Ozzie Guillen describes Juan Pierre as “pretty good”

Merkin:

Guillen focuses on the contributions currently being made by Juan Pierre, who was acquired in the offseason deal sending Ely to the Dodgers, or Jake Peavy, who came over from San Diego last year for a four-hurler package involving Richard. The White Sox have a good track record of giving up the right Minor League talent to make the Major League team stronger.

“Every time we make a trade, I always say, ‘I could never have been a general manager because you have to take a chance on what the team wants and the team needs, and ignore feelings,'” Guillen said. “We knew John would be fine and we knew Clayton would be good, but we have a pretty good guy [in return for each trade].”

Pretty good? I’d say pretty bad. I see a 64 OPS+ and a 75 wRC+. Both numbers are smaller than 100.
