Ozzie Guillen suspended for speaking his mind

Manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended for at least five games by the Miami Marlins and Major League Baseball for saying:
"I respect Fidel Castro. You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but that mother fucker is still here."
Clearly if you work for Major League Baseball and the Miami Marlins, the U.S. Constitution doesn't apply to you.

This isn't Guillen's first time in hot water for speaking his mind. And it hasn't always been positive. He's used a homophobic slur against a sportswriter, praised Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez and declined to join his former team’s traditional post-championships White House visit, among other flare-ups.

I suspect that this isn't the end of the story. The Gusanos in Miami won't let it go until they get their pound of flesh.
