Marlins Suspend Manager for Praising Castro

The Miami Marlins on Tuesday suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for five games, effective immediately, for stirring controversy by telling an interviewer, “I love Fidel Castro.”

Guillen made the comments to Time Magazine. He later amended his remarks to say “I respect Fidel Castro. You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but (he) is still there.”

The team plays in a city with a large Cuban-American community, many of whom are rapid anti-Castro activists.
