I have to say this...Ozzie Guillen is the biggest masked curses are not ok in baseball. His opinionated persona will have him fired sometime during the 2007 season. He is a joke.

As for this Tracey thing...it's fine to want retaliation. But to throw a water bottle in front of his teammates is showing the kid up and the players will keep that in mind. Guillen is an ass.

i don't see how someone could mess this up so bad. If i was a rookie, I'd be honored to be picked to do a ceremonial plunking for my team, yet it seems like this kid wanted no part of it.

AJ got hit intentionally twice. Retalitation and protection of his own teammates was in order. He didn't do it. He went against his managers orders. He should be sent down if he can't follow instructions and won't stick up for his teammates.

I'm not a White Sox fan, but Ozzie is all about defending his own players and if you're told to hit somebody (see RJ last night) then you do it.

If you're not going to:

A: Do what your manager tells you to do
B: Defend your own teammates

then you don't deserve to be in the majors.

So this young kid does the RIGHT thing in the moral sense, but in the baseball world he's a failure? Interesting...

for starters i dont think both beanings were intentional.
padilla had been throwing heat inside all night, and he's been known to have some control issues when doing so (atleast recently).
the second one might have been intentional.

and i dont exactly have a problem with guillen telling a guy to bean someone....but to berate a player like he did is uncalled for. And i can say right now, if theres any intentional beaning tonight, look for benches to clear.

Ozzie already said there will be payback.
