Sox' Guillen nails the slackers

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen put it to the players who don't appear to want to give the fans their best effort. Ozzie Guillen rips them again after he launched an earlier public criticism of players who don't seem embarrassed by a [bleeping] bad game.

The only thing missing from this excellent declamation was the fact that it applies to much more than baseball. Read it and you'll see what I mean. Here's just a part of it:

The problem we have in baseball is that the people who run this thing, they let players do whatever they want, and that's why they do whatever they (bleeping) want to do....

Don't worry about it, this is the big leagues. If we lose a game, who cares? We are out of the pennant race....

I grew up a different way. I grow up, when you lose, it hurts. Respect the game, respect your teammates, respect people paying. Look at how many people walked out of [Saturday's game] disappointed. And we don't respect the people that just watched our game, and be embarrassed about the way we got beat?...

We need many more Ozzie Guillens.
