Ozzie Guillen Says F You And Your Fascination With American League Baseball


"For all those people there saying it was my fault about Jim Thome, yes it's my fault. [...] If those people don't like that, [fuck] them." "Every time we had Jim Thome here, we couldn't play him against the National League," Guillen said. "Why won't anybody give me credit for that one? We won 15 games. And Jimbo had one, two at-bats every time we played those guys. And we made this run because we played good against the National League. We got hot then. "I have my head on my shoulders, and I think we did the right thing with what we did in spring training. If people don't like it, good. They don't like it, they don't have to watch the (bleeping) White Sox. "Oh and I got one more year on my contract, just make sure to tell Jerry (Reinsdorf), get it ready, this crazy (bleeping) Mexican, it's fine with me. They going to blame me about one home run, I'll take the blame.''

Yahoo! AL Central Preview


What I find interesting especially is the picture of Rios on the right hand side about mid-way through with the caption: "Alex Rios has a six-year career batting average of .330." They meant on-base percentage, but who's watching? Also includes some snippets about the other teams in the division, some quotes from Andruw Jones, Alex Rios, and Mark Kotsay, and comes equipped with a poll. Enjoy

Baseball fans, get ready for a bleeping interesting analyst.

Cut Out the Middle Man?


Just stumbled upon this gem, can't decide if I'm nauseous or impressed... "Probably the biggest surprise from our 25-minute interview was Guillen’s admission that he doesn’t just answer fan e-mails, but that he has actually used some of your ideas in ballgames. Said Ozzie, "I put Carlos Quentin third [in the lineup] one time because we were desperate about something. One fan wrote it in, and I put him in [third]. I put A.J. Pierzynski batting second. Some idiot from Joilet. I said, ‘Maybe this guy knows more than me.’ And we did. And we win with him!""

Ozzie Was Just Protecting Our Kids From the Dangers of Modern Television - Gregor


White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was obviously frustrated by six months of shabby baseball when he went off on his team after Saturday night's ugly loss to the Tigers. Without mentioning any names like, say, A.J. Pierzynski, Guillen lashed out at his players for watching college football in the clubhouse after blowing a 5-0 lead to Detroit and falling 12-5. Ozzie was calm and collected Sunday morning at the Cell, and he explained what really set him off. "From a manager’s point, listen, I have (Alexei) Ramirez, Carlos Quentin, Gordon Beckham, and I've got (Chris) Getz," Ozzie said. "I have (Tyler) Flowers. I have seven or eight kids. The problem we have in baseball is that the people who run this thing, they let players do whatever they want to do, and that’s why they do whatever they (bleeping) want to do. "My job is to teach those kids that’s not the way to do it. I never tell my players what to do or how to prepare yourself, but when you lose a game and all of a sudden you look around and they are watching another thing, that means you are teaching the kids: ‘Don’t worry about it, this is the big leagues. If we lose a game, who cares? We are out of the pennant race.’ "No, it’s my job and I criticize everybody because a lot of people say baseball's change. No. People who run this game make baseball change. I’m very old school with a new era of baseball. "I have to teach these kids it’s not the way we should handle this stuff. If I let that thing go away, then I don’t have the power and the right to tell the kids in the future what to do because it was like, ‘Well, two years ago, you let them do it.’ "My plan is to see those kids grow up and manage the White Sox for a little while. Believe me, anyone who is going to play for this organization, they are going to learn how to be a professional and how to handle things the right way. I see it around the game, players do whatever they want to do."
