Fire Ozzie ... yeah, right!

If it was any other team, it would sound bizarre when Nick Swisher credited his recent turnaround on hitting coach Greg Walker, and the fact that he also started wearing Toby Halls pants.

But this is the White Sox. The whacky, say-what-they-want White Sox.

They are also are now a season-high 6 games up in the Central Division race with an easy June schedule in front of them. As far as the fire Ozzie naysayers, they have put their assassin rifles away and crawled over to the next story, looking very foolish right now.

Guillen continued to show that he is the perfect man for the South Side of Chicago, and if the Sox were stupid enough to let him go, theres a team in New York called the Mets that would race to bring him to The City That Never Sleeps.

Every time it seems like I say something I send a message to the players they play better, Guillen said on Monday. But They can be mad at me or check themselves in the mirror and say, well, he’s right. I’m not gonna say the stuff in the papers when Im not 100 percent right. Not 99 percent right, I gotta be 100 percent right.

If the players are mad at me, Im here. Not to fight. Im here to talk. I had a meeting with a couple of players before spring training, and I said, Do you guys think I should change? I would do it. I would for them. Hell yeah! For them, yes. Not for the media, not for the fans, not for Kenny [Williams], not for Jerry [Reinsdorf], but for them, I will.
