Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended for five games for saying he admires Fidel Castro.

The 48-year-old Venezuelan told Time magazine he loves Castro and respects the retired Cuban leader for staying in power so long. In response, at least two local officials said Guillen should lose his job.
