Meanwhile, Marlins Manager Resorts to Booze and Pills as Team Continues to Suck
For the Marlins, June is the cruelest month. They've cemented a tradition in the past few seasons of starting off strong and seeing it all sink away in the sixth month. A revamped roster, new name, new stadium, and new manager couldn't stave off the June slump. They're 4-14 for the month after having briefly lead their division in May. Miami sports fans have been otherwise engaged over the past few weeks obviously, but manager Ozzie Guillen has had to live with his team's crappy play. His solution: booze and pills.
"Easy. Seven Presidentes and a sleeping pill and be ready for the job tomorrow," he replied .
Guillen of course admitted earlier this year that he gets wasted after every game on the road, so this isn't exactly surprising.
But come on Ozzie, alcohol is for winners. You want to keep drinking Presidentes? Or do you want to guzzle $75,000-a-bottle champagne at LIV ?
