The Spectacular Failure That Was The Ozzie Guillen Marlins Era Is Over, And Everyone’s Better Off That Way
In what was the only fitting end for a disastrous season, the Miami Marlins fired manager Ozzie Guillen today. Blaming manager for all that ails a team is always overly simplistic, but if you saw what happened to the Marlins this year, we think you’d agree that it’s better for everyone that Guillen won’t be back.
Bryce Harper is intense and has an attitude about him that some find abrasive. Ozzie Guillen is intense and has an attitude about him that some find abrasive. The Nationals and Marlins play each other 19 times a year. Given all that, a feud between these two was probably inevitable – and yesterday, the inevitable happened.
Many people had many different reactions to Ozzie Guillen’s comments about Fidel Castro. The reaction of bigwigs at Showtime was probably something like: “Jackpot.”
Recently-suspended Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen just held a press conference explaining his controversial, sympathetic-sounding comments about Cuban leader Fidel Castro, which were magnified in light of Miami’s large Cuban population. See Guillen’s most common refrain from that press conference after the jump.
Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen is scheduled to give a press conference today at 10:30 a.m. in Miami, to again apologize for the disastrous comments he made about Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. But before the presser even took place, the team has announced that Ozzie will be suspended for five games.
Frances Martel on why Ozzie Guillen isn’t just joking about a harmless bearded old guy, but is evoking the executions and disappearances of thousands of people’s parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, and friends.
Sike! as the kids would say — Ozzie Guillen does not love, or respect, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Which is good, because for a second there, it sounded like Ozzie Guillen was saying something crazy, as Ozzie Guillen always does, but now we can all rest assured knowing that Ozzie Guillen did not mean it.
Ready yourself for some fireworks: the Miami Marlins are reportedly close to being named the 2012 subject of The Franchise, Showtime’s docu-series following an MLB team throughout the season. With the team re-branding, welcoming some big new free agents – and most importantly, volatile new manager Ozzie Guillen – they’re a natural fit. If The Franchise is Showtime’s Hard Knocks, Guillen could be the show’s Rex Ryan. Needless to say, that would be fantastic. (Photo via)
Ozzie Guillen took a foul ball to the face in the eighth inning, and then watched his team lose, 2-1, to the Kansas City Royals (on a wild pitch). And yes, that’s pretty much the worst day at the office a major league manager can have.
