    Don't blame Ozzie for a bad season. The Marlins are a glorified 'Farm Team'. If they'd had a winning season, they would've sold off all the good players. The Yankees need some help.

    Ozzie was on borrowed time since he was hired by the White Sox, never ,mind the Marlins.

    When his mouth isn't glued shut, the guy is a simple idiot. Nothing to see here, move along.

    Ozzie is worthless.....he was at fault for that team failing...no different than Bobby V in Boston – the manager is there to make the important decisions and it seems like he let the primadonnas of the team do as they wished and didn't have an aura of control....good riddance...I'm sure he can get a job with a Miami Little League team

    Congratulations to the front office for sending this P.O.S. "down the road!"

    Mr. Guillen is a cancer on the sport with his Neanderthal mentality. Those of his barbaric ilk have no place in the game.

    Ozzie has been a disaster and a needless distraction. Maybe his buddies Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez will give him a job.
