As a Twins/Cubs fan who hates the White Sox, I love it everytime Ozzie says or does something stupid. (you usually don't have to wait long for the next 'incident') The guy just doesn't get it.

I'd be embarrassed to be a Sox fan, which is really saying something, considering they're the World Champs.

Why the hell would I be embarassed because my favorite team's manager won't shut up? I don't see how that reflects on me. Are you embarassed because your favorite team's manager (Baker) is a complete moron? :-B

He's becoming annoying, but that's who he is and he probably won't change. When it starts affecting the team's play, and that seems likely, he should be dealt with by Kenny Williams.

First of all, the Twins are my favorite team. I grew up an hour from the Dome. Second of all, Dusty won't be the manager for long. And if I were a Sox fan, I'd be embarrassed by Ozzie. I never said you're a horrible person, or anything like that. I merely said that I'd be embarrassed. ;-D

hard to be embarrassed about being world champs. ozzie is a loudmouth and socially retarded, but he's got the team winning. can't argue with it.

i see all this noise about sox fans should be embarrassed or ozzie should be fired, etc. as nothing but jealousy

you guys should worry about something important instead of being drama queens about ozzie being a moron.

;-D

where are you guys getting this suspended nonsense? there was no warning, if garland would have done his job and hit the guy, the ump then would have issued a warning and then the story would have been over. but no our freaking pitchers cant hit anyone when our offense seems to get hit every other day. these pitchers gotta standup for thier guys and they keep failing.

Padilla's HBP was clearly unintentional. If Ozzie had just kept his mouth shut, then the story would have gone away.
