“He’s here, I have to use him; we’ve got only 11 pitchers,” Guillen said. “I don’t have the luxury to [matchup Ohman to lefties]. Maybe later on I will. But he’s got to get his head out of his [expletive]. I don’t want to punish the kid. He had what, two bad games? He knows that, we all know that. I’m not going to change anything.”
It’s probably not the answer many White Sox fans want to hear after the left-hander gave up three runs in each of his first two outings and carried a 27.00 ERA into the second series of the season, this one against Kansas City.
You dumb ****, Ozzie!!! You didn't NEED to go with an 11-man pitching staff! Especially not when you play 12 games in 13 games to start the season! You're punishing Sox fans! Who cares about Ohman's feelings. He's 33 ****ing years old! Who cares about Lillibridge or Milledge. There's a reason why they're the 24th & 25th guys on the roster.
Well we can forget about Ozzie using Ohman as LOOGY. Not all relievers are created equal; especially for LOOGY & closers. But apparently he can't figure that out.
