Ozzie Guillen Suspended Two Games For Tweeting After Ejection

The Ozzie Guillen story only gets more colorful with the passage of time. On Wednesday, the White Sox manager got himself ejected from a game in New York after an on-field argument, and when he retired to the clubhouse, he immediately took to Twitter, posting the following messages:

This one going to cost me a lot money this is patetic

Today a tough guy show up a yankee stadium

Surprise! You're not allowed to do that. Major League Baseball disapproved of Guillen's actions, and on Friday afternoon, they've given him a punishment. According to the MLB_PR Twitter account, Guillen has been suspended for two games and fined an undisclosed amount of money, with the punishment being due to both Guillen Tweeting during a game in progress, and the content of said Tweets.

This isn't the first time Guillen has been suspended by the league, nor, I imagine, will it be the last. His behavior continues to rub many in the White Sox organization the wrong way, but from an outsider's perspective, I gotta say, baseball's a lot more entertaining when Ozzie Guillen is a part of it.
