Marlins Bribing Fans to Stuff All-Star Ballot Boxes with Tickets

Ozzie Guillen Is a Funny Dude

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is easily one of my favorite personalities in Major League Baseball. The guy will crack jokes at other player’s expenses, and he gets off legendary rants when he’s frustrated. The best part about Ozzie is that he just tells things like it is.
