Ozzie Guillen Says The Darndest Things

The Miami Marlins' new manager Ozzie Guillen is featured on this month's ESPN Magazine cover, and a large part of the article is comprised solely of quotes from Guillen. He's easily one of baseball's most quotable, outspoken managers, and I imagine we'll have plenty of opportunities to highlight his quotes in the future.

But for now, here are some of the highlights from the ESPN article. You can find the full list here:

"I like our owner, Jeffrey Loria. I've told him he can ask me anything about baseball. If he doesn't like the answer, I couldn't care less."

"If you are engaged to a girl for eight years and she asks if you're going to marry her and you say no, then it's not going to work. I wanted to stay with the White Sox, but they didn't want me. The Marlins wanted me. They are a young team I can mold, and that really matters to me. I expect it to be fun, and I expect to win."

"I've never managed without a designated hitter, but I'll get used to it. I don't like the DH. I have a bulldog and named him DH because he is so lazy. He just sits there, eats and sleeps."

If nothing else, Guillen is going to make life entertaining for Marlins fans this season. And I'm really interested in how he gets along with Logan Morrison -- another outspoken, brazen man. That is, assuming Morrison doesn't get traded before the season starts.
