Report: Miami Marlins To Suspend Ozzie Guillen For Five Games

The Miami Marlins have announced a five-game suspension for manager Ozzie Guillen for his comments on Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Guillen had told Time magazine that he loves Castro, and respected him for staying in power for so long despite his many enemies. He apologized for the comments to Marlins beat reporters following Saturday’s game against the Reds.

"I will apologize if I hurt somebody's feelings, or I hurt somebody's thought," Guillen told the writers. "I want them to know I'm against everything 100 percent -- I repeat it again -- the way this man (been) treating people for the last 60 years."

The suspension of Guillen came after his comments sparked outrage nationwide. Some officials within the Miami-Dade community have even urged the Marlins ownership to fire Guillen. The 48-year-old former All-Star is slotted to address his controversial remarks today with the Miami media.

The Marlins introduced Guillen as their new manager last September.
