Ozzie Guillen says he loves Castro and respects and likes Hugo Chavez. Marlins denounce Castro.

Recommended Posts

Ozzie apologizes. Said he initially meant he respected the guy because people have been trying to kill him for 60 years but havent been able to.

Now Ozzie has denounced him as a dictator.

Ozzie is an idiot and nothing he says is of any value other than entertainment.

I've never understood why some like Guillen so much. I know people like guys who speak their mind, but when 90% of what you say is idiotic I'd rather you just keep you mouth shut.

Remember, Ozzie is from Venezuela. Dictators, Socialists and Communists do have their supporters in places like Venezuela and Cuba. He's being called back to Miami and with a Cuban-American group boycotting Marlins games until he's fired, I can see things ending for him shortly.

There's really no excuse for saying something that stupid if you're Ozzie. Of course, when I read it, I thought it sounded like a really bad joke, but that really doesn't make saying it any less stupid.

Thats the way I took it too.

I love Castro too, but the thing is, Ozzie is just dumb. He doesn't really love Castro, he just loves running his mouth.

His lack of understanding of the Marlins' market is shocking.

You would think he of all people might have a understanding of the Latin American market in Florida. It actually is shocking.

It's hard not to talk about this without getting into a heated political debate which is exactly why Ozzie shouldn't go there.

I'm guessing most of the people claiming to hate Castro don't even know why they hate him. It's hard not to talk about this without getting into a heated political debate which is exactly why Ozzie shouldn't go there.

They know why in Miami.

    • It’s already so far out of touch, I doubt fans care if a player is making $20 mm/yr or $40 mm/yr.    They’re already in a whole other universe.   
    • First off, you were being condescending by making us sound like we were a no nothing blog, so stop with all of the hard-ache. Secondly, if you are in baseball and you don't take as many opinions as you can then I would look inward at yourself. Scouts outside the organization have zero to gain by down grading a player to us. The guys I talk to I've had relationships for years. They are an opinion to be added in with other opinions within the organization as well as our scouting. You are 100% correct that opinions are just that. I'm completely fine with anyone having a differing opinion than me, and I don't take offense at someone who says that they don't agree, but there is absolutely no need to disparage someone's opinion as being lesser because you don't agree. I've been doing this for 20 plus years. That doesn't make me infallible or never wrong, but I'll lay my process down against anyone including professional baseball people. That doesn't make me right, but it sure should mean I deserve a little respect and don't get called "blog pages ", whatever the heck that means. It doesn't matter what the team has in store. I feel his most likely outcome is a platoon outfielder because of his inability to hit lefties. Doesn't mean that he might not improve or a team might live with it and play him every day,   
    • That's a hell of a prediction.  These defenses font strike me as good enough for a game like that.   That said, I fully expect McCarthy to outcoach the ever loving hell out of Harbaugh.
    • 1965 = 4,658 / 1.77 1975 = 8,631 / 2.59 1985 = 16,823 / 5.66 1995 = 24,706 / 13.14 2013 = 44,888 / 23.89   Ref: http://roadsidephotos.sabr.org/baseball/earlyticketprices.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Average_Indexed_Monthly_Earnings
    • Hate this rule more than any other in baseball.
    • Must be traded during the season.  So next year Dan trades the pick to try and buoy a mediocre team.  The gambit fails but Dan tells us it's okay because they should have some picks coming from Manny and Jones walking.
    • Have to wonder where it ends? Huge supply of fans willing to spend their money, but how many more price increases are they willing to stomach before they just lose interest? Hard to re-ignite the flame once gone. I'm just guessing here, but it would seem to me that the price of a ticket and all the associated costs to attend pro sporting events has far outpaced the increase in wages in recent years (last 10-20 years?). Haven't done the research, just going off of gut feeling.
