We all know new Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen likes to run his yap-yap, but this time, it has caused him some serious trouble with Cuban-Americans in South Beach. Guillen, who was interviewed by Time Magazine indicated his admiration and respect for Cuban dictator Fidel Castro for staying in power so long, caused an uproar and a Cuban-American advocacy group named Vigilia Mambisa, stated they would boycott the Marlins until the organization fires him. Guillen has since apologized, but addressed the media earlier today.
