Watch the Showtime trailer for Ozzie Guillen and the Marlins on “The Franchise”

Apr 17, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

Showtime has posted the official trailer for this season of “The Franchise” starring Ozzie Guillen and the Marlins. There’s way too much Jeffrey Loria for my tastes, but the preview is definitely intriguing enough to snag me as a viewer.

Among other things, it shows Hanley Ramirez and Jose Reyes hanging out, playing video games, and being buddies–remember all the offseason speculation to the contrary?–along with Guillen being awesome in the clubhouse and not so awesome when talking about (and later apologizing for talking about) Fidel Castro. And it even goes behind the scenes to show the actual meeting where the Marlins suspended Guillen.

    Well, that pretty much wraps up my Saturday night. I guess I just have to prop my feet up on the sleeping dog, pour a protein smoothie and fill the bowl with hot buttered groat clusters and make a solid commitment to the idiot box. I was originally planning to head down to the pond and watch the giant toads fool around – it’s the season – but hey, unless the same parasite that’s wiping out the bees finds a way to breathe underwater, the toads will be back on Sunday night too.

    Will be interested to see the video of Ozzie being told he was being suspended.
    It almost looked like he turned his head and smiled.
