Default Ozzie vs. KW part II?

If anyone follows Ozzie's twitter, you've probably noticed he's had some odd tweets (more odd than usual).

They've been discussing it on B&B, and one source that Bernstein says is close to the Guillen family is claiming that they are upset, once again, over Ozney not being drafted. It's been suggested that the Guillens actually feel like the Sox screwed them over since they supposedly led them to believe that Ozney was going to be drafted in the teens.

Just when the team is starting to look good, this **** starts to flare up again.

I heard it also. I wonder who Bernstein's ''source'' is? Cowley?
He says it is somebody close to the family....so of course that is the story that they would put out.

Bottom line, Ozney was not drafted by anyone in the league...could it be that he is not that good?

I haven't seen anything in his recent tweets to suggest that he is angry with the White Sox or Kenny. He was upset over something last night and then mentioned something about Sean Penn and Venezuela, so I think that there might have been something that happened there that he is upset/worried about. Even last year the real problem was with Oney's tweets and Kenny's reaction to them, Ozzie's comments to the media were restrained. Plus, after all that happened we went 25-5.

The tweets were odd (and even more unintelligible than usual), but I don't see any connection. There was certainly nothing inflammatory about the tweets IMO.

It was suggested that the Sox told other teams not to touch him since they were going to draft him which is why the Guillens feel screwed.

This is all hearsay though.

I think it's just media speculation. There is nothing inflammatory about his tweets of late, the only one of late was something like he was very angry about something, and that could be anything, that tweet was also followed shortly by the thing about Venezuela and Sean Penn.

Well, whatever it is, I'm sure we'll know before the game tonight.

They've been discussing it on B&B,
Credibility of the gossip went to zero at this point.

Given how poorly the Sox draft and develop players, it honestly would have been worth it to just waste a 15th or 16th round pick on the little Guillen just so we don't have to sit through this family feud nonsense again.

Or if they hadn't drafted Ken Williams Jr, which seems to be why they're so peeved.

My feelings as well. I mean nepotism is pretty common in the baseball draft and this wouldn't have been the first time the Sox did it for one of their own. Didn't they draft Shueler's daughter one year?

If that's all it takes, why didn't they give the heads up they were drafting Bryce Harper?

If Ozney was much of a prospect, other teams wouldn't have passed him up 50 or 60 or 70 times.

The Sox probably didn't want to insult him again..he was drafted in the teens last year, and Ozney went back to school, under weight of such disrespect.

Ozzie vs. KW part I was rumor-mongering by Joe Cowley. Let's not let this be a distraction again.
