Ozzie Guillen: “we deserved to lose”

10 Comments

Ozzie Guillen had a pretty matter-of-fact assessment of the White Sox game last night:

“I don’t think we should feel bad because we earned it to lose this game. We deserved to lose. I think the way we played from the first inning , I don’t think we should have won this game at all … We don’t do the little things, and do you expect to win? Hell no. We played like sh**, you go home like sh**”

And then, according to ESPN Chicago reporter Doug Padilla, Ozzie said “he was glad the game ended when it did and he didn’t have to watch it any longer.”

I’m struck by the notion that, if there is any truth to that “Jeff Loria wants to hire Ozzie Guillen” buzz, that the relationship will end up lasting about three weeks.  The Marlins have basically censored Logan Morrison for telling it like it is.  What will they do when their manager starts doing the same?

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
