Newsworthy – Ozzie Guillen… Again…

1993 Topps - Ozzie Guillen

We knew this was going to be interesting.  Ozzie Guillen managing in Miami with a new team name, a new ballpark, an exciting new outlook for the franchise… we all anticipated the entertainment value that the situation was sure to provide.  But this?  We didn’t expect this.  We didn’t expect the content – vocal support of Fidel Castro, in Miami, of all places – and we didn’t expect it so soon.

Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie… oy, oy, oy.

Newsworthy – Ozzie Guillen

1987 Donruss - Ozzie Guillen

Ozzie Guillen said a lot of funny things.  If you are not very smart and therefore don’t believe me, read this and you will understand.

Yesterday, he quit – er, was released from his contract – as Manager of the Chicago White Sox.  Asked why, he said:

“Life is about money. People don’t believe that, but people are happy after they make money. I have to make money out of somewhere. I’m not a doctor or a lawyer, where you’ll have a job for the rest of your life.”

Ozzie Guillen earned over $23 million dollars during his career as a professional baseball player, and was reportedly to be paid two million dollars by Chicago in 2012 as their Manager.

So… Ozzie Guillen made a lot of normal people feel like dicks yesterday.
