Ozzie Guillen’s Fan Club of 1

Having grown up in South Florida, & counting a handful of Cuban-Americans as some of my best friends dating back to high school, I think it’s safe to say that this controversy will forever haunt Guillen in the Miami market. Ozzie can stand in front of as many microphones as he wants, but I assure you that it will mean very little to that segment of the South Florida community. It is a very proud & passionate people, so while the retired hedge fund manager in Boca will forgive & forget Ozzie’s sentiment, the Cuban-Americans down there will always think of the Marlins manager as an untrustworthy buffoon, to put it mildly. There will be a presser at 10:30, held by Miami’s front office, to announce what action the club will take. My best guess? Maybe a 10-15  game suspension. Guillen will also have to commit to meet with leaders in the community, so that he has a better grasp as to why saying anything positive about Castro in Miami fuels so much disdain. Even then, I doubt Cuban-Americans will ever say the name of the manager of the Marlins,  without the tone being one of complete disgust.
