    Advice: don't accidently brush up against Ozzie Guillen

    Don't Hit Us Or Else...

    Such misplaced anger. I can understand the frustration, but if you don't think it's on purpose, deal with it. Injuries and wildness are part of the game.

    I'm embarrassed to say this, but I dig Guillen. He keeps creating an "us against you" vibe and many teams respond to that with wins.

    I'm entertained by his brash, but truthful demeanor. And I respect that he speaks his mind openly and honestly.

    On this issue though, I think he's out of line.

    He's a jerk IMO. He acknowledges that the Sox players hit in the game vs the Indians the other night wasn't intentional and that they weren't being thrown at; but he's tired of seeing it so he is going to retaliate?

    So he is going to order his pitchers to retaliate over being unintentionally HBP?

    Going to create some sticky situations and unnecessary ejections.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    GAC, I agree with you - and that is why I said I am embarrassed, but he IS (IMO) toughening up his team for the run. There clearly is no template with Ozzie.

    Ozzie is a fun train wreck to watch for now, but I am sure his act is going to wear off.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Ozzie's overrated. Everyone loves him because he's so different from everyone else and speaks his mind regardless, despite the fact that half the time he comes off sounding like an ignorant fool. He gets a free pass, and it's rather annoying.

    Ozzie is funny, entertaining, and belittled Jay Marrioti but he is sometimes a terrible strategist and lacks common sense from time to time, your average big league manager.

    I can't comment on what effect his personality has on his teams (If any at all), but he's not what he's been hyped up to be as this great manager.
    Baseball is not necessarily an obsessive-compulsive disorder, like washing your hands 100 times a day, but it's beginning to seem that way. We're reaching the point where you can be a truly dedicated, state-of-the-art fan or you can have a life. Take your pick. ~Thomas Boswell

    Having a life is overrated.

    I don't know why a manager has to say this kind of stuff to the media. It should just be implied, like it used to be. Hit ours, we're gonna hit yours.
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    Or some concussions and career altering injuries..... I'm sorry but Guillen is a loser.

    I expect that Ozzie will be getting some vacation time approved by Bud Selig very soon.
