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.
