Guillen's rant rattles ranks but revitalizes White Sox

Bill's Rant

June 10, 2008|By BILL ORDINE

Speaking of rants, we defer to the master - Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen.

About a week ago, Guillen went on one of his periodic profane tirades, berating his team's lack of offense after the White Sox scored just four runs in three losses to the Tampa Bay Rays, mentioning by name hitting coach Greg Walker and general manager Kenny Williams. Walker's role was obvious. Williams' name came up because Guillen was pushing the GM to make some moves.

Neither Walker nor Williams was keen on having his reputation tossed under a Greyhound, but since then, the White Sox have gone on a seven-game winning streak and have averaged nearly nine runs a game in opening a 6 1/2 -game lead over the second-place Minnesota Twins in the American League Central.
