They took another catcher in the 20th round. Hey Oney, there's 29 other teams. Why aren't you complaining about them?

Simple. The other 29 teams don't employ his father!

If Ozney was worth a higher pick, he would have been drafted by someone else by now.
The sad thing is, this isn't even the worst thing Oney has said about the organization since his swift dismissal.

Ozney selected in the 22nd round by the Sox - basically a slap in the face as far as the Guillens are concerned. He will go to USF says Oz. 2 minutes ago via API

cst_sox
Ozzie said he would pay him the $50,000 bonus to not sign with the Sox and instead go to school or "Nike town.'' 1 minute ago via API

MDGonzales
"It's not an easy day for the family,'' Ozzie Guillen Sr. said of Ozney's selection in the 22nd round. could enroll in summer school at USF 1 minute ago via web

cst_sox
Translation - the cold war between manager and GM is as frigid as ever. less than 20 seconds ago via API

Why is a slap in the face? If the guy was a better prospect than a 22nd round selection wouldn't another team have taken him?

It's a good question. He's actually a decent prospect. Much better than Oney. I've seen estimates of 5th to 10th round, and 8th to 10th by multiple sources. He does have some leverage with his commitment to USF, and teams probably figured it was the White Sox or college for the kid. Who knows?

It could be Cowley stirring up ****. On the other hand, maybe I just haven't been around baseball long, but why take it so personally? I know he's Ozzie's son, but KW needs to do what's best for the team, no?

FWIW, I have no issues with Ozney. Same with Ozzie Jr. I'd be indifferent if he was in the Sox system. It's Oney and Ozzie who are intolerable and need tickets out of town.

I really hope this "slap in the face" nonsense is just the media. Otherwise, how ridiculous.
