Ozzie on TV show: 'Who wants to watch that [stuff]?'


08:14 AM ET 08.21 | The Franchise, Showtime's up-close-and-personal look at the Marlins, will air its final episode of the season on Wednesday. [Manager] Ozzie Guillen said he can understand why. "The way we play, who wants to watch that [expletive]?" Guillen said. "I don't want to watch it. Every time I watch an episode, I get depressed. With the voice of the [narrator] ... 'And the Marlins lost again. And they have a tough time ...'" Guillen said he thinks the series might have changed the perception others have of him by humanizing him in a positive way. "I think people like me more now because of that show," Guillen said. "People used to hate me for no reason. Now that they see the show, they [think] 'This guy is not bad.'"
