Ozzie’s mouth is star of the Showtime’s new show about “The Show”

After much searching I found the 30-minute preview episode of Showtime’s “The Franchise” featuring the Miami Marlins that ran in April. As expected the episode spends a good deal of time on Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen and his comments to Time Magazine where he praised fidel castro. Surprisingly, Cuban-Americans were not maligned in the episode and we see some of the conversations that were had among the owner, the team president and Ozzie himself as they tried to manage the public relations crisis. I don’t know how much of it was acting but the message they convey is that they took the remarks very seriously. Tomorrow night the regular season premier of The Franchise will air on Showtime. I’m not sure if it’s the same exact episode as below or if it will be tweaked. We’ll be watching.
