“I never be in Wrigley Field [as a manager],” Guillen insisted. “I don’t give a [crap]. I can’t I say I don’t like Wrigley Field? Why can’t I express myself? It’s like I don’t like to eat chicken. Why I should I have to like Wrigley Field. Whoever gets upset about that? [Bleep] them. I don’t like Wrigley Field. What’s wrong with that? I don’t say I don’t like the Cubs. Just make it clear. I don’t say I don’t like the Cubs. I don’t say I don’t like the Cubs’ organization. I just hate Wrigley Field. I wish I could do something about it. The Governor of Chicago, please, build another one. I don’t know why people make such a big deal that I don’t like Wrigley field. I don’t work for Wrigley Field. [bleep] it.

“First of all, to manage the Cubs, Jerry Reinsdorf has to be dead. Second, to go to that job, … I’m not going to manage at Wrigley Field. I might manage the Cubs. No, not Wrigley Field. I hate that [bleepin’] place.

“Now I hate a couple guys working for the [bleepin] Cubs. And they have nothing to do with the front office.”

Lou Piniella didn’t approve of the low attendance at the Sox game against the Dodgers. Take it away Ozzie:

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was asked why attendance was so low at the Sox-Dodgers series, and said: “Because our fans are not stupid like Cubs fans. They know we’re (expletive).”

Guillen said Cubs fans will go watch any game at Wrigley Field because “Wrigley Field is just a bar.”

Reinsdorf to pay for the next Wrigley Field renovation:

“I mean I can’t speak for them (critics of Wrigley), but I dislike Wrigley that much,” Buehrle told Dan McNeil on the Danny Mac Show on The Score 670-AM. “I joked around with somebody the other day, saying I don’t know if I could even sign with the (St. Louis) Cardinals, as much as everybody knows one day I want to play for the Cardinals.

“I don’t know if I could because that means I’d have to go to Wrigley three times, and that’s how much I hate going over there.”
