Did you think they were just going to take it with a grain of salt, just because you're infamous for being Mr. Rambler? Don't you know by now that the news-starved media was going to have a field day with this, further lighting the flames. What in the world were you thinking?!
What Ozzie needs to understand is that, in life, if we do something often enough, sooner or later it will come back to bite us. The law of averages never fail. Never.
Ozzie has been "shooting from the lip" for quite a LONG time now and (at times) it has worked in his favor and (at times) it hasn't. This time around he opened up a can of worms-- an UGLY can of worms. Unbelievable!
I'm sure, heck, I'm positive, this is NOT how the new-look Miami Marlins wanted to start their second life. No doubt about it.
It's your bed, Ozzie. Sleep in it.
