Well, Oney just retweeted the comments.

Ozney and Ozzie Jr. seem classy. Maybe I'm grading them on a Guillen curve.

No, I agree with you. Oney's having a bunch of melodramatic Twitter fights right now with Sox fans. It's hilarious to watch.

I'm so conflicted with him. I often want to reply and unload on his ridiculous comments, but I also am somewhat amused by the drama.

Ozney is the only one, at least publicly, taking this with any sort of maturity or grace. I understand Ozzie's disappointment, but he needs to take a step back and get a slap of reality... Should my son play professional baseball or go to college on an athletic scholarship? 99% of high school seniors would trade places with them in a heartbeat.

Oney is a crybaby, but at least his psychotic ramblings are funny. Seriously, bro, you hit .120 in Rookie ball. Get over yourself. You're a member of the Lucky Sperm Club.

After you get to a certain point in the draft, the picks are a crapshoot. The White Sox could have selected Ozney 10 rounds earlier and no one would have batted an eye. I wonder if its even remotely possible that Oney's behavior caused the White Sox to wait. I'm sure they were at the point where they knew it was the White Sox or nothing. Believe me, if scouts don't think you will sign, unless you are first or maybe second round material talent wise, you aren't going to get picked unless its an organization throwing someone a bone by drafting a relative or neighbor or something of the sort. .

But, here we go again with the White Sox against The Guillens.

The family needs to get over themselves. Really - what other organization has the head coaches family involved in so much bull****?

It's embarrassing to me as a fan.

Sox take Thomas Windle out of Osseo HS (MN) in 28th round. I actually know his older brother pretty well and have played alot of hockey with both of them. The kid is a talented athlete and a hell of a ball player. Currently committed to Minnesota for next year though, so he may be a tough sign.

Another Guillen family bashfest? It was much better during ST. Now it's just ridiculous.

Ozney is the only one to not completely make a jackass out of themselves (at least AFAIK). Jr. is a complete **** like Oney and Ozzie, but he's kept it a little cleaner the past year or two.

That might be true. My perceptions are stemming mainly from how he conducts himself over twitter.

Waiting to draft Ozney could be a slap in the face...at first they don't want to draft him because his father's a pain in the ass...then Oney starts bashing them on Twitter, so they decide to take him in a low round so that no other team can draft him...

Um, why didn't Kenny ask Ozzie what round to pick him, or just not bother? Ozzie said in the postgame Ozney is going to school. Ok, so why didn't he say "pick him by X round, or don't waste a pick"?
