Ozzie Guillen On Future With White Sox

Manager Ozzie Guillen met with White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf today, but he says he left the meeting with no resolution about his future, according to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune (Twitter links). Guillen is under contract with the White Sox next year, but he has made it known that he's displeased with his current contract and wants a raise.

"[Bleep] the years. I want more money," he said.

Guillen told Gonzales that he believes GM Kenny Williams would like him to return in 2012, but repeated that he wouldn't return with just one year remaining on his contract. One way or another, Guillen is looking for resolution and it sounds more and more like he's content to leave the White Sox after this season.

"We wish it could be over and we can move on – here or somewhere else," he said.

Marlins manager Jack McKeon announced that he'll retire after the season. Until the Marlins hire a new skipper, Guillen will be linked to the opening in Miami.

    Disregard baseball, acquire currency.

    I use to respect Ozzie for his blunt attitude but he really comes off as a jerk. He won’t return with just 1 year left on his deal? How about honor the contract you signed because since winning the WS you’re team has been less than a “real” playoff contender. 2 mediocre seasons in a week divisions and 3 below .500 finishes doesn’t scream “Sign me or else I walk!!!!!”.

  4. I have trouble believing Ozzy said that

  5. Who in baseball is more entertaining than Ozzie Guillen?

    The guy does not give a flying Fk what anyone thinks of him

    Screw you Ozzie you don’t get to make demands when you produce crappy product

    What am I missing here. The Sox picked up his option for 2012 already.  How can he not return if he’s under contract?  (Excluding, of course, being fired or traded.)  

  12. he is a distraction, and a clown, and a walking blasphemy, I’d be happy to get rid of him and his dumb-tweeter son

  13. also, I dont think its right to let him manage next year, he should be banned for as long as his current deal lasts

    He really comes off as someone just in it for the money, doesn’t he?

    I was joking about JD. I think he cares, he just doesn’t show it. I read an article on him once that said he was raised by his father to “act like you’ve been there before”. So whether it be hitting a ALCS Grand Slam or striking out in the bottom of the ninth he’s not gonna act outlandish.

    Regardless how much JD drew cares about the game, he does not go out of his way spouting 100% useless nonsense nobody outside of the city of Chicago it seems wants to hear.

    reminds you of someone else always making speeches from Chicago that nobody wants to hear and are 100% meaningless.
