Ozzie Guillen plays the World Series card [UPDATE]

Padilla @ ESPN:

“Are [the fans] going to feel sorry because we’re going to get fired? [Heck] no,” Guillen told reporters before Sunday’s game. “They only remember us from [the World Series title in] 2005. In 2020 we’ll come here in a wheel chair all [messed] up. As soon as you leave the ballpark they don’t care about you anymore. They don’t. The monuments, the statue they got, they [urinate] on it when they’re drunk. That’s all they do. Thank you for coming, bye-bye.”

Am I gonna feel sorry if you get fired? No. Not at all. You’re not managing out of the goodness of your heart Ozzie. Same for the players. Neither of you play/manage because you love the team or the game.

I DO feel sorry for all the working people that try to feed their families and lose their jobs because their employer moves their jobs in another country where the labor costs are lower.

UPDATE: From Ozzie’s twitter (in chronological order):

Thas bull crap what the media print today about celular field and the fans … The should print and said everything I said thas low blow and imrresponsable no clas … Bunch a crap … No mention any fans and alcohol … Press asociacion print you name who put that today tha will be fear … I have the enterviu on tape I whish I can sue then thas a very low blow … Allways take stuff out the contest put people in bad situation to people can read then … What a hell I going to say bad thing about white sox fan they are behind me all my carrer a less most of then

Hmmm, I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Ozzie’s not the greatest speaker of the English language.



  1. I care about the 2005 club… I wish we still had all of those guys today!!! what’s Ozzie talking about?

    • what’s Ozzie talking about?

      that’s a big question!

      maybe he’s tired of the lack of fan support. but how can you expect fan support with such a team. their play demoralize the fans …

      • so much hype for an underachiving team. I don’t like our own fans booing dunn at the cell because it won’t help anything, but that’s not all fans. we are loyal, or crazy. they just lost 12-4 and I still think they will win the division. greg walker needs to put more work in the video room because putting their foot down isn’t the only problem.

        • I don’t like booing dunn and I wouldn’t do it but I can understand the fans’ frustration after his 0-fors at the cell.

          I’m not very optimistic about the division/playoffs. I’d give them a 10-15% chance…
