Oh my god! The whining over White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen's suspension is just unbelievable. Everyone is saying that he was suspended for two games for calling umpire Hunter Wendelstedt a liar.
That's not why he was suspended.
Ozzie also said this:
"I hope (Wendelstedt) does hold a grudge, because I will hold a grudge. If we have trouble every time I see him, good, I'll take the chance."
What Ozzie just did is to put in question the integrity of any future game in which he and Wendelstedt are a part. And when you make the integrity of the game questionable, you get your ass benched for a few days to think about what you said.
Good move to MLB and Sandy Alderson. You cannot place into question the integrity of the game.
Unless, of course, you are Bud Selig and have 29 teams owning the 30th team. That lack of integrity is AOK.
