Baseball insiders suggest White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf may “dig in his heels” and force Ozzie Guillen to stay after Guillen’s continuing public blathering about how it might be best for him to be fired and other such musings. But really, it might be best for all concerned to simply trade Guillen to the Marlins, as was briefly discussed a year ago. Those talks ended when the White Sox requested Logan Morrison. But as fortune would have it, Morrison is not exactly beloved these days by the Marlins. Morrison, who was already seen by Marlins management as a bit too opinionated, now has filed a grievance against the team for demoting him at a time he says he didn’t deserve it based on his play.
Again, is this just the Sox trying to gain more leverage?

- James looks at the disrespect shown to Omar Vizquel and at Ozzie Guillen’s latest whining. I’m so sick and tired of Ozzie’s whining. I so wish Kenny or Jerry answer like this: ‘Ozzie’s job status? He’s under contract with the Sox for 2012.’
- Fangraphs’ Carson Cistulli is puzzled by Brent Morel’s mini-breakout and Fangraphs’ Brandon Wane says Adam Dunn is a candidate for a comeback performance next year.
