Former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is famous for despising Wrigley Field. He spoke of how the rats there are a big as pigs. Needless to say he’s not the biggest Cubs fan, and the idea of his managing on the North side some day sounds ridiculous. But it might not be as crazy as you think. For now though Guillen is an ESPN Analyst and he talked with the media to preview the MLB Home Run Derby.

In a conference call with the media today, Ozzie Guillen was asked what he thought about the Cubs grand rebuilding plan. Here’s what he said:

“I think the Cubs are doing the right thing right now.  This trade has been great for everyone, especially for Samardzija.  Samardzija, every day when he pitches, all of the media in Chicago ask: When do you think you are going to get traded?  How are you going to get traded? 
 
I think all the draining and all the stuff out of this kid’s mind now is he’s got to concentrate to help the Oakland A’s.  Now I think the Cubs are showing people they are trying to make a good young team for the future.  I think that was a big step for everyone.  And I think that they’re making the right steps.”
