CLEVELAND (AP) -- Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen wouldn't let a player get away with mouthing off to him - not without a fight.

Guillen was asked about what the dust-up between Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and coach Erik Spoelstra during Thursday's playoff game against Indiana.

Guillen, in his ninth season as a major league manager, said he has never had such a problem with a player.

"Have some respect," he said. "Why he said it, that's none of my business. If a player came out and said something, it would guarantee a fight."

Guillen didn't see the incident and said he doesn't know Wade or Spoelstra.
