In case you had any doubts about just how much entertainment value the White Sox have cost the world by blocking Ozzie Guillen from creating his own website, here are his latest couple posts on Twitter today:

Oh god you are very crazy go and move to our country you will change you mind
Apparently he’s referring to this story. And now Guillen is up to 37,193 followers in three weeks.
The Twins have informed reliever Glen Perkins they will not pick up his 2018 club option worth $6.5 million, MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger reports. Instead, he will be paid $700,000 per his buyout clause.
Perkins, 34, has pitched a total of 7 2/3 innings over the last two seasons due to shoulder and biceps injuries. Bollinger adds that the two could come to terms on a minor league deal, but if they can’t reach an agreement, the lefty is likely to retire.
From 2011-15, Perkins emerged as one of the better relievers in baseball, making three All-Star teams. He compiled an aggregate 2.84 ERA with 340 strikeouts and 73 walks across 313 1/3 innings.
