Ozzie Guillen Rips Into Joe West Following Pair Of Ejections

Wednesday afternoon was an unusual one in Cleveland, as first base umpire Joe West called two balks in White Sox starter Mark Buehrle. After the first balk, Ozzie Guillen argued and got ejected. After the second balk, Buehrle argued and got ejected. The White Sox went on to defeat the Indians anyway, but they had to do it without their manager and with a lot of help from the bullpen.

Ozzie Guillen, as you can imagine, wasn't too thrilled.

Oz on Joe West - "He's a f---ing asshole."
...
"Sometimes he thinks f---ing people pay to watch him f---ing umpire.'' Oz on Joe West.
...
"No matter what you say, what you do, how long you talk here, Major League Baseball doesn’t do s--- for anything.'' Oz

Ozzie, of course, will face disciplinary action for his remarks, but something tells me Ozzie doesn't care. He's been fined before, and he's almost certain to get fined again in the future.
