Guillen: 'I should be fired'

Ozzie GuillenBy C. Trent Rosecrans

It's been a good month since we've had a good ol' Ozzie Guillen rant. So thanks to the Detroit reporter who asked Guillen if he was feeling pressure because of the White Sox's disappointing first half.

From the Chicago Tribune:

"Pressure about what, getting fired?" Guillen said. "I don't give a [bleep] if I get fired. I'm the only manager in baseball who [bleeping] don't care about getting fired. I don't at all. If I get fired, it's [because] I don't do the job, I don't know where or why or what I do, but no. I should get fired. Look at the team they give me, and we not playing well. I will take that. I think people think I no do a good job with this ballclub, I don't mind.

"You know what? Every time I go home I feel satisfied with what I supposed to do. I think I put the energy, passion, love for this ballclub. Hopefully this ballclub gets better to make me look better. If the ballclub play good, I'm a great manager. No?"

Guillen is signed through 2012, so he can't feel too much pressure, because he'll still get paid. And as soon as he is out of Chicago, we know Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria will have no qualms about firing whoever is managing his team whenever Guillen becomes available.

Guillen: 'I should be fired'

Think about why Guillen should be fired. If Dunn and Rios were hitting between .260 and .275 we'd be in first place, guaranteed. The rotation, the bullpen, and the rest of the lineup could stay status quo. Nothing different needs to be done. So for the lack of production from 2 veterans who are under achieving, we need to fire Ozzie. Bull----!!!!

We all know the White Sox have stunk it up thus far. But while team still has a shot, Guillen needs to be the man leading this club.

Guillen: 'I should be fired'

You're ignorant, why should the White Sox hire Ryne Sandberg? just because it would make the Cubs mad? Who the hell cares the if Cub fans get mad, they have enough to be mad about because their CUB FANS. Ryne Sandberg has nothing to offer the White Sox, the White sox have a manager who has won a World Series. If the Sox fire Ozzie it will be a big mistake, it's not his fault his team isn't hitting, no one could forsee Adam Dunn hitting 160 or Rios hitting 210. Thats the reason the Sox are underacheiving not Ozzie. You need to watch some baseball sober and you would see that..

He should get fired. His team is the most underachieving team in MLB and all he does is tweet and whine. The Chisox should hire Ryne Sandberg. That would tweak Cubs fans and also they'd be getting a good baseball guy to boot.

Marlins? I heard they may bring back Methusula. Ozzie would be perfect in S.Florida though. He could hang out with LeBron and they could tweet each other during their games. Both love the attention and to blame others for their inadequacies. Ozzie and Loria also would be a great combo. Dumber and Dumber.
