Ozzie Guillen’s been relatively quiet lately — getting suspended in April over his comments about Fidel Castro probably has something to do with his silence — but a 15-5 thrashing in Fenway Wednesday prompted the mouthy manager to say:
“Seven Presidentes (beer) and a sleeping pill and be ready for the job tomorrow.”
A 2-8 stretch dropped the Marlins two games under .500 and seven games back of the NL East-leading Nationals. With the third worst run differential in MLB (-59), spotty pitching (22nd in ERA) and no power (23rd in homers), I’m looking forward to a volatile summer in South Beach for the manager with the volcanic temperament.
