Default Oney Guillen Appreciation Thread

It was shown on the scoreboard tonight that Oney Guillen retired.

Is Ozzie promoting him back as a translator, into the MLB dugout?

Here's hoping the Sox reward his long and distinguished service to the organization with an Oney Guillen day at the Cell!

I think the Oney Guillen story has the making of the sequel to Field Of Dreams part II.


He will have to cross the baseline to perform a crucial language translation and in the process giving up his only shot to a big league AB.

Dammit, I kind of liked having someone in the organization that was an inferior baseball player than me... Sort of kept a small glimmer of the dream alive.

At least I still have Kenny Williams, Jr.
