Will Magglio ever stop Whining?

filed by George Bova

February 7. 2005

If Sox Fans thought Magglio Ordonez would finally stop whining about the Sox after finally getting a fat new contract, they were wrong.

If Sox Fans thought Magglio Ordonez had any class, they were wrong about that, too.

And if Sox Fans thought their team would finally catch a break in the Chicago media, least of all from the Cubune... well these Sox Fans are truly clueless.

The very morning Magglio and his agent show up in Detroit to seal the deal that will put the Tigers on the line for as much as $75 million to the gimpy ex-Sox, Magglio shows up in the Chicago papers with (drumroll, please) more rips on the Sox. 

It's not even worth recounting any longer.  It's been the same whine-O-rama from this guy for over two months now.  He thinks he deserved more than the $70 million the Sox offered, but he doesn't feel obligated to let them examine his knee first.  He led the Cubs to believe he would accept a hometown discount but spurned their offer, too.  He took less guaranteed money than the Sox offered, but claims he is "vindicated" because Scott Boras found a chump -- albeit not such a chump as to offer the money guaranteed, of course.

Is anyone asking Magglio why he had to accept non-guaranteed money?  Or why the Cubs were misled?  Or why the Sox guaranteed money wasn't as good as the Tigers' non-guaranteed money?  Or the announced workout last December that never happened?

Is it too much for somebody in the Chicago media to ask these questions of Magglio Ordonez?
