    Ozzie Guillen struck out big time just days after the baseball season began. The Marlins manager is scheduled to speak in Miami Tuesday morning after a Time magazine article quoted him remarking “I love Fidel Castro,” then offering some explanation.

What may have been some misguided bluster will have serious ramifications, with ESPN reporting that Guillen has been suspended by the Marlins for five games.
