The always controversial and contentious Ozzie Guillen did it again.
Guillen made comments supporting Fidel Castro, saying,
"Fidel Castro. He's a bull—dictator and everybody's against him, and he still survives, has power. Still has a country behind him. Everywhere he goes they roll out the red carpet. I don't admire his philosophy. I admire him."
After the comments hit the media stream and Guillen saw the backlash from his pro-Castro standpoint, he decided to address the issue, calling for a press conference in Miami.
"I don't want to make a statement, because I think when you make a statement it's a bunch of crap. I want people to look in my eyes, look in my face and see what's going on, tell them what the deal was."
It was nice to see Guillen take responsibility for his actions. Until the press conference aired.
Guillen apologized to the club and his team, but like every other controversial comment he's ever made, Guillen just didn't seem apologetic.
He first blames the Spanish interpreter and then talks about how the suspension was the decision of the management and that it's a shame because he had the Marlins playing good baseball—if you consider a 4-6 record good baseball.
I don't think many were surprised by Guillen's comments given his closet full of sound bites, nor were they surprised by his unapologetic press conference.
Back in February, I wrote an article highlighting the reasons why Miami would regret hiring Ozzie as its manager. It looks like I was right.
