Miami Marlins suspend manager Ozzie Guillen for pro-Castro comments
Manager Ozzie Guillen has been suspended for five games for comments he made in support of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, the Miami Marlins announced Tuesday.
"The pain and suffering caused by Fidel Castro cannot be minimized, especially in a community filled with victims of the dictatorship," the team said in a statement just prior to Guillen's scheduled press conference.
Guillen, 48, told Time magazine he loves Castro and respects him for staying in power so long. Prior to Monday's game, Guillen said he has suffered sleepless nights because of the comments and wanted to make an apology...

I was so anxious for him to leave Chicago so I could at least root for the white sox from time to time. I've never liked him.
Ef that haters Ozzie. Fidel Castro is my homeboy too.
