KenWo4Life of Southside Sox on Ozzie Guillen:
He threatened to quit as manager 20 times during his tenure. He put Rob Mackowiak in center field. He couldn’t make his loud mouth kid be quiet. He chose Mark Kotsay over Jim Thome in 2010. He had ill-timed requests for a contract extension. Ozzie wanted the spotlight on him and only him the entire time he was here.
This piece stems from the dust-up a couple of weeks ago where Jake Peavy basically accused Ozzie of quitting on his team. I was never a fan of Ozzie the manager, and always identified the negative of winning the World Series was that Ozzie wasn’t going anywhere. Apparently now that he’s gone, the White Sox still can’t escape his non-sense.
