How clueless is Ozzie Guillen?

So the White Sox manager is a little 'testy' having watching his team be simply swept aside over the weekend by Boston.

This from the Boston Globe on the infantile White Sox skipper;

Guillen wasn't exactly humbled by the outcome, however, cheekily bringing up the White Sox' three-game sweep of the Red Sox in the 2005 Division Series on their way to winning the World Series. "They swept us this time," he said. "I swept them in the big one. That's when it counts."

Classy, I dub thee Ozzie.

The White Sox manager resorts to an unusual means of player motivation

It left out how he then stomped his feet, cried and said 'You NEVER let me stay up past eleven!' How long before they finally put him out of his misery and sack him, leaving him to go sulk in the corner with his play toys?

Did you know Chicago are now 1.5 games behind Kansas in the AL Central? They are the second worst team in Major League baseball just ahead of Tampa with a pathetic winning percentage of .431. Pittsburgh, Washington, Kansas and Texas are all better than the awful White Sox. And yet, what is the managers answer? A classy admittance of blame, followed by a promise to improve? Not so much. Instead he cries like a five year old that 'yeah well we beat you last time'.

A while ago (Tuesday, May 29, 2007) Hurricanes third baseman Eric 'Vegas' Valkys asked me;

''Just looking at the odds and what do you think about the White Sox at 33-1?? Good value!! Yeah, if they do make the playoffs, they'd most likely have to play the Red Sox in the first round unless they can pull out 1st in the division!! But for value, what do you think??''

My response at the time;

''So, Vegas, to answer your question, take your lovely fiance out for a nice steak dinner or something, buy a couple of DVDs ('Stranger than Fiction' and 'Bobby' are two excellent movies available to buy right now) or go play the slots in Bray for a few hours. Whatever you do, don't waste a single euro on the '07 White Sox. They should be 100/1 not 33/1.''

At the end of the day, the moral of the story is, don't ever take American sporting tips from the Racing Post!

Oh, that and, maybe Chicago needs to look at their seemingly infallible manager as to a possible reason they have become the laughing stock of Major League baseball.
