Ozzie Guillen To Manage White Sox In 2011

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, who is under contract for 2011, told Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times that he'll be "with the White Sox next season" and that he wants to return (Twitter links). There has been uncertainty around Guillen, partly because of the many upcoming managerial vacancies and partly because he appeared to want more job security.

The Marlins, in particular, seemed like a potential fit, but Guillen isn't going anywhere soon. GM Kenny Williams says he won't allow rival teams to interview Guillen for potential jobs. The 46-year-old is now in his seventh season as White Sox manager and has a regular season record of 595-533. Guillen, who led the team to a World Weries title in 2005, steered Chicago back into contention this year after a poor start to the season.

Coolness, Ozzie’s uniqueness and passion for the game is good for the game and for the White Sox. At least in my opinion.

Why would anyone want an unintelligible mercurial crybaby managing their team?

Ozzie needs to go away. I’m done with him. He sure did a great job “steering” us into and out of contention this year… and steering us into a rotating DH…

Guillen is one of the most successful White Sox managers over the past 20 years. Yeah he is a soap opera with legs but he does win. Lamont did better but he had some really awesome players. This year sucked because yes we had a bad DH but we also lost Peavy, Quentin sucked, most everyone sucked the first two months and Minnesota has just been filthy.

If our sole criteria is world series victories, then what has Jim Leyland done since he started managing the Tigers? What have the Tigers done since ’84?
