Will you ever quit Ozzie?
“(I’ll get) fired because I’m not a quitter. When I want to quit, I’ll do a lot of stupid things to make sure they fire me and get paid. No, I think getting fired is better because when you quit it’s hard for you to find another job because I think if you quit, a lot teams out there are going to think you’re a quitter or you can’t handle yourself or you can’t handle the heat, you can’t handle losing and it’s tough to get a job.”
Stupid things like using Juan Pierre and Mark Kotsay as regulars and running Jim Thome out of town?
