We all know Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is loco homes, but we don’t know too much about his son Oney.
Well the phrase “like father like son” has never been so true. Oney had a position with the White Sox scouting and video departments, but last March Oney told WSCR-AM radio that he didn’t agree with comments his father made on his twitter account, and later that month he resigned.
Oney, like his father made his own controversial tweet directed at White Sox GM Kenny Williams, whom the Guillens have always had a strange relationship with.
Oney is talking about Williams’ past for selecting black players, and on Tuesday, the White Sox used their first pick in the MLB amateur draft to get Keenyn Walker, a 6-foot-3 outfielder who happens to be black (The White Sox also drafted Williams’ son, Kenny Williams Jr., in the sixth round in 2008 and drafted another black outfielder in the 2009 first round in Jared Mitchell).
So when Ozzie caught wind of the tweet, you can bet your ass that another classic Ozzie video would come about…….yeah it did…CLICK HERE TO SEE IT.
Oney’s tweets also caused conflict last year, when he berated the team for not having enough relief pitching. “Eventually the truth will come out. You can put makeup on a pig all u want. At the end of the day. Still a pig,” he wrote at the time, again blaming Kenny Williams for the team’s problems.
Weird stuff goes down in Chicago. With all that beef and some of the craziness that is Ozzie Guillen, you’d think he’d get the axe already. I for one am glad, I LOVE Ozzie and his crazy tirades.
