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.
