Sunday Guillen was asked why attendance for the Sox series with the Los Angeles Dodgers was weak (around 22,000 average) when the weekend series with the Cubs at US Cellular Field sold out, his response was pure Ozzie.
"Because our fans are not stupid like Cubs fans," Guillen said. "They know we're [expletive]."
Guillen wasn't through mouthing off. He went on to say that Cubs fans will watch any game at the friendly confines because "Wrigley Field is just a bar."
I think Ozzie Guillen is just getting warmed up.
Ripping Cub fans isn't new for instance when he managed the Cubs in 1983, Lee Elia went off on a expletive tirade that eventually got him fired. Here's the edited version. (Thanks Youtube.com)
And here's longtime Voice of the Cincinnati Reds Marty Brennaman and his broadcast partner Jeff Brantley ripping Cubs fans a year ago for raining baseballs at Wrigley Field.
