Is Ozzie Guillen in trouble?

4 Comments

No news story or gossip to base this on, but based on his tweets the wonderful Ozzie Guillen is feeling a bit edgy and insecure today:

  • I’m playing golf trying to clear my head, still
    not working hahaha. Nice day;

  • I sleep like a baby, but I get up every 2 hours
    and cry;

  • I’m going to have lunch. I hope they don’t poison
    me ha

  • I know we sucks no remind me iam
    sucks you no have to remind everyone lol lol


  • I going to play the mega ball
    please god help me iam a good person very good person lol


The insecurity is one thing, but lottery fantasies are truly the last refuge of a man who knows his job is in trouble.

Pray for Ozzie today, children. Pray.

KTAR News is reporting that Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested on Thursday morning for driving faster than 100 MPH, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding.

The maximum sentence for a criminal speeding charge is up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500. It is considered a Class 3 misdemeanor. Tomas may also have his license suspended.

A Diamondbacks spokesperson said, “We are very disappointed to learn of this news. We are still gathering facts, and will refrain from further comment at this time as this is a pending legal matter.”

Tomas, 27, signed a six-year, $68.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks in December 2014 as an amateur free agent out of Cuba. He has mostly disappointed, owning a .769 OPS while playing subpar defense in the outfield as well as at third base, where the club briefly tried him. He battled a groin injury for most of the past season and ultimately underwent core muscle surgery in August.
