Twitter is reality for Ozzie, Sox

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Only the White Sox. Only Ozzie Guillen.

Yes, another Guillen controversy, although this one seems pretty mild. The Sox manager started using Twitter this week, and today he had to answer for it to general manager Ken Williams.

Guillen, tweeting at @OzzieGuillen, told Williams that he only planned to post items about his own life, and not about the White Sox. His Sox-related posts so far have been pretty tame, telling his 6,000 followers that Carlos Quentin and Alex Rios have arrived in camp, wondering why free-agent Jermaine Dye doesn't have a job and saying that after three days of spring training, "I'm already boreddddddd."

"People are acting like I murdered someone or stole someone's money," Guillen said, referring to the media uproar his Twitter account caused in Chicago.

Guillen said he would stop tweeting if Williams or club chairman Jerry Reinsdorf had a big problem with it, adding that he's not making any money on Twitter.

"If there was money involved, I'm pretty sure I'd get fired, because I'd fight for it," Guillen said.

Just another day with the White Sox.

"We're never boring," Williams said.

And maybe that's why MLB network has planned a reality TV show focusing on the White Sox. The Twitter episode won't be part of the show, though, because it doesn't start until July.

"Those guys don't have any idea what they're in for," Williams said.

Or maybe they do.

"Why doesn't everyone have a reality TV show or a Twitter?" Williams asked. "Why can't we just concentrate on playing baseball?"

How's it goin', eh? 

I'm Canadian, eh, and that means I live in the most politically correct country on earth.   Up here, if you hang some foul language or a racial slur on a non-caucasian while he's assaulting your daughter, you'll be the one who's charged.  The rapist will get of off on a technicality.  

To me, people like Ossie Guillen are a breath of fresh air.  Hope he remains Sox manager far into the future. 

By the way, thank your GM, Mr. Williams, for snagging our Alex Rios off the waiver wire.  His $60 million contract was far too rich for the tight-fisted billionaires who own the Jays.

Come to think of it, Rios was the player who inspired me to the zenith of creativity.  He struck out five times in one game and I didn't know what to call the feat.  You see, three strikeouts is The Hat Trick, four strikeouts in one game is The Golden Sombrero, but what about five?  For a while I was at a complete loss.

But I finally came up the "The Platinum Snood".  For the uninitiated, a snood is one of those hairnets that make food-services people look funny.  I figured if Blue Jays' manager Cito Gaston made Rios wear one of those suckers for 48 hours, he'd never strike out five times again.

Seriously people, why do you need to take this as an opportunity to blast the White Sox?  Who gives a flying ____ whether Guillen tweets?  I personally think Twitter is the biggest bunch of garbage on the planet, but I don't get too worked up when people use it.  Why would I?  Cubs fans who like bashing Ozzie can just take all that built up anger and pound another Budweiser because it is very overplayed at this point.  When they win it all, you may not be so angry, but until then, have a nice day, and good luck with this season.  Also, can people who claim Peavy says Ozzie is "not the manager he thought he was" please send the link to support such.  Nothing pisses me off more on these boards then when an idiot likes to act like they know something, but in actuality, know nothing and have an over the top self-important personality.
