â†µâ‡¥Coming off an 0-6 road trip when they managed just nine runs, the Chicago White Sox returned home Tuesday and were confronted with more questions about two female blowup dolls than they were about their shaky offense. â†µâ‡¥â†µBased on Ozzie’s response after the lunch meeting, Williams clearly got the message across to his manager. Guillen seemed quite embarrassed and apologetic. Ozzie still don’t take no crap for nobody: â†µ
â†µâ‡¥General manager Ken Williams, who had lunch Tuesday with Guillen, said he was disappointed by the display and was assured it wouldn't happen again. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥“I don't view this as a boys-being-boys type issue. This is, you know, boys being a little bit careless, a little bit irresponsible on this front." â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µâ‡¥"I'm not going to say I'm sorry. I don't know what to say. I can't come up with the words, because as soon as I say that, that means I'm guilty of something. I'm not. I'm not guilty. ... We just had a plastic thing sitting on a table and, wow, we're bad people.” â†µâ†µHey, but maybe this “shrine” did bust their slump. The won for the first time in seven games last night, and almost had a no-hitter from Gavin Floyd.
â†µ(While we're here, I was being completely sarcastic yesterday when I wrote, "I like my manager’s tirades to be profanity laden and his clubhouse to be borderline sexist, if not misogynistic." I guess I didn't lay the sarcasm on thick enough. My apologies.)â†µ
