“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.
The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.
In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.
The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
