he is able to express his views in a free society.

Totally logical.

funniest part of the whole ordeal:

"I've got my routine. Game's over, stay in the lobby of the hotel, the hotel bar, get drunk and go to sleep," he told the Palm Beach Post.

"I get drunk because I'm happy because we won or get drunk because I'm very sad and disturbed because we lose. Same routine for 25, 28 years. It hasn't changed. I don't like to go out."
