    Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen wishes he'd kept a few comments to himself during an interview with Time.

    Former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is already getting in trouble for his mouth, just a few days into his first season with the Miami Marlins.

    On Saturday, he apologized for saying that he loves Fidel Castro, the Sun-Times reported.

    Guillen, a long-known sufferer of foot-in-mouth disease, said he "felt sick" when he read his comments to Time Magazine.

    He called a meeting with reporters before Saturday night's game to say sorry.

    “I will apologize if I hurt somebody’s feelings, or I hurt somebody’s thought,” Guillen said, according to the Sun-Times. “I want them to know I’m against everything 100 percent — I repeat it again — the way this man [been] treating people for the last 60 years.”

    The Marlins quickly distanced themselves from Guillen's comments as well, saying there's nothing to respect about Castro, and calling him a "brutal dictator."
