The news comes straight from Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, who claims that the White Sox and the Florida Marlins are in the midst of a deal that would send Ozzie (and his talents) to South Beach. It is expected to be completed by the time the White Sox finish up against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Well, all you can do is admit that it was fun while it lasted. The White Sox enjoyed their share of lows under Ozzie's watch, but they enjoyed some highs too, most notably the organization's first World Series victory in nearly 90 years back in 2005.
Ozzie himself made sure there was never a dull moment. Whenever his career ends, he will go down as one of the most colorful managers in the history of baseball. He never shied away from telling it like it is, and he usually made sure to mix in a few F bombs when he did.
For the sake of paying tribute to Ozzie's personality, why don't we go ahead and take a look back at 10 of his most outrageous moments?
