I am so glad he is no longer with the WS for this reason alone. Will always love 2005 but he can't keep his mouth shut.

Seriously? How can anyone be stupid enough to say that in Florida of all places?

He may want to move. The backlash from the Cuban community there is not going to be pretty.

What a ****ing idiot, lol. Then again he's an elite Venezuelan and loves him some Hugo Chávez so of course he's going to love Castro.

You're being too hard, on the guy. He's had numerous hits throughout the years. His Black Sabbath years were EPIC. Even the duet he had with Lita Ford was pretty cool...

Wait. What? Baseball? Never mind...:puff:

As someone who's the son of a Cuban refugee and whose grandparents were part of the Miami community for 40 years, this is a very touchy area. It's complicated and the exiles get very emotional about it.

I think he's entitled to his opinion.

He's also entitled to being fired for being a Dumb A$$.

Ozzie is an idiot. Anyone else here besides me think Ozzie was just trying to give Hugo Chavez a coded compliment by praising Castro? Or, is he just that stupid?

Ozzie is the kind of person who is always looking to play the victim for something, so he can't stand things being quiet and mellow, so if he has to say something stupid to get his poor me crap going, he will do so.

why do people get 1st amendment mixed up in our own country. He isnt going to jail or be thrown out of the country. He might be fired from a private enterprise because he upset the very same people that buy into their product. Vientamese and Cubans have a hatred for their former country like no other. Ozzie is a complete moron. We also had the Red Sox (or was it Blue Jays former manager?) former manager tell everyone he was a vietnam vet and got canned for it. It was lying that did him in. Sure it was first amendment rights happening but that didn't help him in the private sector.

You can be canned in most states for just about anything. Personally I think more people should speak their mind instead of the same old BS. I am sick of hearing the poor poor pitiful me card. If i was Ozzie. I would have never apologized. But then again I am smarter then that and probably wouldn't have said it.

I doubt you have any idea what you are talking about so why should I.

I think you are missing the point. Ozzie is coaching the one MLB team that is in South FL, Miami area that is the center point for Cuban-American refugees. In other words, by Ozzie saying this he has provoked the fan base that will support the team. This comes at a bad time as the team is trying to build a new stadium and needs as much fan support as possible.

So in essence, he just made a really stupid remark. If he said this as the manager of the Rockies, it probably would not be that big of a deal. Denver is not the central hub of Cuban American refugees.

I agree, but I don't agree that he should be suspended with no pay. He made a remark that I understand is "insensitive," but in context, they aren't all that horrible. In fact, it seems more historical than anything. he's not claiming he supports Castro's methods, just respects his ability to keep power despite heavy world dissent.

People are too sensitive.

The very fact that Ozzie is Venezuelan and Hugo Chavez is Venezuelan has a lot to do with his thinking or comments IMHO. Again, he's in little Cuba surrounded by a huge population of Cuban Americans that hate Castro (but love baseball). Is he really that stupid? Notice that Ozzie is now trying to denounce Hugo Chavez.

why Ozzie? Why praise Castro and now denounce Chavez? Is it because your little backhanded compliment has backfired?

Yeah that's what I found hilarious. Whatever far left-wing friends he had he has now proceeded to piss them off too with his backpeddling. Way to cover all your bases, Ozzie! Hilarious!

He should have just apologized with a statement and gone back to work.

not being Cuban or living in Little Havana i do not see his comments in the same light or taken as personal as the people living there or have been affected by Castro...i do understand their hatred and protests though...if he had said this as the Mariners manager it wouldnt have been so touchy. Saying it in the heart of "free" Cuba was not smart at all...This will get worse for Ozzie and i expect a firing to come soon...Or i expect the usual 1/4 filled stadium they are known for in August...even though its a new stadium, theyll bring out the tarps to cover seats earlier than expected this year.
