So this is surprising. It turns out it was a bad idea for the manager of a pro baseball team with a stadium located in the Little Havana section of Miami to talk about having admiration for Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. The team has suspended the manager for five games, but that hasn't stopped protestors from gathering around Marlins Park. According to ESPN's Pedro Gomez, city officials of Miami have almost unanimously come out saying that a suspension is not enough and demanding that Guillén should be fired. Major League Baseball is currently investigating the situation.
