Ozzie was ejected in the sixth inning of the Marlins-Red Sox spring training game Monday for arguing a call. He had to walk across the field to exit through the Boston dugout. Opposing manager Bobby Valentine apparently waved him goodbye. Ozzie didn’t see the smug sendoff, but he knows what he would have said had he seen it.
“I didn’t see it,” Guillen said. “I would have told him to go and (expletive) himself, too. That’s the way Ozzie Guillen is.”
God bless Ozzie Guillen. Guillen apparently believed a ball hit to first that was called foul was actually fair, and he believed the umpire who made the call wasn’t in position to do so. Valentine seemed amused by that fact, hence the wave. Guess Bobby V. isn’t as innocent as the folksy character he made himself out to be on “Baseball Tonight.”
