Ozzie = Moron.

Almost nothing made me happier than to see him miss the playoffs this year, while 2 other teams from his division took the trip.

I've grown to the point of not really caring what Ozzie does. In this case it seems like it's more the reporter brining up someone Guillen doesn't like and then quotes Magglio in a way that made him sound like a complete jerk. Honestly, I would probably have the same reaction if I thought someone was talking about my team, especially someone I didn't like.

Maybe he did it on purpose just to get a story?

Y, personally I think this week or so off is going to be bad for the Tigers. They're smokin' hot right now, 7 in a row, and just came off an emotional walk off win. Their momentum could be cooled off by this week off.

Pretty sure that it was actually.

Ken Williams Wiki wrote:On February 27, 2006, Williams lashed out at former White Sox first base man Frank Thomas in an interview with a Chicago television media outlet, in response to statements Thomas made about the White Sox organization. He referred to Thomas as "an idiot" and "selfish" and said no one in the White Sox organization would miss him.

From 1999-2003:

.301, 30, 117
.315,32,126
.305,31,113
.320,38,135
.317,29,99

ya....he sure was terrible for a while.

Even if Magglio did say what Ozzie was told he said; Ozzie's response was immature, childish and uncalled for. He should take a class on maturity


I don't care if two people say things about each other - I find it amusing at times. But when someone says something that is totally false (see Maggs' ChiSox numbers above), he/she loses credibility IMO as a result of a weak argument.

Don't say you hate Ozzie because FOX may get you fired from your job for being anit-hispanic!

God, I wish people would stop being idiots about "Freedom of Speech".

People seem to think it's license to say whatever you want without consequence. Well, it's not. If you say something stupid, you're still being an idiot. If people boycott your business because you said something they found offensive, that's your problem. "Freedom of Speech" means you can't be punished by the state for saying something; it doesn't mean that the state can't punish you for the consequences of your speech, and it sure as hell doesn't mean that other people can't ignore you, hate you, refuse to give you air or print time or anything else like that.

So when people start saying that Ozzie can say whatever he wants because he's got "Freedom of Speech", they're correct. But when they try to use that as a reason he's not an idiot or as an excuse for him saying stupid things, they're being rediculous. Just because you're allowed to say stuff doesn't mean you should.

Anybody who has a career OPS+ of 69 (69!!!!, which means his OPS was .69 that of a league average player) has no right to call Magglio Ordonez (career OPS+ of 125) a terrible player.
