Ozzie's ReturnOzzie Guillen's return to Chicago would be a significant story if his Miami Marlins were playing the White Sox in an interleague series at U.S. Cellular Field. Instead he's traveling to the north side as the Cubs play host to the Marlins at Wrigley Field.
As the manager of the White Sox from 2004 through nearly all of 2011, Guillen always fired shots at Wrigley Field. He referred to the park as a dump, and even attempted to say that Wrigley Field, "has rats as big as a pig." Though I'm still convinced that he said, "ratsbig in a pick." Today, he started discussing how he doesn't hate any players in Chicago, but he does hate some people.
We get it. He doesn't like the White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams. Yawn. Old news.
Since I'm a Cubs fan, people assume I hate Ozzie Guillen. I don't. In fact, I'm jealous that he brought a World Series championship to the White Sox in 2005. It's difficult to criticize what he accomplished on the south side. With that said, his act has worn thin. There was no need for the Ozzie Guillen vs. Kenny Williams fiasco throughout the years. It's a shame that they weren't able to work out their differences. Together, they brought Chicago the city's first World Series title since 1917. That was a long time the last I looked. Lately, he called Washington's Bryce Harper unprofessional for using too much pine tar. What?
Guillen's Marlins are currently three games below .500 and are sitting in fourth place in the National League East. As of today, they trail the Washington Nationals by nine full games.
