If you put all your money on Spring Training Game 8 in the "Guess Ozzie Guillen's First Ejection" pool, you just won big. Guillen got thrown out of the Marlins' 5-3 loss to the Red Sox Monday after arguing a foul ball call with the first base umpire. Ozzie get worked up in a Spring Training game? Shocking, I know.
|The fuck're you looking at?|
Guillen did not see or hear Valentine's remarks, but asked how he would have reacted, Guillen made his feelings clear.First of all, I LOVE Ozzie talking in the third person. He cannot do that enough. Secondly, it's been far too long since a Marlin had a beef with Bobby V (the last one I can remember is Cliff Floyd way back in 2001). Glad to see that tradition come back to the fore.
"I don't see it. I would have told him to go and [expletive] himself, too," said Guillen, with a laugh. "That's the way Ozzie Guillen is."
It is going to be so much fun to cover Ozzie this year. He's the only dude who can hold a candle to Jack McKeon as a lightning rod for awesome quotes.
