Ozzie Guillen steps up to handle Pennant Race Pressure

Ozzie Guillen is not afraid to put the worst case scenario out there. The manager of the Chicago White Sox is well aware of the high quality baseball his team was playing heading into the All Star Break, but also remains astutely aware of how quickly things can turn from good to bad (or in the case of the White Sox, bad to good to bad again).

“We’ve got 70 or so games to go and we might lose all of those games. You never know,” Guillen said prior to their first post All-Star Break game with the AL Central Division rival Minnesota Twins. “But I know we’re gonna play hard, we’re gonna play baseball, and regardless of what happens, I can win with them.”

As the second of the Chicago intra-city series commences this weekend, you’ll hear a lot of vitriol for the Cubs from White Sox fans. And that is very misguided. A $146 million team that is hopelessly under .500 and nowhere near the NL Central race is not to be feared, or hated. They’re to be laughed at and pitied. Just be thankful your team doesn’t insult your intelligence by charging $70 a seat for the worst views in the entire stadium.

No, my Sox Nation friends, there is a legitimate threat, and it’s located much further north.
