The baseball season is just warming up, but Miami Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen has wasted no time getting himself into hot water. Just five games into his career with the team, Guillen started a political row when he told Time Magazine that he loves and respects Cuba’s military dictator for staying in power as long as he has. The Sunshine State’s large Cuban community has been up in arms calling for the manager’s ouster. 

For more on the story we speak with our friend Phil Latzman, reporter for WLRN and The Miami Herald, and Laura Vianello, a national delegate for Vigilia Mambisa, an organization dedicated to advancing the cause of Cuban Democracy.
