    White Sox to Trade Guillen to Marlins

    According to the Chicago Sun-Times, tonight is his last game and a deal is being worked out with Florida. Ozzie's son has already tweeted thanking Sox fans.

    The rumored deal last year, I believe, was Guillen for Logan Morrison. Doubt that's the deal now.

    No doubt nothing Ive seen before. Of course it seems like a win all around. White sox go in a different direction, ozzie still has a job, and the marlins get a good coach. As a twins fan I am glad to see Ozzie go, he is a good coach, and I am happy he is no longer in the division.

    Re: White Sox to Trade Guillen to Marlins

    I love Ozzie but can accept that it is time to move on...what I am not happy about is that Kenny Williams will be hiring the next manager? If one man can be blamed for the White Sox failures recently that man would be Kenny Williams! Peavy, Rios, Dunn...nice use of the company money there Kenny!

    Also...if Ozzie is really getting a 4 year deal worth $16 million...he had to go to Miami!

    10:01pm: The White Sox announced that they have released Guillen from his contract at his request. he won't be in uniform for the season's final two games, according to the team (on Twitter). The White Sox retain rights to compensation if another club hires Guillen to manage in 2012.

    So they don't have to pay him, but they still keep his rights? I guess more will have to come out today.

    Re: White Sox to Trade Guillen to Marlins

    Rumor is that Don Cooper has a deal in place to stay, all other coaches will be shown the door. This day has been coming for a few years now, but I'll miss Ozzie's outspokenness even when it was petty and obnoxious like it so often was. It will be interesting to see who they replace him with, the name that is floating around that is intriguing is former Sox catcher Sandy Palomar Jr.

    MLB.com put up a blog last night from Ozzie that said that he was excited to be managing in Florida next year (but then quickly took it down)...so it is a done deal. I am sure Kenny Williams will get to pick some 26 year old minor-league pitcher that is destined for greatness (sarcasm)!

    I loved Ozzie's candor...even when it was vulgar! If we hire another Jerry Manuel someone will have to wake me up to remind me to watch the Sox!

    Hoping for Dave Martinez. Predicting Sandy Alomar or Buddy Bell.

    I could see Bell...my longshot prediction is Terry Francona. Managed in the minors for the White Sox and left the organization when they hired Bevington...which made Francona look like a genius (most fans should have left when they brought TB in). Francona will be in for a heated winter if the Red Sox don't make the playoffs.
