The Marlins have lost eight of their past nine games, and manager Ozzie Guillen is beginning to voice his frustrations…The fans have noticed too, showering the team with boos over the past two home games, both Marlins losses. ‘Can you blame them? I was booing too,’ Guillen said. ‘Too bad they can’t hear me.’

I go to the hotel bar, get drunk, sleep. I don’t do anything else. I get drunk because I’m happy we win or I get drunk because I’m very sad and disturbed because we lose. Same routine, it never changes. It’s been the same routine for 25, 28 years. It doesn’t change. I don’t like to go out. I never get in trouble, you see that? I never leave the hotel. Nobody can call my wife and tell her they see Ozzie in this bar or place. … I never get in trouble, I don’t go out. If I got drunk and someone talked [smack] to me, there’d be a fight. I’m too little to fight. If I was [Giancarlo] Stanton’s size, I would be looking for fights. I can’t. I might get killed.
