Let the Ozzie Guillen apology tour commence

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer
Ozzie Guillen

As you may have heard, Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen, who is famous in part for saying controversial things, recently said a controversial thing. Specifically, Guillen managed to say nice things about Cuban dictator emeritus Fidel Castro, who was and is, by any objective standard, a brutal despot. As CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman has observed, Guillen's comments are particularly ill advised considering the demographics of the city he now represents.

So now the inevitable: Guillen, following his team's game on Monday, will return to Miami on the off day and publicly apologize for saying things like "I love Fidel Castro." The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Guillen's act of contrition will be Tuesday at Marlins Park. "If [people] are disappointed or upset with what I said, I don't blame them, but I'm with them," Guillen has already said. "I lived in Miami for 12 years. I know exactly what [Castro] means to the town."

Perhaps, then, Guillen's forthcoming public apology, so long as he manages to stay on script, will put this to rest. Until he says something else, of course. So give it two weeks.
