The Marlins have announced that they have suspended Ozzie Guillen 5 games for his recent remarks to Time Magazine where he expressed his “love” for Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

The Miami Marlins announced today the suspension of manager Ozzie Guillen for five games effective immediately. The Marlins acknowledge the seriousness of the comments attributed to Guillen. The pain and suffering caused by Fidel Castro cannot be minimized especially in a community filled with victims of the dictatorship.

Joey Cora will manage the club in Guillen’s absence.
