Miami Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen: “Money is Bleeping Everything”

I guess it’s fitting that one of the most popular movies in America right now is titled “Moneyball.”

The message of Ozzie Guillen‘s departure from the Chicago White Sox: he’s exactly like Biggee and Jay-Z, he “loves the dough, more than you know. Gotta let it show, I love the dough.

Here are the highlights from the Chicago Sun-Times story that ran Tuesday. It shows you what his leaving the southside was really about. There are some choice quotes in here that remind us “being broke is childish, and Oz is quite grown.”

Ozzie Guillen and the White Sox: Ready to live Separate Lives?

So this is how it ends? No, let me say it in Ozzie Guillen English: “This is horses#$%! This is f*&*&ing s#$t.”

Chicago White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen, by far the most emotionally healthy person I have ever had a discussion with in my life (because keeping things bottled up is indeed bad for you) has one year left on his contract. And the prospective extension isn’t likely to happen. In fact, Ozzie might not even be here next year.

It all starts with the infamously acrimonious relationship between Guillen and White Sox GM Ken Williams, and how owner Jerry Reinsdorf handles it. It is a soap opera, and that’s why MLB Network choose to make a reality series about it. And it’s a crying shame how boring, watered down and spin-cycled that de facto infomercial for the Sox and MLB (I’m talking about “The Club” here) is.

So much potential…all thrown away. I’d rather watch a Smashmouth concert than an episode of that crappy show, and I think Smashmouth is the worst band in the history of modern music.

Ozzie, you’ll love managing the Florida Marlins.
