If you look at stroke you'll be out on your -- -- that's the message being sacked by the Miami Marlins he told Matt -- again.
He be sitting up the next five games after telling time magazine quote I -- Fidel Castro.
Needless to say that statement upset Florida's many Cuban Americans who hate Castro.
As intensely as Jesse joys loves hot topic as a Marlins put it the pain and suffering because what they'll -- cannot be minimized especially in the community.
Filled with victims of the dictatorship.
So what did Ozzie say he -- Castro well my guess is -- claim he was misinterpreted.
Or that he was speaking in Spanish or something.
It wasn't he's determined -- about us what that's what I mean this bodies when he asked -- -- bodies I want to say something almost taking a Spanish.
And this -- I can now more leave somebody hurt.
So many people -- -- -- -- Still life.
An honest mistake -- distilled Ozzie knows he did the wrong thing and that he needs -- cleared up and let the Cuban community know he's truly behind them.
I did the wrong thing I have to clear -- to not let let -- all Jewish community Powell.
Does listen earlier today we set our own Bill Schulz data Miami to get more thoughts from -- Anybody on the first pitch we'll talk to bring just toys and just and I'll admit that looks like debates what happened -- -- crime.
We have a thing where they're gonna have birds made that day that you won't -- -- -- joy.
Just an -- and act now diet that you so much appreciated that and -- battle on allies from home.
Interstate we'll put that -- look like it was from 2009 Chicago but still good advice don't -- -- stadium.
He's well I heard repeatedly that deplete me again we could -- he said.
Make sure you both have a.
And -- yeah.
That's not happy being yet -- -- it stops a lot good to have you here.
Thank you had so it's a pleasure to see your happy happy face Tom do you think it in the right thing here by suspending him.
I mean it's it's you know there's a lot of Cubans there into Cuba.
I mean to those guys it's like Hitler I mean right I mean it.
And for good reason -- -- Horrible torture and -- locked up homosexuals would have been re education camps and being called by you know Ozzie called sports -- And -- a lots of other stuff what.
Private business that get there with a yes they think the do you think they should keep America that they fire because it's a private visit to could be the art whatever that if they feel their -- but I guess he helps them win.
I'm more upset that the stadium is the biggest group of welfare paid its grip and off the taxpayers for 500 million dollars for them in the paying -- the stadium.
What is the good the argument for the stadium -- -- that brings money in them sent -- argument that's what they aren't here yet bring some money and but much more goes out doesn't bring in 500 million of the taxpayer.
Good point Jesse do you really think he meant to (%expletive) off a lot of people.
What do you think he actually got on get IE I I want everybody in Florida be mad at me like police stopped getting offended people all the time I mean there -- -- first heard like -- did you hear that article in time magazine where somebody said that Castro was lovable and I was like what are said that the White House to the State Department -- from Powell club barely literate Venezuelan baseball coach -- -- -- it's.
Apple who would've thought that he wouldn't have Cogent -- sensitive understanding but a local politics.
Blake look here's the it Bill Maher said this recently at out of jail where he said that like the people actually contributes.
Are too busy to -- and complain and like try to get somebody fired and so it's like people have nothing to do that's what they do they like all this is my chance to be offended.
And get someone fired and I feel like I've done something you know because.
All trying to say is is that my great grandmother who was tied to the railroad tracks and kidnapped by a man with the exact same mustache is mr.
-- I'm not I'm writing letters every day -- Fox News try to get him fired no I deal with it but -- coming from I.
As usual coming from a man he's dressed like a war vet I thought -- I -- waiting for them already can't keep up with but the like itself led appreciate that coming from guy looks like a pedophile violin teacher.
Good to see you as always at so there's a couple of Cuban American groups calling in the fire which the team says it won't do I mean I use I agree actually because I'm.
A -- I agree with bowl Jessie and John doesn't think can't say that that -- -- a -- that.
So I -- -- but Jesse.
And done and I'll tell you why I do agree that the team it's -- private company they can fire him if they choose to do so.
But I also think this whole idea of being offended in the second someone offends you then they should be fired is a little bit ridiculous -- -- -- supposed to be given out.
If you -- an umpire or you break the rules that way.
He didn't break any laws he didn't break any rules -- -- game with a controversial opinion and he should be able to do that.
People in general to be able to do that in this country of all of them without having to worry that they're gonna have to pay a -- -- lose their job every time they -- -- in that.
The general public doesn't -- the only thing is OK I get an idea I'm I'm tired of this apology brigade bill or this apology hysteria but at the same time.
I wasn't tortured under Castro so I don't know -- about the general public it's more about the people in that.
Putting money into that community which is where the team isn't the -- -- -- look.
He screwed up and.
They could have reacted more -- because they're only trying to market to Cuban Americans because that's -- huge part of the old of the Miami area and they already Begin to baseball and there's a big reasons they haven't -- more people who had had they want the World Series and still not been.
Still he could have actually gotten a boycott which would have made them fire or MD Neal -- to use the vernacular yeah I.
Yeah Google -- -- when you do to compare his.
We all just universally agree that there is no Hitler but Hitler did it -- someone else but Hitler is only as bad as Hitler no one can really come up.
People were uninstall months -- got.
Almost stall stall if they were bad and they're now away now without -- Our balance that out it was his own that brand -- bad wow yeah -- -- their boilerplate but.
He was trying to make a really bad joke he wasn't saying that he loves Fidel it is bad it is -- unfunny way we -- trying to -- -- his resiliency.
Because he'd been everyone and their mothers tried to kill Fidel from the CIA to beard means and the guys still lives on it's a city admire that means that you load the man.
It that I don't.
They'll look a little touch and you get any inkling that didn't happen and uploading at the mountains it is an attempt to offend anybody to it -- -- people to.
You know he wasn't trying to him you know and -- -- right here he just expressed an opinion respectfully but he wasn't really OK I don't think it was an actual opinion.
I think it was like that -- you just making the comment.
Reflect but the thing is even a brilliant.
Indeed it's -- codec -- what's not said if it's.
A company -- got to look out for their best interest.
At this -- the company they got -- -- -- have you ever ever in your entire life I heard somebody else you know is really good thoughts about this Ozzie Guillen like a lot.
It's like till we must be good manager that yeah.
Gay is a great manager and also he's got to use a long history it is going back when he was a player all -- -- had to say was we didn't really monitor these reviews and -- like you know what Twitter.
-- started -- this round.
-- in Chicago baby no more Twitter -- -- and they didn't do it.
Let's just sad that companies constantly feel like whenever one of their employees says something that's unpopular that they're going to be in trouble -- I don't know I think you're still here yet -- I think everybody here digital content in my pocket -- will -- you don't see me at 5 AM we don't know what happened and I right.
