OZZIE’S TWEET­ING TUS­SLE

The Kansas City Star (Sunday) - - DAILY DEUCE -

Ozzie Guillen just had to point out what a nice job his hair stylist did and how cool his new shades are. As news goes, that barely reg­is­tered. Guillen, the Chicago White Sox man­ager, is sim­ply pro­vid­ing glimpses into his per­sonal life on Twit­ter, and if his boss doesn’t like it, well, Guillen’s re­sponse can be summed up in140 char­ac­ters or less: Too bad.

He made it clear he’s not about to stop post­ing de­spite some re­cent con­tro­versy over com­ments on­line. And one more thing: “I think the peo­ple from Twit­ter owe me money, I make them so fa­mous.”

For those who haven’t been fol­low­ing, Guillen de­cided to start tweet­ing this spring and gen­eral man­ager Ken Wil­liams didn’t like it, the lat­est drama in the never-dull world of the White Sox.

What’s tran­spired since then would be prime ma­te­rial for a re­al­ity TV show, which, by the way, the White Sox and MLB Net­work have in the works. The show, star­ring Guillen, Wil­liams and chair­man Jerry Reins­dorf, is ex­pected to run on the net­work this sum­mer.

The prob­lem in­volved Guillen’s mid­dle son, Oney, a White Sox em­ployee un­til re­cently. The front of­fice nixed Guillen’s plan to start a Web site that Oney was work­ing on with him in which he would have of­fered in­sight on his moves as a man­ager.

Oney Guillen re­signed from his job in the scouting depart­ment on March 19 af­ter the or­ga­ni­za­tion took ex­cep­tion to some of his tweets, and Ozzie stormed out of the team’s train­ing com­plex without talk­ing to re­porters. The elder Guillen also posted in Span­ish that the White Sox “touched me where it hurts me the most and I have to be ready for what comes, like I have al­ways done.” | The As­so­ci­ated Press
