Quote of the Day: Ozzie Guillen

27 Comments

The Marlins came back after being down a zillion runs, then lost in dramatic fashion when Aramis Ramirez walked them off with a homer.  Ozzie Guillen was, understandably, not pleased. And he wants to be sure Heath Bell didn’t get all the blame:

“Make sure Miami people don’t (expletive) Bell. Bell gave up two runs. How about the rest of the (expletives) 10 or 12 runs they scored? That’s why this (expletive) game is not (expletive) fair. It’s Ozzie talking (expletive)? No. It’s Ozzie talking the truth, about how (expletive) we were before that (expletive) inning. Put that (expletive) down!”

“I think that was a very (expletive) big league baseball game, both sides.”

I think it’s better if you imagine every (expletive) to be “poopy.” Or “Castro.”

Never change, Ozzie.

I did the Handsome Managers list in December. Thought I had moved on. Thought I’d never have to think about him again. But here is, walking right back in my door: Brad Ausmus is interviewing for the vacant Astros manager job. So reports Brian McTaggart of MLB.com.

Ausmus played for the Astros longer than he played for any other team in the bigs, notching ten years of service in two stints and playing on the 2005 NL Pennant-winning club. As a manager, you know, that he led the Tigers for four seasons and was the Angels’ skipper last year.

Houston has already interviewed Dusty Baker for the job. They’ll presumably want someone in place before spring training begins in a few weeks.
