leaving no baseball manager behind

Today was Ozzie’s first day of sensitivity school. So Ozzie….how was your first day?

(from CBS Sportsline)Ozzie: “There are so many different languages you can use when you are going to talk to somebody. There are a lot of things you cannot say about anybody, even when you want to say them,” Guillen said.

“It was kind of cool. I thought it was just like, ‘Oh my God, I’ll just go to sleep here and let this guy talk.’ I did the talking, most of the time. He asked me a lot of questions.”

“Be polite,” Guillen said. “The thing I told the guy, I say I don’t need to be polite, I need to speak better English. I understand the system better. A lot of people thought I was making the excuse of not being from this country. No, I have 26 years here and I know what every little word means to anybody, that’s no excuse.

“The guy said, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything,”‘ Guillen added. “I say, ‘If you have to say that to somebody, don’t tell me what then. I’m not going to say that.’ I will be the same guy, use a different word.”
