oh man, I think I like this guy... Me too. Doesn't he get you excited. Right or wrong, I'm down with how he wants things done. Even better, I think he is allowing Coop to make a lot of calls, where his opinon was only a consideration before. I think the coaches are more on the same page now, which I like a lot.

Guillen said the fifth starter's job is wide open.

Who's our fourth starter?

I love it. In the Trib today, he said every pitcher will be capable of pitching 9 innings. Now I know that doesn't mean every pitcher will pitch a CG every night, but I remember Manuel taking out starters who were doing just fine.

I'm sure that after getting an earful at SoxFest, Ozzie is sending that exact message to the fans. The same goes for his statements that winning in April and May is just as important as winning at any other time.
