As most of you know by now, fiery Miami Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen put his foot in his mouth again this week, allegedly telling a reporter “I love Fidel Castro,’’ in an interview with Time magazine. Guillen has since apologized for those comments, but that hasn’t stopped mushrooming outcry from South Florida’s large Cuban immigrant population that doesn’t quite share that sentiment. For their part, the Marlin’s organization took quick action, suspending their skipper for five games, but that may do little to quiet the fan outrage.
We had our crack research staff comb our files for other comments Ozzie may have made over the years that some also might consider, well, controversial.
