The suspension by the team takes effect immediately. It was announced Tuesday shortly before Guillen held a news conference to apologize again and explain his remarks, which caused a public backlash.OH! I understand that Florida is home to a significant Cuban exile community. Perhaps many of them groan at the compliments of Fidel Castro that have been thrown about over the years.
Guillen told Time magazine he loves Castro and respects the retired Cuban leader for staying in power so long. At least two local officials said Guillen should lose his job.
I wonder what prompted these comments and don't misunderstand Guillen has the unfortunate tendency to be very controversial at times. This is just one of those times he's very controversial.
