It's Ozzie being Ozzie

New, 21 comments

It's a slow news day, so all I have is some Ozzie quotes from Whalen. Ozzie on why Kenny didn't bring up Aardsma, Sisco or Masset:

"I already know what (they) can do. I don't know what Phillips and Broadway can do for us. That's the way I look at it."
on Richar:
Guillen said he won't bat Danny Richar there [lead-off] -- "I don't think he's mature enough to do it" -- but would be fine with the rookie as an everyday second baseman in 2008. "He's doing a good job," Guillen said. "Defensively, he's had good at-bats, he does everything we've asked him to do. I don't mind keeping this kid out there. He plays with a lot of enthusiasm, he brings a lot of good things to the table."
on Zambrano:
"This kid, every time he takes the mound, he does it with pride, he wants to be the best. Sometimes things don't work the right way. He'll learn, he's a kid. If you don't get booed in Chicago, you have to be Harold Baines. That's it. Everybody else, no matter who plays in Chicago, they've been booed once."
on Magllio for AL MVP:
"I hope he wins the MVP. It would be nice for him and his family, it would be nice for the Detroit Tigers organization, but it's going to be more special for our country. I'm rooting for him. His hard work paid off. I'm sorry Alex (Rodriguez), I got for my Venezuelan boy, I go for my countryman."
and on why the Sox play better in Detroit:
"For some reason, every time we come here we play good. The reason is -- don't ask me because I don't know why."

BTW, there are rumors about Ozzie getting a contract extension.
