“I hate making excuses. If I suck, then I suck. And I suck. That’s
the way I’m playing. If you suck, you suck. You have to take
responsibility in this game. Right now, that’s the way I feel. Yes, I
suck. I’m embarrassed by the money that I making, and playing the way
I’ve been playing. I’ll swear that on my kids’ (lives). I feel very
embarrassed. Sometimes, I feel I should take money out of my own pocket
and buy tickets for every fan. Because you know what? For a $12 million
man, these are not the numbers you should be expecting. I admit it. I’m
not playing to my potential.”

Jose Guillen, taking all the fun out of ripping him. I mean really, how are any of us going to top that?

All teams and umpire crews will wear the caps pre-game, and they have the option to wear the caps during the games. The only two teams not playing today — the Royals and Rangers — will wear them tomorrow.

Here’s today’s schedule:
