The city of Miami, and fans of the Marlins, are better off without obnoxious blowhard Ozzie Guillén

Ozzie Guillén is a glorified punk.

After one pathetic year at the helm, the Miami Marlins wisely terminated controversial manager Ozzie Guillén earlier this afternoon.

The 48-year-old Guillén, who was suspended five games without pay in April for praising Fidel Castro, the former First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba, “led” the Marlins (69-93) to a last place finish in the National League East.

Guillén, who was quoted in June 2006 calling Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti a “fag” and has long been a vocal supporter of notorious Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, possesses a bright baseball mind and has compiled an impressive record of 747-710 since premiering as a manager with the White Sox in 2004.

Unfortunately, the 2005 American League Manager of the Year, who became the first Latino skipper in the history of Major League Baseball (MLB) to win a World Series that year by guiding the White Sox to a crown, is also an unlikable and polarizing man.

The asinine 1985 American League Rookie of the Year feuded with Hanley Ramirez, John Buck and Heath Bell and was the primary reason the Marlins floundered on the diamond.

Without Guillén, who is owed $7.5 million by finicky owner Jeffrey Loria, calling the shots at Marlins Park next spring, “The Fish” will immediately be an improved squad in 2013.

Ozzie Guillén’s ouster from “The Gateway to the Americas” is a classic case of addition by subtraction for the city of Miami and fans of the Marlins.
