Miami Marlins suspend manager Ozzie Guillen for five games

Miami Marlins suspend manager Ozzie Guillen for five games

Hyped by on April 10, 2012 Website:

Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen managed the team to a 6-2 victory in Citizens Bank Park on Monday afternoon, promising to fly home to address his recent statements about Cuban dictator Fidel Castro as soon as possible. It turns out Guillen will not be returning to Philadelphia until June 1, the next time the Marlins are in town.

The Marlins announced just prior to a news conference in Miami that the club had suspended their new manager, just a week in to his first regular season on the job, for five games. The suspension is effective immediately.
