No surprise here, Guillen will get a time-out for his Castro remarks. Not much to say about this one, except this: A five-game suspension is basically the Marlins' attempt to split the difference between people who wanted Guillen fired and people who think this is much ado about very little. In the end, neither party will be satisfied, but it will blow over in a week or so.
What hurts Guillen, though, is the fact that whenever he gets in trouble again it will be lumped together with this incident to give his detractors further ammunition. It's his own fault, but those Castro comments will be held against him permanently.
We will now revert back to being a baseball blog.
