Ozzie Guillen - Luckiest Bigot in Baseball

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.

Darin Ruf has hit 8 HR in 14 Dominican League games.

Yes, we all wonder will Ruf be able to even play passable defense in the outfield. However, we already know that Dom Brown barely can. For having all those "tools" he really doesn't use any of them. Brown is a bad defensive outfielder, doesn't hit for average or power, doesn't use his speed to steal bases...he looks like nothing more than a 4th outfielder right now. That's not to say he couldn't figure it out and have everything click, but that just doesn't appear to be the case anymore.

Ruf is doing everything he possibly can to get a fighting chance at regular playing time next season with the Phils. And I hope he does. A season of .265/.800, 20 HR, 75 RBI seems doable.

Couldn't agree more about Ruf. Potential is just potential- and Brown rarely seems to play up to his!

If the Phils could win World Series with guys like Luzinski and Burrell in LF, Ruf certainly isn't going to kill them defensively. Phils need power on the right side and Ruf certainly should have a crack at it

Stay Safe Cory and Carson and your families.

Stay safe everyone especially FuriousBall.

I wonder what will happen to Cape May and how high the water will be on the Rocky Steps at the Art Museum.

Ruf will be fine. Go look at "The Bull".

We need a Centerfielder. We gots lots for the corners.

Nix and Ruffff in LF - Brown and Mayberry in RF

Question for 2013 -

Willing to bet serious money say $1000

2013 payroll

The Phillies have Cliff Lee ($25 million), Roy Halladay ($20 million), Howard ($20 million)

At the end of 2013 take money earned - subtract how much they should have earned (independent board), take the net and see whoever wastes the most money. If you picked that person you lose.

I'm rooting for Ruf- he's a feel good story of a late bloomer. We need at least one free agent outfielder to have even a passable lineup though, especially considering no mater how hard we want to believe otherwise, Galvis will be our 3b. I like Pagan.

LF- Ruf
CF- Pagan
RF- Brown/Mayberry Platoon
Nix off the Bench
