Ozzie Blog Post Says He's Going To Marlins, Then Gets Pulled

(CBS) A blog post appeared on Ozzie's personal blog Monday night saying the former White Sox manager is going to the Marlins, but was then pulled from the site shortly after.

The post was written in first-person from Ozzie Guillen's perspective and said:

The Florida Marlins believe I am the right man for the job to bring another World Series to South Florida. And just as it has always been with me, winning is my only mission.

It's good being wanted, and more importantly it's good knowing where you stand. Although it's sad my time with the White Sox has ended, I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of the Marlins organization. I have an unbelievable amount of respect for the Marlins, owner Jeffrey Loria, president Larry Beinfest, and general manager Michael Hill. I can't thank them enough for this opportunity and look forward to the future. I can't wait to get started!

Despite the post being pulled from the blog, screenshots captured from Google search results showed that the post did in fact exist on the site.
