Ozzie Guillen has been around baseball for a while. He played in the majors from 1985-2000, and he took over as the manager of the White Sox in 2004. The guy knows how the game works, both on and off the field.
Yet, that doesn't mean he likes it.
The always-outspoken Guillen was understandably upset on Wednesday, after closer Matt Thornton blew his fourth save of the young season. Thornton's WHIP is now at 3.214, which, for a closer, is not exactly ideal.
Guillen was asked after the game about his closer situation, and he quickly snapped, "I don't have any closer."
As the Chicago Tribune reports, it was just the start of his outburst.
"I see the same [stuff] you guys see. Exactly same [stuff]," Guillen said. "When we play good, they send those guys to this [gosh-darned] table and [reporters] talk to them like they're heroes. When we [mess] it up, I'm the one who has to [curse word] sit here and talk to you guys."
With that, Guillen took off, presumably to try to find a hero.
