Cold war

The Yankees and White Sox havent had many problems with each other on the field.

Off the field? Thats a different story.

There has been a cold war going on between the security at U.S. Cellular Field many of them current or former Chicago cops and the wanna-be CIA agents that travel with the Bronx Bombers and deem themselves security.

It got so heated a few years back, that a certain U.S. Cellular security guard in the visitors clubhouse to this day has to be moved out of that post when New Yorks in town for fear of what he would do to the Yanks rent-a-cops if tempers escalated.

Even manager Ozzie Guillen was mystified with the amount of security New York has when they come to the South Side.

You know what’s funny? Guillen said on Wednesday. Why were there so many security people? I leave [Tuesday] night to my car, and I got 30 people from here to the garage. What are you doing here? New York is in town. Nothing is going to happen to those guys walking through the tunnel. That’s embarrassing. Because it’s kind of weird. We go to New York and don’t get that kind of treatment. And we’re a big league team, too. Nothing against them, but it’s funny how the security works. Make sure those guy are in Rush Street or somewhere. Nothing is going to happen at the ballpark, believe me.”
