Ozzie Guillen says firing isn’t right decision

(MCT) — MIAMI — One day after being fired by the Marlins, ousted manager Ozzie Guillen didn’t have time for a lengthy interview. For one thing, Guillen said he was in too big of a rush to get to Chicago, where he keeps his permanent home.

For another, Guillen said, “I don’t have much to say.”

“No matter what I say, people are going to believe what they want to believe,” Guillen wrote in a text message. “That’s why I’m going to stay away.”

Guillen echoed earlier comments in which he accepted blame for his role in the Marlins’ last-place finish.

“Once again, manager’s fault,” he wrote.

But Guillen said he disagreed with the decision to fire him after one season.

“I know some people are on my side,” Guillen said. “They should (be) because I don’t think it was the right decision. But they (management) have the right to do whatever they have to do.”

As for future plans, it’s anybody’s guess. Guillen is guaranteed the remainder of his original contract, which will pay him $7.5 million over the next three years.

“We’ll see what is going to happen,” Gulllen said. “Now going to Chicago.”
