Ozzie Guillen’s Blog Post Announcing Move to Marlins Taken Down


Ozzie Guillen's Blog Post Announcing Move to Marlins Taken Down The Florida Marlins reportedly will hire Ozzie Guillen as their new manager on Wednesday. If this news sounds familiar, it's because it was mistakenly announced Monday.


Citing a "human error," a post on Guillen's blog announcing his move from the Chicago White Sox to the Marlins was taken down Monday night. The blog, part of the MLBlogs network, was replaced with a post thanking the fans of Chicago for their support.

Guillen "put something together and submitted it, but it wasn't supposed to go up," MLB Advanced Media executive vice president and editor in chief Dinn Mann told ESPN. "It made for an awkward situation, and we feel badly about it."

Businessweek published some of Guillen's comments from the deleted post.

"There comes a point when you need to move on, and that point has come," Guillen wrote, according to Businessweek. "The Florida Marlins believe I am the right man for the job to bring another World Series to South Florida. … I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of the Marlins organization. I have an unbelievable amount of respect for the Marlins, owner Jeffrey Loria, president Larry Beinfest, and general manager Michael Hill. I can't thank them enough for this opportunity and look forward to the future. I can't wait to get started!"

Apparently, he quite literally couldn't wait.
