    Thanks! I was afraid my comments may be taken out of context. I'm trying to remove myself from an opinion here only because I have no idea of the context or what he truly meant. I only know what's been presented to me and I don't think I have the entire story.
    Thank you, 2013-2014 New York Rangers for a great season!

    The hypocrisy in Selig's statement is unreal. MLB has social responsibilities? Apparently not for drunk drivers, rapists and wife beaters.

    And Selig says MLB respects all cultures? Tell that to the Native American community while doing the tomahawk chop.

    Looks like the Cuban-American mafia wins again. Can't help but laugh at Loria though, Ozzie says hello

    Selig is such a Tooly McToolenstein - I so hate him.

    Respect all cultures? Is that why he changed the rule to limit the amount an IFA can make?

    This is just stupid, yes he said a dumb thing. But it's not like Ozzie was making some bold political stand for Castro, it was a dumb comment during an interview.

    Now he gets suspended for 5 games for what, being dumb? While nothing happens to Josh Leuke for fale imprisonment of a human being.

    He gets suspended for 5 games for saying inappropriate comment. He's an employee who represents his team. If the team thinks that his action hurts the team, they have every right to suspend him and that's for good reason.

    And I wonder if people are OK with someone using 911 as a topic of joking.

    It is indeed true - I watched that game as well as the one that was played at Camden Yards. Fidel Castro always dreamed of being a professional baseball player. Read more about it here:

    Well, I for one, am not but would you be ok with say the Yankees or any other MLB team traveling to Afghanistan playing a game with Bud Selig sitting together with the Taliban or any other terrorist organization watching the game?

    I think the MLB has some serious double standards here.

    What Selig did and the Marlins did are separate issues. And to lots of Cubans, especially to Cubans who escape from Cuba to USA, I think Castro may be viewed as evil. Selig's double standard shouldn't affect how the Marlins did to Guillen, especially if you think that Selig is a joke.

    Never once have I mentioned in any of my posts here that Ozzie Guillen does not deserve or does deserve the 5 game suspension. That is not for me to decide. I just find it to be highly hypocritical that the media goes ape sh*t on Ozzie along with many fans here but it they are either not aware of the MLB's visit to Cuba or choose to ignore it.

    There has been a lot of discussion about Ozzie Guillen on this thread itself as if the posters seem to know Ozzie personally. I am not a fan of his nor am I a fan of the Marlins owner as indicated earlier but there seems to be a much deeper problem here than just Ozzie supporting Castro. It has the feel of a witch hunt to it.

    This decision sets a horrible precedent for baseball. I may dislike Guillen and his whole act but this decision was beyond ridiculous.

    I gave a more detailed response on a different sites but what I said wouldn't fly here.

    The alternative was to fire Guillen. This is a better result for him. Realize that he was brought in specifically to establish a closer relationship between the Marlins and the latin american community. Instead he blew up the whole place and people are going to picket outside and boycott all their sponsors. Could not possibly have put the Marlins in a worse position

    I think Ozzie should show up to post-game interviews in an "Elian Gonzalez is Where He Belongs" T-Shirt
