A previous thread was about the incident of Ozzie Guillen and his Miami troubles. Seems the troubles are now in the past.
The story has twisted itself today with Ozzie Guillen's dismissal as the Florida Marlins' Manager. The team bought out three years of his remaining contract to let him go. That's a lot of green/pink slip to get in your pay envelope. The man, despite a dismal final record, did lead the team to one of baseball's best ever month records (which meant nothing in the long run). I took it to show he knew how to lead a team despite the turmoil outside the park (see Castro and the Pope thread above). He did lose the team's best bat (Stanton) for over a month with a broken bone and had to struggle after the team traded its franchise player (Ramirez) at around the half way mark. And the game closing pitcher they had invested heavily in turned out to be a rag arm. I thought he'd done well. At least better than the Pope would have, maybe not as well as Castro might have though. Boy, that man's dark cloud sure has a silver lining!
