    BREAKING: Ozzie Guillen Fired

    According to several sources, the Miami Marlins have dismissed Ozzie Guillen as their manager.

    Not terribly shocking news.

    Darn. And just a day too late to be considered for the Twins bench coach position!

    Never would have happened in a million years with the Twins, but I have to admit that it would have been entertaining as hell to see Ozzie as Gardy's bench coach for a season... or whatever part of a season it would last before one or both was fired.
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    Agreed. I think Ozzie and Gardy could have been the funniest thing in baseball.

    7.5 mill left on his contract will buy a lot of cocktails and Cuban cigars!! Should be a nice retirement! Please stay off TV.

    Our own Mike Redmond is rumored to be the frontrunner for the job.

    Just goes to show why you don't pay big money for coaches or managers

    Never in Twins org as coach. Has been in Blue Jays system as minor league manager. I believe currently at Single A+ Dunedin.
