After Jenks criticized Guillen's handling of his bullpen, Oney Guillen gave a measured response: accusing Jenks of alcoholism, marital problems and punching a clubhouse attendant.
Jenks gave some quotes to MLB.com that indicated he felt disrespected by the White Sox organization. And of Guillen, he had this to say:
I'll always respect [Guillen] as a person and give him credit that's due," Jenks said. "But I want to play for a manager who trusts his relievers, regardless of what's going on.
"With the way Ozzie was talking this winter and the way he treated me, I don't want to fight with the guy. How many times did he question my ability, and then saying how he would love to have me back, but I would have to come to Spring Training and fight for the closer's role like anyone else?
"Why would I come back to that negativity?" Jenks said. "I'm looking forward to playing for a manager who knows how to run a bullpen."
Ozzie's 24-year-old son Oney somehow caught wind of the article, and fired back as only a Guillen can: a diarrhea of Tweets.
hahah memo to bobby jenks get a clue u drink to much and u have had marital problems hugeee ones and the sox stood behind u
they did not air out ur dirty laundry, u came to srping not drinking and then u sucked and started srinking again be a man
be a man and tell the manager or the coaching staff how u feel or the organization when u were with the sox not when u leave
u cried in the managers office bc u have problems now u go and talk bad about the sox after they protected u for 7 years ungrateful.
if it wasnt for u and mainly u freddy garcia would have like 17 wins and the sox would have beat the twins
and u self diagnosed urself bc u didnt want to pitch un real i hope the sox let this guiy fucking have it
oh and yes i remember clearly u blowing a hugee game in 09 and u laughing ur bearded ass off while everyone busting there tail
i thought u were a man not some punk who runs away and talks bullshit. u coward. say it to there face when u were with them
dont make me air out more then i have 2 say ur sorry dont disrespect the White sox ever
now u know what piece of shit person u rooted for chicago. the ones that leave and talk bad about ur team
and u say the manager didnt trust u? he kept putting ur fat ass there and u kept blowing it, he never took u away from that role unreal
go read it its a scott merkin piece its a dandy, i hope people say what they really feel instead of me
although it wouldnt surprise me if the sox take the high road and be classy instead of destroying this yellow beard dipping idiot
and to think u were actually a cool guy and ur word meant something, to bad u dont hit in the AL so they can drill that ass.
one little story remember when u couldnt handle ur drinking and u hit a poor arizona clubby in the face i do. and later u covered it with
Im sorry thats ur answer to everything. How can u disrespect ur ex team like that.
How would Oney know all this personal stuff about Jenks? It's possible Ozzie loves nothing more than to come home and gossip, but remember, Oney was actually part of the organization for a while as a video coordinator. He was fired last spring after sending negative Tweets about the team. Shocking, I know.
