Managing a professional sports team ought not be considered a form of indentured servitude. "Loyalty" to the club ought not mean that you should stay put even though the market says you can make more money elsewhere.
So, I don't understand the criticism of Ozzie Guillen for leaving the White Sox and signing on with the Florida Marlins, because he'll get more money.
Unlike the sports sages, I don't know just how important a good manager is in general, or Ozzie Guillen in particular. He brought Chicago a World Series victory for the first time in my lifetime, and for that, he deserves credit. In my book, it is as admirable as his describing former Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti with a "derogatory term," for which he was ordered to sensitivity training.
Also unlike many media sages, I don't consider it to be a part of my job to direct someone to be fired, whether that someone is in sports or politics. (Disclosure: As a member of the Sun-Times editorial board it was part of my job to endorse political candidates--as if I knew more than the voters, which claim I can't make.)
Those sports columnists who had trouble with Guillen's decision to leave to advance his career and bank account should consider this: Would they have sat still if as novices they had been permanently assigned the lowly job of doing the agate sports stats out of some sense of loyalty to the newspaper? I sort of doubt it.
