As Trent wrote on Monday, defrocked Marlins closer Heath Bell broadsided Ozzie Guillen in the press by saying he doesn't respect the team's first-year manager. Well, a day has passed, and now it's Guillen's turn to speak all too freely to those who will listen.
On Tuesday, Guillen appeared on Dan LeBatard's Miami radio show to address, among other things, his icy relationship with Bell. Primed for fireworks, Marlins players huddled 'round the radio to hear their manager say things like this:
