Marlins Suspend Manager over Castro Comments

The Miami Marlins announced that they have suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for five games effective immediately after telling Time magazine that he has respect for and "loves" Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, the Miami Herald reports.

"In his nine years as a big-league manager, Guillen has spit out insult after insult in his blunt style, offending, among others, gays, opponents of illegal immigration and even fellow Venezuelans. Guillen has managed to get away with his polarizing screeds by offering up contrition after the fact. But not even Guillen can hug the third rail of Miami discourse -- praising Cuban leader Fidel Castro -- without paying a steep price."
