Ozzie Guillen: Why this controversy, now?
Ozzie Guillen is brash, but praising Castro apparently goes too far
Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen’s five game suspension for claiming his “love’’ for Cuban leader Fidel Castro shows nothing more than that sports justice is a strange and deeply disconcerting form of jurisprudence. Apparently, you can hurl a homosexual slur against a newspaper columnist, as Guillen did in 2006, but praising Castro is just plain unforgivable. What’s most intriguing is understanding why this controversy, now.
