ESPN Chicago:

“I’m not a big fan of the social media, personally,” Thornton said on ESPN 1000′s “Talking Baseball.” “I don’t tweet. I don’t Facebook. I don’t like it in sports at all. I don’t think it’s necessary at all. … What happened here with Oney tweeting what he did, that’s crossing a pretty big line in my personal opinion. That’s something that’s gotta be addressed quickly and taken care of and snuffed out real fast. Anytime you bring clubhouse stuff out in the open, I don’t care what it is, it’s that person’s personal business and also the clubhouse’s personal business. That’s the first time all this stuff has really irritated me. It doesn’t matter what’s true and what’s not true, I don’t care about that. The fact that anything was said at all is ridiculous. It’s definitely gotta be addressed and taken care of real quick around here.”

  1. Thornton has always struck me as a level-headed guy and a straight shooter. That’s why these 2 sentences are so revealing and need attention.

    “… That’s the first time all this stuff has really irritated me. … It’s definitely gotta be addressed and taken care of real quick around here.”

    The uncontrollable mouth of Ozzie and/or Oney will be Ozzie’s Waterloo as manager of the Sox. It’s only a matter of time.

    And Oney’s next controversial tweet might be it.
