Not a big Guillen fan, but at least he has the balls to call a spade a spade.


Guillen calls A-Rod hypocrite in SI for WBC decision

Another spring, another member of the Sox taking shots at Alex Rodriguez. This time, however, it isn't the Boston Red Sox; it's Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen.

Guillen, in an interview with Sports Illustrated, targeted A-Rod's much-publicized back and forth standing whether to play in the World Baseball Classic for the Dominican Republic or United States.

"Alex was kissing Latino people's asses," Guillen, who's from Venezuela, said in the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated. "He knew he wasn't going to play for the Dominicans; he's not a Dominican!"

Rodriguez, who has dual citizenship in the Dominican Republic and United States, decided to play for the American squad after once saying he wasn't going to play in the WBC because choosing a team was too difficult. Guillen apparently found his wishy-washy attitude to be disingenuous.

"I hate hypocrites: He's full of [expletive]," Guillen told Sports Illustrated. "The Dominican team doesn't need his ass. It's the same with [Nomar] Garciaparra playing for Mexico. Garciaparra only knows Cancun because he went to visit."

The USA team is superior to any team.
Look no further than the pitching.

Your fixation with A-Rod is beginning to border on disturbing. It appears that, like most other Red Sox "fans," you would much rather bash the Yankees than cheer for the Red Sox.

P.S. we heard you the first 2 times you posted about this.

Awww, did I hurt your feelings? You're disturbed? I'd say you've got a fixation with me then, bud. And where exactly are my other two posts about Ozzie Guillen's opinion of ARod?

Obviously, you're referring to Shocker since he's the only one who "started a verbal fight" in this thread. Is that right?

Yes. I am also refering to you, socal, ect.

If you guys have a problem with one another, take it up in the general discusion forum, not here. If you want to talk shop about the Yankees, Boston, whatever, thats fine. Just dont make personal attacks here.

Thanks.

Yes.



Mickeef, all I am trying to do here is keep away from the childish spats that this message board is prone to. If I have came off like I was targeting you, I'm sorry. I'm not. I wanted to tell you and everyone in this section, I will not tolerate childish behavior.

Thanks

Looks like Ozzie back peddled and apoligized to A-Rod....although I could only understand 20% of what he was actually saying.

That's not a problem. I just know that the squeaky wheels here usually get the grease- that is posters who like to dish out the insults, but whine to you guys when they don't like what comes back at them.

Didn't backpedal. He's not sorry, he just didn't want the fine to be as bad.

A-Rod was born in America...and I think he's only part Dominican...I may be wrong on that one...

A-Rod is still a piece of shit.

A-Rod was a victim of what most hispanic go through everyday...Love for this country, or love for where you came from. Ozzie should be more understanding of what A-Rod is going through.

I don't agree with what Ozzie said and I obviously know even if A Rod retired today he'd be known as a much better hitter then Ozzie but... what exactly has A rod won?
