Ozzie Guillen talked about that Bobby Jenks-Oney Guillen stuff yesterday, and he voiced some regret over his son sharing clubhouse business on his Twitter feed:
Guillen said he felt ‘‘sad’’ about Jenks’ comments, which came after Jenks signed with the Boston Red Sox last month. But Guillen said his son crossed the line when he tweeted that Jenks ‘‘couldn’t handle ur drinking [sic],” and ‘‘u have had marital problems.’’
‘‘When Oney [tweeted] that, the only thing I was upset about [was] clubhouse stuff,’’ Guillen said. “He grew up in baseball, and he knows the clubhouse stuff — whatever happens in there, everybody knows. . . . In the past, our clubhouse was a temple. Now you can do what you want to do and people find out what happened in the clubhouse. That’s not the first time it happened.’”
That aside, he saves way more words for Jenks, talking about how displeased he was with Jenks comment about Guillen not knowing how to manage a bullpen.
In the grand scheme of things, Jenks’ comments seem pretty minor. Oney Guillen’s stuff, however, is the kind of thing that makes players wonder if what goes on in the White Sox’ clubhouse has any sanctity. I don’t expect Ozzie to come out and excoriate his own son, but at the same time, I don’t think anything he said yesterday will put players’ minds at ease that their business will remain their business if they ever have a personal disagreement with the Guillens.
