The controversial Marlins manager speaks on a variety of topics.
With a few poorly chosen words, Ozzie Guillen nearly lost his dream job.
Quoted in Time Magazine saying he “loved” Fidel Castro, Guillen set off a firestorm in Miami’s Cuban-American community. Angry protestors and grandstanding local politicians alike called for the Miami Marlins to fire Guillen just a few games into his tenure.
His heartfelt apology broke new ground in a speak-first, think-later career. The resulting five-game team suspension also left him chastened, but not fundamentally changed, bloodied but not defeated.
Expect the Miami Marlins' Hanley Ramirez to return to fantasy superstar, MVP candidate status.
The Marlins appear to be starting from scratch in 2012. But the reality is that the 15-year-old team with two World Series titles has a flashy new, eye-catching paintjob but will be powered by the same engine once again this year.
Adam Dunn has had an epically bad season for the Chicago White Sox
Adam Dunn used to be a good baseball player. He was one of those guys that you penciled in for 35-40 homers every year. Sure, eh struck out a few times, and sure, you'd never mistake his batting average for Ichiro's, but he was a guy who did one thing (hit homers) and he did it well.
