Before the Chicago White Sox 5-4 win over the Cleveland Indians, one in which umpire Joe West once again did his best to get on T.V. by calling two balks on Mark Buehrle, who had one balk in his previous 692.1 innings pitched, and ejecting Guillen and Buehrle before the finish of the third inning, Ozzie Guillen signed some autographs.
One Indians fan got a little more than just Ozzie's John Hancock as Guillen wrote "Bye Bye LeBron" on one side and "When are you going to win anything in sports? Please," on the other side.
I hope Ozzie actually put his name somewhere on the ball and the person wasn't between the ages of five and eight because that is cold-blooded.
Ozzie has always been hard on the Indians, notably raising his arms up to his neck in choking fashion after sweeping the Indians with replacement players in the final series of 2005, ending the Indians wildcard hopes after dropping the White Sox lead in the American League Central from 15 in August down to 1.5 games in the final week of September.
Beware having Ozzie sign a ball for you if you are wearing different team colors.
