Kenny Williams has compassion for Ozzie

At the end there — and often at the beginning and in the middle — Kenny Williams and Ozzie Guillen fought with one another in Chicago. So it wouldn’t be unexpected if Williams experienced a bit of Schadenfreude as Ozzie Guillen was raked over the coals and forced to apologize for the Castro crap earlier this week.

But nope, when asked about Guillen, Williams struck a different note:

“My standard answer is no comment, and I’d rather talk about the focus of this ball club and what’s happening with this ball club compared to anything else,” Williams said. “But you used the word compassion. I cannot help but have a little bit for somebody that has meant so much to the organization and meant so much to me personally over the years. So I guess the answer to that is question is, yeah, I do have some compassion as to what’s going on.”

That’s awful nice of him. Unless of course he was just offering the quote to ensure that Guillen is in the news for yet another day when, in reality, it seemed like this was all dying down.

Hmm … well-played, Williams. Well-played.

    Clearly, absence makes the heart grow stronger. May your heart grow stronger each day Kenny.

    Need to correct the opening line (Ozzie Smith).

    Kenny going against the grain with his thought pattern? Naw, never!

    Strange how much he looks like Steve van Zandt doing his over the top sopranos scowl.
