The Marlins on Tuesday suspended manager Ozzie Guillen five games, effective immediately, for comments to Time magazine expressing love and respect for Fidel Castro.
Guillen's comments created a massive amount of controversy in Miami, with several groups calling for boycotts of Marlins games and some local political figures, including the chairman of the Miami-Dade board of commissioners, asking for Guillen to resign.
Guillen apologized for his comments on Monday and is scheduled to hold a press conference Tuesday. He was fined in 2006 for using a homophobic slur to describe a member of the media while manager of the White Sox.

According to a report from Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Bill Parcells will not serve as interim coach for the New Orleans Saints in 2012.
Parcells had spoken to Sean Payton about the possibility of taking over as head coach for 2012 when the punishment for Payton for his role in the bounty system was announced. Payton's appeal of the one-year suspension was denied by Roger Goodell on Monday.
It is now believed that the Saints will promote a coach from its own staff to fill in for Payton. Assistant head coach Joe Vitt could take over after serving his six-game suspension to start the season.
Parcells -- currently working at ESPN as an analyst -- hasn't coached since leaving the Cowboys after the 2006 season.

, the manager announced plans to return to South Florida on Tuesday to apologize in person for comments he made praising Cuban leader Fidel Castro
Guillen, whose team is playing a series in Philadelphia but has no game Tuesday, apologized over the weekend after the Time magazine story filtered out. He said he has not been able to sleep and needs to let people in Miami see how contrite he is.
"I'm going to make everything clear what's going on," he said Monday. "People can see me and talk. I've already talked to people. But I think it's the proper thing to see my eyes. They can see me and ask whatever question they want. I think sooner is better. Better for the ballclub, better for me."
Added Guillen: "I know I hurt a lot of people. I want to get the thing over with."

TORONTO -- Ryan Sweeney grounded a two-out single between first and second in the ninth inning, scoring pinch-runner Darnell McDonald with the game-winning run to give the Red Sox their first win of the season, a 4-2 triumph over the Blue Jays Monday night at Rogers Centre.
Sweeney's single came after the Sox tied the game at 2-2 earlier in the ninth thanks to a Dustin Pedroia leadoff double, a passed ball and Adrian Gonzalez's sacrifice fly against Jays' closer Sergio Santos. David Ortiz and Cody Ross each kept things going with two-out walks, leading to the RBI from Sweeney and another run when Ross came in on Santos' wild pitch.
The win prevented the Red Sox from starting their season 0-4 for a second straight year, which would be an organizational first.
Getting a no-decision was Sox' starter Felix Doubront, who only allowed two runs on four hits over five innings, striking out six and walking three. Doubront finished throwing 101...
Red Sox GM Ben Cherington, in an appearance on “MLB Network Radio channel on SiriusXM” with Jim Bowden and Casey Stern, said that his team would not reconsider its decision to commit to Daniel Bard in the rotation. While he did leave open the possibility of reconsidering the pitcher's role down the road, Cherington said that the team's 0-3 start, which included two games in which the combination of Alfredo Aceves and Mark Melancon contributed directly to the losses, would not prompt the Sox to reconsider the best usage of Bard before he makes his first start.
"Right now, he’s starting [Tuesday] for us. We made a decision this winter collectively to give him a chance to get stretched out in spring training and show us what he can do. We feel like he showed enough in spring training, enough development, to carry that into the season," said Cherington. "If he can do that and do it well, and we believe he can, then...
