Ozzie Guillen saying what I suspect a lot of managers think:
“I’m always bored,” Guillen said. “I’m not playing. You’re sitting around for seven innings. My game starts in the sixth [or] seventh inning. That’s when you see me look around the stands a lot, because you play this game for that many years and coach it and be there for that many years and you’re just managing, it’s a boring game all day for me.”
So boring, in fact, that as Guillen headed up the steps and out of the press room he admitted that he started counting the number of people in the stands who had his name on the back of their jerseys.
“I counted 35,” he said, trying to forget about his team’s performance.
What, you think Guillen sits in the dugout consulting charts about opposing runners’ base stealing percentage?
