“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):

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