Earlier this season, he dismissed the supposed curses in Boston and the north side of Chicago in terms that can't be reprinted here. And he was no more breezy, nor less romantic, explaining why the south side of the city has remained barren of championships since 1917:

``Lousy teams,'' Guillen said, only he chose an adjective way on the other side of lousy. Looking up to see a reporter's exasperated grin, Guillen volunteered to help out. He pointed to the notebook and said, ``Just put down 'bleep.' It's OK. Lots of things I say in the paper have bleeps in them.''

Apparently, that's not the only place. Chicago coach Joey Cora, like Guillen a former White Sox player, was preparing to hit some practice groundballs when someone asked what he knew about the curse. He paused and looked around, checking to see if Guillen was within earshot.

``I don't know nothing about any curse on this team,'' he said. ``The only reason I know about the Red Sox or the Cubs is because I was home watching the playoffs on TV last year and they made a big deal on TV.

``The curse we've got to worry about is the curse of Manny Ramirez (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/5132/). And David Ortiz (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/5909/),'' he added. ``Not Shoeless Joe Jackson.''
