• Ozzie Guillen: A-Rod is FOS

    From NBCSports.com -

    Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen called New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez a hypocrite for his waffling on which team he would play for at the World Baseball Classic in early March, Sports Illustrated reported.

    “Alex was kissing Latino people’s asses,” Guillen said in reference to Rodriguez’s indecision about whether to play for the Dominican Republic or the United States in the WBC. “He knew he wasn’t going to play for the Dominicans; he’s not a Dominican!”

    “I hate hypocrites: He’s full of [expletive],” Guillen told Sports Illustrated. “The Dominican team doesn’t need his ass. It’s the same with [Nomar] Garciaparra playing for Mexico. Garciaparra only knows Cancun because he went to visit.”

    Given Ozzie’s history, Bud has to fine him for this. It’s just not what one of 30 big league managers should be saying in public.

      A-Rod should say “no comment” and let his bat do the talking on July 14, 15 and 16.

      Maybe Ozzie’s upset he wasn’t asked to manage the American team instead of Buck Martinez. After all, Guillen recently became an American citizen. It’s typically Guillen-ish though. Did you expect anything “less” from this eccentric boor?

      Not to agree with Ozzie and his career 1250 RCAA (Ridiculous Comments Above Average), but I don’t have a whole lot of sympathy for people who can’t decide what country they came from either.

      For once I would love A-rod to try and not be Mr. PC and say something like

      “Ozzie is entitled to his opinion…too bad his opinion is horses–t. He obviously was nervous people would forget he was still involved in the game and decided to say something stupid”

      If he ever said something like that, I think more fans (especially Yankee fans) would give him a break.
