Guillen suspended five games for Castro comments

Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has been suspended five games by the team for comments he made about former Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

Guillen was quoted in a Time magazine article, which appeared online last Friday, praising Castro for his longevity in the face of international scorn.

The comments have drawn severe criticism from a Miami community heavily populated with Cuban-Americans, many of whom left the Caribbean island nation to escape atrocities from Castro's dictatorial regime. Some Cuban-American groups have called for Guillen's ouster.
