Guillen's son goes after Valentine

By C. Trent Rosecrans 

You ever wonder if Ozzie Guillen hopes his son would just shut up? Of course, shutting up is hardly a trait ingrained in the Guillen genes.

Since Kenny Williams has started ignoring Oney Guillen, Ozzie's son has a new nemesis, ESPN commentator Bobby Valentine. Why?

Well, Valentine tweeted something many of us have thought at some point this year:

 

Oney Guillen took offense, responding with this:

 
For the record, in the United States, Valentine has won 1,117 games and a National League pennant -- that's 1,117 more games and one more pennant than Oney Guillen.

The other interesting part of this potential feud is both Valentine and Ozzie Guillen will be popular names in the search for the Marlins' next manager.

Guillen: 'I don't have any closer'

By C. Trent Rosecrans

I don't really root for or against teams, but there is some fun as a blogger in the White Sox losing, because it means the most entertaining manager in the game, Ozzie Guillen may have something fun to say.

After the White Sox blew another lead on Wednesday, he had didn't disappoint:

"I don't have any closer," Guillen said. "I don't. Then we will see. From this point on, you just scratch your head and second guess yourself what you're doing wrong, bringing people to the mound with a  three-run lead for the third time and we can't hold the lead. That's not a good sign. 

"I see the same [stuff] you guys see. Exactly same [stuff.]

You can see the video of Guillen here:

 

The White Sox bullpen has been a disaster, blowing a late lead three days in a row. The White Sox were able to bounce back to win in extra innings on Tuesday. In just 12 games this season, the White Sox have blown six saves, four of them were blown by Matt Thornton. Chris Sale, who has the team's only save, also has a blown save.

Guillen said he went into Wednesday's game ready to use all three of his potential closers -- Sale, Jesse Crain and Thornton -- and he did just that.

After John Danks allowed just one run in eight innings, Sale allowed three straight hits to start the ninth, before he was replaced by Crain, who walked a batter and struck out another. Thornton came in with bases loaded and one out, gave up a bloop single to Josh Willingham to tie it before getting out of the inning, only to give up the lead in the 10th.

Back-to-back walks in 10th and then a single by Coco Crisp, Daric Barton, another single to score two more, giving the A's a 7-4 victory.

The only one, it seemed, that was stepping up their game was Guillen's son Oney, who actually had a good tweet on the situation.
