Ozzie Guillen and Kenny Williams remain the odd couple. According to people who know both men, White Sox manager Guillen and general manager Williams are regularly engaged in heated dialogue and aren’t exactly loving each other lately. Guillen, who’s making more progress with his Twitter account than his team, and Williams, who’s smart like Guillen and can be just as feisty, do love each other when they’re winning. But not so much now that the White Sox are 5-11 and in last place in the AL Central, already six games out. It doesn’t matter; they know they are stuck with each other for better or worse, like a marriage. They are both Jerry Reinsdorf guys, and if you’re one of Reinsdorf’s guys, you’re golden. So suck it up, fellas, your pitching is the best in your division and it’s early enough to get back in it.
They both deserve blame for Juan Pierre and Mark Kotsay. And for running Jim Thome out of town.
