Ozzie Guillen isn't the only one on the White Sox coaching staff getting fed up with the way Chicago is playing this season. Pitching coach Don Cooper hung up on a paid sports-talk radio appearance Thursday when the hosts asked him about calling up prospect Dayan Viciedo.
Here's a roundup of the appearance on "The Mully & Hanley Show" on WSCR-AM 670 in Chicago, via the Chicago Tribune:
"I have no clue about that. I'm a coach," Cooper said. "Do I feel like something (needs to be done)? Yeah, we have to score some runs. That's what's got to be done. And if we do, we have a chance to win. And if we don't, we won't.
"Nice try, asking me to bring up (bleeping) Viciedo. I'm not in charge of making moves, I'm in charge of coaching."
When host Brian Hanley told Cooper that he wasn't trying to put him on the spot, Cooper hung up.
Viciedo is hitting .311/.367/.510 with 16 home runs and 64 RBI in 93 games for Triple-A Charlotte. Viciedo played in 38 games for the White Sox last season, hitting .308/.321/.519 with five home runs and 13 RBI. A native of Cuba, Viciedo, 22, played third base for the White Sox last season but has been moved to the outfield this season.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
