Ozzie Guillen Suspended: Former White Sox Manager Banished For Five Games (PODCAST)

On the SB Nation Chicago Podcast, Ricky O'Donnell and Z.W. Martin discuss the recent firestorm controversy surrounding longtime Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. Podcasting genius following the jump.

The controversy started when Guillen told a Time Magazine reporter he respects the resiliency of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro:

"I respect Fidel Castro. You know why? Many people have tried to kill Fidel Castro in the last 60 years, yet that [SOB] is still there."

This morning, word came down that Guillen has been suspended by the Miami Marlins for five games. It's the latest in a long line of incidents for Guillen, who had certainly worn out his welcome in Chicago by the time he was let go as White Sox manager.

Ricky and Z.W. discuss all things Guillen on the podcast.
