You haven’t had a good week of baseball, if you haven’t gotten a little bit of crazy courtesy of Ozzie Guillen.

Does he’s go too far? Absolutely.

Do I make my bread and butter talking about it myself? Yup.

If there’s one thing I love writing about more than Roger Clemens, it’s Ozzie Guillen’s big mouth.

I still mourn the fact he ditched his twitter account.

Sans a 143 character count, Ozzie Guillen is still providing us with plenty of material. This time his target is not a significant section of Miami’s population. He is going after something just as big and just as ludicrous – Miami Heat Superstar, Dwyane Wade.

Wade may not be on Guillen’s team. He may not play his sport for that matter. Nonetheless, Guillen has never met a problem he didn’t want to butt in to.

Ozzie Guillen is apparently unhappy how Wade behaved towards the Heat’s head coach Erik Spoelstra after Thursday’s loss. Wade had a heated altercation with Spolestra during the third quarter of a 19-point loss to the Indiana Pacers in Game Three. Wade had only five points on 2-for-13 shooting as they fell behind 2-1 in the series.

Sigh. So much for Guillen’s promise to keep his non-baseball opinions to himself. Was Wade out of line? Absolutely. Nevertheless, is it actually necessary to take this outside?

“Players have to understand what kind of job we have,” Ozzie said. “Some players think they know baseball more than you do. But they can [only control] what they do on the field. They don’t know what we’re thinking. They don’t know what kind of moves we make.”

“I would kick his [butt],” Guillen said. “Listen, we’ve got a job to do. I’m not going to say I’m going to kick his [butt], because they’re bigger than me, and I’m older. But I would take my chances.”

That’s right Mr. Guillen. He’s bigger than you. He’s younger than you and now you are starting to sound like my crazy dad when we’re stuck in traffic on the Lincoln Tunnel helix. I highly recommend you don’t take your chances.

We all know Ozzie is talking to hear himself talk. Spolestra (the coach this actually happened to) isn’t even making the incident an issue. “That happens,” Spoelstra said. “Anybody that has been part of a team or has been a coach or been a player, you have no idea how often things like that happen. That was during a very emotional part of the game. We were getting our butt kicked. Those exchanges happen all the time during the course of an NBA season.” Wade brushed it off in the locker room as if it never happened.

Here’s the funny part. The Heat were having a meltdown a midst the playoffs. Does that happen? Absolutely. Come to think of it, when was the last time the Marlins or Guillen have a team in the playoffs? Maybe it’s time to worry about your problems at hand, instead of acting like “The Simpsons” Barney Gumble after one too many at Moe’s. (Remember what he did to Wade Boggs in “Homer at the Bat”? see image above)

I’m starting to think that asking Ozzie Guillen to kill his twitter account as well as to keep his non-baseball opinions to himself was too much. It’s like asking a bird not to fly… or me not to shop. I know, let’s set up a Friendster account for him and keep him out of trouble. He can chat all the heck he wants and no one of us will be on there to care.
