    2-FACED OZZIE in hot water AGAIN...Isn't VALENTINE now the OZZIE of the AL?

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/7787381/miami-marlins-ozzie-guillen-apologizes-fidel-castro-comment OZZIE seems to have a lot of selective amnesia issues esp with dictators. praises castro then reads his words and goes into spin mode. oh i work in miami and i'm praising CASTRO, better talk about being concerned HOW it will make all these cubans feel, rather than self-examine myself as to y i feel so great about him in the first place. can just see ozzie going on a baseball tour to israel and praising the efficiency of HITLER and being shocked that some are initially annoyed about it.. oh, my bad, i apologize.. ok, all's forgiven and now let's start the entire process all over again!

    in the past, he was chummy with chavez of velenzuela. then he got convenient amnesia as he condemned him post-facto and talked about how he had never met him.. oops, turned out he was interviewed twice on air in velenzuela in 2005 after winning his world series title. like the GOP here, he must forget of that little invention called VIDEOTAPE and that it captures your words and images forever. i can hear romney now: oh i didnt say all my friends own baseball and nascar teams. oh i never said i don't care about the very poor... i digress!

    Responding to yourself is kind of pathetic.

    It was sort of inevitable.  You hire the most running-of-the-mouthiest Venezuelan guy you know to try and entice the Cuban ex-pat community to come to baseball games, you gotta know that, in the modern media environment, you are going to have to deal with some s&*t.

    Ozzie Guillen keeps things interesting, lively, and fun. He's also Latino. That's why the Marlins named him manager. He's a good fit for that team.

    Ozzie is the manager version of Manny, unfortunately they both have a few screws loose which is too bad because they both had a lot to offer to the game.

    Terrible thing to say about a brutal dictator who killed political prisoners in Cuban jails and to hold the Cuban people under machine gun rule for so long. Stupid thing to say in relation to what the Cuban people have had to endure under Castro. Ozzie is an idiot and always will be. The only thing he was right about was Jenks as a player.

    Ozzie knows baseball.  Everything else is foreign.

    By the way, Castro treated Cubans a lot better than Battista. He didn't take over the country in a coup.  Revolutions happen for a reason.  And it's not like Battista didn't inprison politcal prisoners or torture and execute Cubans.

    But it was pretty stupid of Ozzie to say anything at all about Castro.

    so he said it, big deal. Now those exiles are calling for him to be fired.... sorry but an apology is one thing, taking his job for freedom of speech is dead wrong.

    Ozzie simply cannot keep his mouth shut. My brother is a W. Sox fan, and thought he was great. I thought his act is just about as old as "you can put it on the board...." etc. Only W. Sox fans liked him, and not all of them. I don't even see where he's that great a manager to be honest. Have little use for him, and I think it's funny to see  his true colors coming out. Now he'll try to disguise them again, but let's be honest, do you really say something like that if you don't mean it? Any appology will amount to "I'm sorry you disagree", no matter what he may actually say.

    I think Ozzie is a pretty good manager , but a political idiot. Unfortunately , some Sox fans on this forum are so far to the left that they actually agree with his opinion of this murderer. It says something about a country when it's citizens are forbidden to leave. Castro is hated in Miami for a very good reason.

    It is no surprise that you are a Castro lover , given that disgusting signature that you use. For shame.

    Anyone who says they love Castro should move to Cuba and live under him for a while. Lincoln had a great argument 150 year ago thats applicable. He said that so many people argued what a great thing slavery was, yet he had never seen one of them volunteer to be a slave. Its like all these politicians and movie stars that act like socialism is such a wonderful thing, yet they themselves sure as heck won't share their money will they? And kinda like Ted Turner saying we need to decrease the world's population by 75% or whatever figure it was he said. Really? Ok Ted, you first! Show us you mean it!

    I said this on the other discussion, but I feel Guillen should apologize only if he truly regrets saying it. I hate these "I'm sorry to those offended" non-apology apologies.

    ozzie will be FIRED in the next 5 days. marlins simply can't take the risk with him anymore for you can be sure there will be another incident sooon! Good riddance. marlins will look for an exit strategy from his contract with CAUSE. Freedom of speech is a relationship of the individual and the government. private corpoarations do not have to put up with the same standards. Corporations set all kinds of speech clauses and rules. If this was not Ozzie, THAT person would be GONE!  Enough is enough. If the marlins do not let him go, Bud should get involved and ban him for a year as he did with madge Schott.
