“Sometimes I think you have to be careful what you say”
— Ozzie Guillen, responding to Torii Hunter’s comments about black Latino baseball players being “imposters.” I repeat: Ozzie Guillen is advising someone to be careful what they say. This is like Lindsay Lohan telling someone that they need to stop drinking so much or David Wells telling someone they should take better care of themselves. If Ozzie freakin’ Guillen is telling you that you need to watch it, you should probably take a long, long look in the mirror.
In other news, last night Ozzie Guillen tweeted “The wings vegasa yesssasa”. Seriously.
Infielder Trevor Plouffe has signed a minor league deal with the Phillies, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports. Plouffe asked for and was granted his release from the Rangers earlier this month.
Plouffe, 31, had a double and a home run in 17 plate appearances with Triple-A Round Rock to start the 2018 season. He spent last year with the Athletics and Rays, putting up a meager .198/.272/.318 batting line in 100 games.
Plouffe has mostly played third base throughout his career, but can also handle the other three infield spots and both outfield corners, so he’ll serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the Phillies.
