    Cool The Official Ozzie Guillen Quote Thread

    This thread is meant for fun and entertainment purposes. This will have Ozzie Guillen quotes and will be updated as the season progresses.I will throw in some gems from the past whenever the need arises.

    I'll start with a couple from today;

    Ozzie on spring Training as skipper of a world Championship club as opposed to being a rookie boss in 2004;
    "Now, there are just 30 or 40 reporters around to see how big my mouth really is."


    Ozzie on the team's 4-4 tie against the Cubs in Mesa this afternoon;
    "It's the best game we played all spring."

    This oughtta be on page 5 in a couple weeks. (Unless, of course, you've got Lou Piniella standards.)
    Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
    I hope that's all.

    Ozzie on what would happen if Jerry Reinsdorf told him to shave his goatee;

    "Get another manager, I can't. I want to look old. The last time I shaved my goatee off, people thought it was my fault we played bad."

    Here's Ozzie on Cubs' pitcher Rich Hill after Hill took verbal shots at AJ Pierzynski on Saturday before Hill was sent down to AAA Iowa.

    "Who is Hill? That piece of [bleep] who pitched? Michael [Barrett] realized he was wrong [in punching Pierzynski]. Michael realized he overreacted.

    "But that little [bleep] Hill, he should be in Triple-A. He is going to make Dusty Baker get fired. Shut up, you just got here in the big leagues. When you make a comment like that, it was a cheap shot. You don't know the game.''

    Ozzie responding on whether his kids were involved during the Sox/Cubs brawl:

    "If my kids were on the field, [they were] going to get [their rear end] kicked," Guillen said. "What's Ozzie [Jr.] going to do? Eat somebody. My other one is 20 pounds and the other one is only 14.

    "One is a baby, one is too little, another one, the only thing he can do is eat somebody or drink somebody," Guillen added with a laugh.
