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 knowing Ozzie, he probably takes it as a compliment. The entire interview was pretty good. Mattingly says he thought the team was close to signing Prince Fielder, and he also says Magic Johnson pranked him with a note. You can listen to it at Dan Patrick’s website, though you won’t hear the Ozzie Guillen clip — it appears to have been edited out. Video of the clip is below via Busted Coverage:
