Before last season, the Miami Marlins signed Ozzie Guillen to a four year, $10 million dollar contract. In return, he alienated his own fans by praising Fidel Castro, he alienated his own players by telling everyone that Giancarlo Stanton was the only reason for fans to show up, and he lead the team to one of the most disappointing seasons in team history.
His reward for this terrific year of work??? Well, $7.5 million over three years to sit on a beach.
Guillen had this to say about his firing on Twitter - "To the fans that support me and for those who are happy as well my love and respect to you. In life there are worse things and I have experienced them. I have lived through bad moments and I will get through this with support."
Yeah, he'll get through this with support... and $7.5 million. Some guys just can't catch a break...
Good riddance Ozzie. I hope I don't see him around a baseball field anytime soon. Take your hate and ignorance elsewhere.
