Miami Marlins coach Ozzie Guillen has been uncharacteristically quiet ever since he made those dumb comments about Fidel Castro. Even his Twitter has remained inactive for more than a month. However, you can't keep Guillen's mouth shut for long, even as he's trying to put the incident behind him. In fact, he doesn't want to talk about it anymore, and is responding to any questions in a very Ozzie-like fashion.

The Marlins are in Houston taking on the Astros (and, by the way, are above .500 for the first time since early last season), and Ozzie was asked by an area radio host, Paul Gallant of Sports Radio 610, if the backlash has died down in Miami after his Castro comments.

Guillen did not hold his tongue. 


"Ah, you. Fucking grow up, motherfucker. Are you kidding me?" he replied.

The audio is of course on YouTube:

Gallant's description of the video than says that Guillen then stormed off.

Well, welcome back Ozzie Guillen's mouth. We were starting to get worried. Just continue to stay away from any more pseudo-political commentary.
