Most people consider Ozzie Guillen to be an annoying loudmouth. Apparently many players view him the same way.
During a radio interview on “The Dan Patrick Show” Thursday, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly referred to the Marlins manager as “this little s***.”
Patrick asked Mattingly if there was any manager he wanted to physically confront.
“No, not at all,” Mattingly answered, prompting Patrick to ask if Guillen was on the list.
“No, I’ve been around Ozzie. I played against him and that’s just the way he is. He’s talking all the time … as a player too, as a player you’re going like ‘this little s***’, sorry about that,” Mattingly said, apologizing for using profanity on the air.
“I like Ozzie but it is the way he is. He talks and he is just kind of like that. You gotta be yourself. And if Ozzie was doing something different, he wouldn’t be himself. And if I was trying to be like Ozzie, I wouldn’t be myself.”
Mattingly seemed to say everything in a friendly manner, and

Although the White Sox were off to a slow start in Spring Training, the Southsiders went 5-2 this past week and seem to be settling into a groove. These wins put the Sox at a more respectable 10-13 overall, mostly thanks to the arrival of some serious offense.
The Sox scored 13 runs in last Wednesday’s win over the Seattle Mariners and routed the Kansas City Royals 16-4 the next...
Ozzie Guillen is so vulgar and unfiltered that he’s more than perfect for Twitter. So when GQ conducted a Q&A with the new Marlins skipper, the magazine did it entirely through the social media platform. During the tweet-chat, we learn more about Guillen’s affinity for the show “Cake Boss,” Bed Bath & Beyond, and, yes, whether he prefers breasts or the buttocks....
There isn’t a ton of reason to be optimistic about either Chicago baseball team this MLB season. The Cubs figure to be bad, and the White Sox only marginally better. But there is an interesting comeback story possibly brewing on the White Sox pitching staff. For a guy to play for the lowly Windy City Thunderbolts, who play in suburban Crestwood, IL, the heart of White Sox fan...
Talk radio goes days and days without something that piques our interest. Blah, blah, blah. And then Don Mattingly comes on the Dan Patrick Show and drops a “this little sh*t” bomb when referencing Ozzie Guillen. You just figure Donny will talk some baseball, keep it clean and get off the phone. Nope. Commence the iPhone i-Team! VIDEO! NOW! HURRY!
Later in the show Dan asked...
As Spring Training winds down, the always entertaining, often illuminating and frequently controversial Ozzie Guillen is currently settling into his role as the brand new Miami Marlins manager. He recently engaged in a Twitter interview with GQ writer Dan Hyman to discuss a multitude of topics baseball-related and otherwise, but by far the most [...]
If you’re already sick of Ozzie Guillen, f***ing strap in, because it’s going to be a long summer. Particularly if Guillen’s Miami Marlins run away with the National League East, as they’re already threatening to do. I mean, the season hasn’t even started yet, but they’ve already released Aaron Rowand. That is a CHAMPIONSHIP caliber move, right there.
Guillen is nothing...
No need to set the scene for this one.Dan Patrick sets it up nicely and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly knocks it out the park. Via Busted Coverage
At age 6, I had my first best friend. I do not remember why I was chosen as companion and owner of this particular Teddy Ruxpin, but he was mine. This robot-bear existed solely to read children’s stories via a tape player tucked in his stomach pouch. But it was easy for me, a wallflower with a stuffed animal obsession, to relate to the animatronic bear on a deeper level. I would...
