Ozzie Guillen wants you to know that the White Sox winning is NOT because he’s gone

Ozzie Guillen returned to Chicago yesterday and he was met by a zillion Chicago reporters who want to talk about his time with the White Sox. And the fact that, now that Ozzie is gone, the White Sox are in first place and playing great.

Ozzie has kind words for Robin Ventura and the Sox in general, but he wants you to know that their winning ways are not the result of addition by subtraction:

“It’s not fair when I see a couple of idiots say the team is playing better because so-and-so’s not here … I don’t blame them a bit about the way they think, but don’t say they’re winning because I’m not there. That’s not fair. That’s not fair at all. They have the same guys as last year. You talk about Greg Walker — how bad a hitting coach he was — well, I think a lot of Braves are doing pretty good.”

There’s video of all of this over at CSNChicago.com.

I still think the best thing Ozzie did yesterday, as mentioned in this morning’s recaps, was to point at the finger on which he wears his World Series ring when the Cubs fans booed him last night.

    Ozzie has become the Tim Tebow of HBT in the fact every other post seems to relate to him

    Ozzie really wanted to say post hoc ergo propter hoc, but he didn’t want to be seen as the smartest man in the room.

    What?

    “You talk about Greg Walker — how bad a hitting coach he was — well, I think a lot of Braves are doing pretty good.”

    By that same logic, should we evaluate Ozzie based on how the Marlins are currently performing?

    Awesome. :)
