White Sox' Guillen yanks Rios

DENVER — Citing a lack of hustle, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen removed center fielder Alex Rios during the seventh inning of the Sox’ 3-2 loss in 13 innings to the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

Rios, who dropped a fly ball and was 0-for-3, flied out to right field during the seventh. He was replaced in the field by Brent Lillibridge in the bottom of the inning.

“Rios don’t run the bases, that’s why I got him out of the game,” Guillen said. “It’s not the first time it happened. I don’t like the way he run the bases.

“And that’s a message for everyone: If they don’t f—ing run the bases, their reputation comes on me and I have a greater reputation in this f—ing game to do it that way. They don’t run the bases, they’re out of the game. I don’t give a s— if it’s Paul Konerko or Adam Dunn or anyone. You don’t run the bases you’re out of the game.”
