Ozzie Guillen says he'd fight Dwyane Wade if disrespected

Ozzie Guillen may have quit Twitter and vowed he'd keep some of his non-baseball opinions under wraps, but that didn't stop him Friday night for commenting on the recent spat between Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and his star Dwyane Wade.

Guillen said he didn't know either party, but told reporters (via the Palm Beach Post) that the action was "disrespectful," and if a player got in his face like that, "you can guarantee a fight."

"I don't want to say I will kick his [butt], they will kick my [butt] because they're bigger than me and I'm older," Guillen said (via the Post). "But I will take my chances."

Guillen said he disrespected a pitcher on the mound when he was with the White Sox and later apologized to all of his players.

"I think it's respect," he said (via the Post). "We got a job to do. I guess they can get mad at me because I take him out of a game. You know how many players I take out of a game and they go out back and talk crap about me? I don't care."
