Guillen was pushed over the top after Saturday’s game where Paul Konerko, Scott Podsednik and Gordon Beckham all got hit by pitches from the Cleveland Indians staff.
“Yesterday I get upset, they hit one guy and they throw in into another guy. I got upset. I know for a fact they’re not throwing at nobody, but enough is enough,” Guillen said. “I have Konerko bruised all over the place. Around the league, be careful because we’re going to hit people. I don’t care if I get suspended because I need to protect my players.”
Ozzie Guillen speaking on baseball’s “unspoken rule” should surprise no one. And once White Sox pitchers start peggin’ the rest of the league, that too should surprise no one. Because all Guillen has is his balls and his word and he aint breaking either one for anybody. Get some rest while suspension, Ozzie.
