Guillen fires back at White Sox pitching coach

Ozzie GuillenBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Chicago just can't quit Ozzie Guillen.

And can you blame him? If you're a columnist, just call him up and you've got a story (I can't quit him, either). The latest has the Marlins manager lashing out at his former pitching coach, Don Cooper. Two weeks ago Cooper said he signed an extension with the White Sox without Guillen getting a deal because Guillen allegedly told management to "let (the coaches) sweat" when asked by general manager Ken Williams about extensions.

Guillen lashed back on Monday, talking to the Chicago Sun-Times' Joe Cowley, saying, "Cooper needs to look in the mirror. He didn't back-stab me. I know who he is. He back-stabbed his fellow coaches, the guys he worked with for years. You got family? That's fine. Everyone does. We all knew Coop was Kenny's (expletive deleted, but suffice to say it refers to a gender of canine).

"Look, Coop is not a good coach; he's a great coach. But Coop is Coop. He doesn't worry about anyone; he worries about himself. I stuck up for my coaches like a (expletive deleted, but it's two words, the first being mother).

"I told [the White Sox] I want to keep my coaching staff, and I never lied to the media. I talked to Jerry Reinsdorf maybe five times [about extensions for the coaches]. The reason I was so comfortable with the Sox was the coaches. Let them sweat it out? Coop was Kenny's guy, and my staff knew that. We all know what he really is."

Guillen did say he was happy for the White Sox and new manager Robin Ventura -- "the Sox picked the right guy," he told Cowley.

Ozzie is a reporters dream, he holds no punches.  He has no filter and allows his emotions to rule.............I love it, you never know what he is going to say next, but you can count on it being his truth in the moment.

He said one truth: Cooper is a great coach.  Why not leave it at that Ozzie and try to be the bigger man the next time.

Who's you guys I could give a rats ass about the city of Chicago, the teams, can't stand any of them.  I didn't say I didn't respect the guy he just runs his mouth so much sometimes it makes him look like a complete idiot.  Like in this latest rant.  Sometimes the dude is hilarious, other times like mentioned before he's just an idiot.

say what you want,the bottom line is ozzie brought us the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!there's been many
'classy" guys come and go the last 90 years who didn't have the balls to bring the trophy to chicago.it pisses me off to hear you guys rip ozzie,you should be indebted to him forever for what he brought to the city.his act got old of course,just like it did for DITKA and even PHIL JACKSON,but don't demonize him because he is who he is.how about the g.m.?he has made horrible moves the last 3 years to tear this team down.how do you feel about him trading a 23 year old pitcher away in hudsen for a mediocre pitcher we didnt even keep a year?how about the dunn deal or the laughably dumb rios move?17 million for that guy?dunn at his best strikes out 150 times even if he hits 40 homers.we didnt need another slow one dimentional bat in the order between p.k. and that right fielder who always gets hurt.cant even recall his name.ozzie had a big,crude mouth,but words are wind,that's all.g.m. kenny is the problem who has ruined this world champion team.

Lemme get this straight, this is coming from the same guy who just a couple weeks ago couldn't even finish out the season with his team because he wasn't going to get the money he thought he deserved.  Also, I think I recall Guillen saying that HE is in this for himself and money, and that Florida is gonna pay him yet he's bashing his old pitching coach for doing the same thing supposedely?  This guy needs to expletive deleted look in the mirror.
