I said in the recaps that Ozzie Guillen probably blew a gasket after losing to the Royals on a wild pitch.
Another classic Ozzie Guillen rant was captured by the CSNChicago.com folks, and can be viewed in all of its bleeped glory here. If you can’t watch the video, here’s a taste:
“There’s nothing more painful than losing the f—— game against Bruce Chen once again. F—— pathetic. No f—— energy. We just go through the motions. We take the day off today instead of tomorrow.”
And there’s much, much more.
You can’t pick your family and no one knows that better than Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford. His sister Amy married Astros starter Gerrit Cole in November 2016, so the two players are brothers-in-law.
The two players have matched up against each other 18 times in the past, as Cole spent his first five seasons in the National League with the Pirates. Cole often won that battle, holding Crawford to four hits — all singles — in 18 plate appearances.
Crawford finally got the better of Cole on Tuesday night, hitting a line drive into the appropriately-named Crawford Boxes at Minute Maid Park for a two-run home run, cutting the Astros’ lead to 5-2.
