Ozzie Guillen’s son needs a time out

Dec 29, 2010, 8:36 AM EDT

Don Corleone and Sonny

In that interview yesterday former White Sox’ closer Bobby Jenks said that he “was looking forward to playing for a manager who knows how to run a bullpen.”  Not the best thing to say about Ozzie Guillen — and probably not true, because I think Ozzie actually does a pretty good overall in terms of bullpen management — but as far as slams go, it was a mild one. And one that you just know Ozzie Guillen doesn’t care a lick about because he doesn’t care a lick about anything like that.

But apparently Ozzie’s son Oney Guillen thinks that Jenks was way out of line. And in his typically mature fashion, he took to Twitter last night to rip Jenks.  Among the highlights: ripping Jenks for being a drinker and having marital problems. Saying that if it wasn’t for Jenks “freddy garcia would have like 17 wins and the sox would have beat the twins.” Calling Jenks a “punk” and a “coward.” He went on and on, accusing Jenks of hitting a clubhouse attendant in the face, hoping that Jenks gets drilled if he ever gets to bat and calling him every other name in the book.

You’ll recall that Oney Guillen was fired from his do-nothing job with the White Sox last spring after some other intemperate tweets. At the time Ozzie Guillen said he wasn’t pleased with his son and that he had spoken to him “about how to express his opinion.”  I’m guessing those lessons didn’t sink in. He still talks when he shouldn’t be.  It’s this kind of thing that caused Solozzo to put a hit out on the Don, for crying out loud.

I do hope that Ozzie has saved and invested his money well, though, and that he has provided for Oney in his will.  Because based on everything we’ve seen from him, this kid is 100% unemployable.

    As a lawyer, do you think there would be any reporters out there that might like this story?

    Having Ozzie counsel discursive temperance is a little bit like being taught how to fly a plane by Ted Stevens’ bush pilot. It sounds to me like the bomba doesn’t fall very far from the tree. I can understand a little better why Ozzie has been rumored to be Macondo-bound some day (shudder): maybe Ozzie thinks his son’s mierdas de llovizna de la boca would get lost in the swill of machismo fugitivo that characterizes local discourse.

    While I agree that Guillen should have just kept his mouth shut. Dude rewatch the Godfather if you think that’s why Solozzo put the hit on the Don.

    Ozzie has a sentimental weakness for his children, as you can see.

      Does this mean that Kenny Williams is going to send out Luca Brasi against Bobby Jenks?

    The kid is a big mouth fool just like his dumb ass father. They should both go back to South America and be Hugo Chavez fetch boys.

      You really think Venezuela is big enough for Hugo and Ozzie?

    Privileged. Yes. Class. No.
