If he ever leaves baseball, Ozzie Guillen should go straight into advertising.
“Every time I make up a line, people make money off of me,” Ozzie said Thursday.
They sure do, especially up in Minneapolis.
In 2006, Ozzie referred to the scrappy Twins as “little piranhas,” and T-shirts up in the Land of the Walleye are still being sold.
The White Sox’ manager just might have topped himself on Tuesday. After the Sox dropped both ends of a double-header to Toronto, Ozzie threw out his latest gem:
“We have to fight like a cat, paws up.”
I almost laughed out loud, just trying to picture a cat with his/her dukes up in the air.
Ozzie was wearing a “Paws Up” T-shirt on Thursday, and he was asked about where the line came from.
