Chicago White Sox: Getting off to a slow start

Those reading this may be wondering why there hasn’t been more Spring Training coverage before now. To be perfectly honest, I was waiting for the White Sox to win more than one game so I’d at least have some positives to write about. The Sox stand at a 2-6 record after Sunday’s 2-5 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Just looking at the numbers, it is the Sox pitching that appears...

Ozzie's strong words for Bobby V.

It's only Spring Training, but two of baseball's most outspoken managers have already gotten themselves into a mini war of words. 

Ozzie Guillen would have told Bobby Valentine to go **** himself

Ozzie Guillen was right when he said he was one of the best things to happen to Chicago. I know, I know, he’s no longer with Chicago, but his presence is still a great thing for baseball. Ozzie was ejected in the sixth inning of the Marlins-Red Sox spring training game Monday for arguing a call. He had to walk across the field to exit through the Boston dugout. Opposing manager...

Valentine laughs off Guillen profanity

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine laughed off Miami counterpart Ozzie Guillen's profane reference toward him, commenting: ''Isn't that his standard comment on everything?'' Guillen was ejected from Monday's spring training game against Boston for arguing a foul call and Valentine waved goodbye a couple of times. After the game Guillen said he would have...

Ozzie Guillen: Bobby Valentine can go #*%& himself

Yes, it’s only spring training, but Ozzie Guillen is in midseason form.  And we wouldn’t expect anything less from Ozzie Guillen.Today during the Marlins-Red Sox game, Guillen was ejected (see, midseason form) for arguing a fair/foul call. On the way to the exit, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine waved and said “See ya”. Guillen didn’t hear or see Valentine’s remark, but...

Ozzie Guillen Uses Expletive in Tongue-in-Cheek Response to Bobby Valentine Waving As Marlins Skipper Ejected

Ozzie Guillen couldn't even make it to the regular season without getting tossed from a game. The new Marlins skipper was ejected in the sixth inning of what was eventually a 5-3, 10-inning win for the Red Sox at JetBlue Park on Monday. As Guillen exited the field, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine wished him farewell with a friendly wave. "See ya," Valentine recalled...

Athletics 9, White Sox 4

White Sox starter Jake Peavy allowed six runs and eight hits in just 2 1-3 innings of his second spring training start, and the Oakland Athletics beat Chicago 9-4 on Monday. Peavy, who struck out one and walked two overall, left with the bases loaded and one out in the third after yielding four consecutive singles and a walk. Oakland's Daric Barton went 0 for 3 with two walks...

Ozzie Guillen to Bobby Valentine: go f*** yourself

In today's practice game, Ozzie made sure the umps knew that the ball never reached the bag and also that just because he's sippin' on pina coladas and mojitos in south beach, doesn’t mean he’s going to be taking no crap this season. As Ozzie stomped towards the locker-room Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine gave him a little wave, which unfortunately he did not see...

Who's Crazier: Ozzie Guillen or Bobby Valentine?

Ozzie Guillen is up to his old shenanigans and Bobby Valentine has been told what's up.
