Quote of the Day: Ozzie Guillen

Leave a comment

“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.

Jon Heyman reports that the Indians are signing Tyler Clippard to a minor league deal. He’ll make $1.75 million if he makes the big league roster.

Clippard, a 12-year veteran who just turned 34, pitched in 73 games for the Blue Jays last year, posting a 3.67 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 85/23 in 68.2 innings. It was a nice bounce back year for him after he spent 2017 bouncing among three different teams in the course of a below average campaign.

With the departures of Andrew Miller and Cody Allen, and the elevation of Brad Hand to the closer’s role, Terry Francona will be looking for all the mid-innings help he can get in the Indians’ pen. Clippard could fit that bill.
