Found September 22, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Marlins went into Friday 18 games under .500 but manager Ozzie Guillen didn't sound like a man worried about losing his job. "Can I say something about those (rumors)? Ha, ha, ha," Guillen said. "I laugh at that (expletive). I don't worry about what people say about that. I don't." Guillen said owner Jeffrey Loria has not spoken to him about keeping him beyond this season -- even though Guillen signed a four-year, $10-million contract last September. But Guillen, who is owed $7 1/2 million over the final three years of the contract, said he expects to be back. "The last thing that goes through my mind every day (is) if I'm going to have a job next year," Guillen said. "If Jeffrey thinks I don't do the job I should do, it's not the first time he's fired a manager." The Marlins have had six different managers since Loria took control of the team in 2002. "Look yourself in the mirror and ask why s...

Is Ozzie on the outs in Miami?

Rumors out of Miami state the Marlins may be close to ditching first-year manager Ozzie Guillen and replacing him with one of the team's World Series heroes. 

Peavy likely pitching last games with White Sox

Veteran pitcher Jake Peavy made his 30th start of the season on Friday, continuing to show some inconsistencies as of late, as the Angels beat him 6-2 in Anaheim. As it lines up right now, Peavy will make two more regular-season starts for the Sox, with the hope of pitching into the postseason. But it is now looking like they will be the final two regular-season starts that...

AL Comeback Player of the Year Race: Adam Dunn vs. Alex Rios

Going into this season, I often said the Sox’ success would hinge on how Jake Peavy, Alex Rios, and Adam Dunn perform, labeling them “the comeback kids” after they’d recently struggled with terrible performance and/or serious injuries. Adam Dunn (Photo by Keith Allison via CC BY-SA 2.0) About six months later and here we are – the White Sox are in first place in the...
HOO BOY, THAT WAS CLOSE

Francisco Liriano snags ball between legs

Your browser does not support iframes. This goes without saying, but this could've ended real bad for Chicago White Sox southpaw Francisco Liriano. The play occurred Thursday night in Kansas City when Royals hitter Eric Hosmer hits a sharp one-hopper right back up the box. Divine intervention then kicks in as Liriano makes a no-look, behind-the-back grab to throw out Hosmer at...

Ozzie Guillen to be fired? Jeffrey Loria reportedly unhappy with him

Ozzie Guillen had already put himself at-risk to be fired after his comments about Fidel Castro, and his team’s disappointing season has done little to help his job status. Now we’re learning that Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is unhappy with Guillen and leaning towards firing the manager. The Palm Beach Post’s Joe Capozzi reports that Loria is upset with Guillen for calling...

Konerko to have wrist surgery

Chicago White Sox slugger Paul Konerko says he will have surgery on his left wrist Thursday. Konerko said the procedure will remove a bone fragment from the wrist. The surgery will be performed at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Konerko, who is batting .299 with 25 homers and 73 RBI in 143 games, wasn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Indians. He...

Report: Williams to hand White Sox's GM reins to Hahn

It has been one of the worst kept secrets for the Chicago White Sox front office, but whispers of it have now turned into screams, thanks to a USA Today story that reported Ken Williams will be promoted to team president, while assistant Rick Hahn will take over the general manager post Williams has held since October 2000. Williams sent an email to writers about the topic before...

White Sox manager Ventura ejected in Anaheim

White Sox manager Robin Ventura has been ejected in the fourth inning of Chicago's game against the Los Angeles Angels for arguing a balk called on Jose Quintana. Ventura was tossed by first base umpire Ed Hickox on Saturday night with the White Sox trailing 4-1 and in danger of seeing their AL Central lead drop to a half-game over second-place Detroit. The Angels had runners...

Royals 4, White Sox 3

Alex Rios was thrown out at the plate, Alexei Ramirez was picked off third base and the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox again failed to come up with a clutch hit in a 4-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night. Eric Hosmer singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning. The White Sox stayed two games ahead of Detroit, which lost in the afternoon to...

Bring Back Lastings Milledge?

It is perhaps a sad commentary on the current state of the Mets and their almost non-existent production from the outfield, but I want to assure you that this post is NOT written tongue-in-cheek. I’m sure most Mets fans remember when Milledge was the highly-touted first-round Mets’ draft pick who made a big splash in the major leagues after an impressive climb through the minors...

Royals come back to top White Sox

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Alex Rios was thrown out at the plate, Alexei Ramirez was picked off third base and the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox again failed to come up with a clutch hit in a 4-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night. Eric Hosmer singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning. The White Sox stayed two games ahead of Detroit, which...

White Sox-Angels Preview

As the Chicago White Sox cling to their lead in the AL Central, the Los Angeles Angels don't have much room for error if they want to remain a serious postseason contender. The White Sox and Angels each look to avoid a third consecutive loss Friday night in Anaheim. Chicago (81-68) was riding a five-game winning streak before it lost 3-0 at Kansas City on Wednesday then blew...

MLB Rumors: Miami Marlins Firing Ozzie Guillen Would Only Further Illustrate Front Office Baseball Ignorance

The Miami Marlins may have spent a lot of money this past offseason. They built a brand new [albeit ugly] ballpark that none of the players enjoy. They hired a new manager with World Series credentials to turn around a losing atmosphere. They signed a bunch of elite players to come in and help make the Marlins a contender. They even changed their logo and uniform entirely...
