Kenny Williams-Ozzie Guillen at odds [UPDATE]

During a seemingly casual morning conversation in spring training in Glendale, Ariz., Williams was asked if the team was planning to make roster cuts soon.

“If I can ever get a hold of that guy,” replied Williams, pointing in the direction of Guillen’s office.

UPDATE: Ozzie confirms there are disagreements:

“There are a lot of things that happened this year and we’re not going to deny it, since spring training, a lot of disagreements between each other, but that doesn’t mean we have personal problems. Personal problems, everyone has personal problems, but in the meanwhile, we respect each other the way we should. We still talk about the ballclub. One thing about it is the relationship between manager and GM in baseball, we played together, we grew up together, and that’s the difference between another GM and manager and us. It’s like a divorce, it’s like a you’re married – you argue with your wife, with your kids and then all of a sudden you turn the thing, blow it away and move on. Right now, there are a lot of things that have happened out there, I don’t want to say miscommunication, a lot of disagreements, and they get to the point like we hate each other, well, I don’t remember hating anyone. Is the relationship the same way it was? Not really, because a few things have happened in disagreements, but that’s part of life.”

UPDATE: The guy that told the Sun-Times about the Ozzie-Kenny feud was Ozzie’s nephew, Freddy Garcia:

”They used to be good friends,” pitcher Freddy Garcia said. ”I don’t know what’s happened. It doesn’t bother me because we play. They don’t play. We have to come to the field and do what we’re supposed to do. Now they have this fight, this yelling, whatever it was the other day, but if we play bad, that’s our fault.”
