Ozzie Guillen says Bryce Harper ‘might not make it’

Ozzie Guillen isn’t over being disrepected by Bryce Harper during Sunday’s game. Not even close.

CSN Washington’s Mark Zuckerman has the quotes from Guillen’s rant prior to Monday’s game.

“I like this kid,” Guillen said. “I think this kid is good for baseball. He’s going to be better. But if this kid continues to do that ****, he might not make it. Because they’re going to fool around with the wrong guy, and that wrong guy will kick his ass. He might not make it.”

As for that wrong guy, well, it won’t be Guillen. Referring to how Nationals manager Davey Johnson said Guillen was trying to intimidate Harper during Sunday’s game, Guillen said:

I wish this happened two years ago. Then I would’ve told Davey what I feel. And I would’ve told this kid what I feel. Intimidate? Pfft. I never intimidate people. For what? Do I look like I intimidate anybody? I swear, if we fight, that kid will kick my ass. You think I’m going to intimidate him?

No, probably not.

Guillen said the Marlins have no plans to retaliate for Sunday’s incident, which boiled down to Guillen complaining about the pine tar on Harper’s bat, Harper pointing his clean bat towards the Marlins dugout after making a switch and Guillen dropping some f-bombs on the kid.

“He showed me up,” Guillen said. “I never showed him up. Not one thing about it.”

    Here is a dipsh*t that played how many years in the bigs and never got his actual citizenship until like 2002. Go back to the DR or wherever you came from. Maybe you can coach the Cuban national team Oz…..

    I wonder how much Stupid is left in Ozzie’s mouth?

      The dumbest, most embarrassing thing to happen to a player is to get picked off on the hidden ball trick. If it happens, that player makes gosh-darned sure it never happens again. It happened to Ozzie THREE TIMES in his career, TWICE in one year.

      “How much stupid is left in Ozzie’s mouth”? He’s drawing from a very deep well.
