‘Bored’ Ozzie makes baseball a little more interesting

As a Cub fan, one would expect that I would have a dislike for Ozzie Guillen.  Not necessarily so.  Oh sometimes I can’t stand him.  Other times, he does things that make me stand up and applaud.

Then there are these times when he talks to the press and I just smile:

"I’m always bored," Guillen said. "I’m not playing. You’re sitting around for seven innings. My game starts in the sixth [or] seventh inning. That’s when you see me look around the stands a lot, because you play this game for that many years and coach it and be there for that many years and you’re just managing, it’s a boring game all day for me."

I may not like exactly what Ozzie said but I appreciate the fact that he speaks his mind.  Twenty-nine other managers talk to the press and toe the company line and use pre-approved clichés.  When the media puts a mike in front of Ozzie, he makes baseball a little more interesting for us.

Oh no doubt you’ll here those in the media respond to this.  They’ll recoil in horror and say, “How could he say such a thing?”. 

Let’s face it… to some degree, he’s saying what a lot of the other managers are probably thinking.

  1. THE SOX NEED TO KEEP JD LIKE OZZIE SAID BECAUSE HE’S BEEN THE ONE CONSISTENTLY GOOD THING ABOUT THIS TEAM ALL SEASON. I UNDERSTAND KW’S POSITION THAT THE REVENUE IS GOING DOWN FOR VARIOUS REASONS, HOWEVER, HE’S A MIRACLE WORKER. SO, LET’S HOPE ANOTHER RABBIT CAN BE PULLED OUT KW’S MAGICAL HAT!!!!!

  2. The best thing Williams did this season was bring back Scotty Pods, what a difference having a leadoff man makes.

  3. admit it teddy, the Sox lucked into that one.
