Guillen to apologize again for Castro comment


Marlins manger Ozzie Guillen will use Tuesday's off day to travel from Philadelphia to Miami, where he will apologize again for telling a magazine he loves Fidel Castro.

Guillen told Time magazine he loves the Cuban leader and respects him for staying in power so long. The manager said before today's game with the Phillies that he's had sleepless nights because of his comments and wants to make amends. At least two officials in Miami said Guillen should be fired. The chairman of the Florida Hispanic Legislative Caucus called for "punitive measures" against him.

Guillen apologized over the weekend after the story broke last week.
