08:20 AM ET 11.01 | Ozzie Guillen may have found a way to tweak his GM right through the offseason and into 2011. Straight out of a Ken Williams nightmare, a little blog debuted Saturday that should keep things interesting on the South Side -- at least until the White Sox brass pulls the plug. [Guillen's] long-threatened blog made its debut on the MLBlogs Network, and there are rumors a website -- once the source of tension between the Sox manager and general manager -- will be unveiled in January. The title for Guillen's blog is "Ozzie Speaks," and the subhead says: "Listen up, I've got a lot to say." Guillen promises to post regularly, and his initial entry prompted fans to ask him questions he will try to answer. Among the first questions from a reader: "How long till Kenny says shut it down?? ;)"

Ozzie is a bum, he's not to be an entertainer, he should try ball playing.

guillen has to focus on his job, and stop trying to safe the world with his useable comments, just focus on the manager job!

I like the guy. I get sick of the same old cliches coaches spew out.

May be the Sox should get rid of both Kenny and Ozzie...

Not Kenny. He is a great GM and should stay as long as Reinsdorf will have him.

If it comes down to GM vs. Manager or Coach, Jerry Reinsdorf has a record of landing on the GM's side. He let Hawk Harrelson,as GM, replace Tony LaRussa and Jerry Crouse break-up the Phil Jackson-Michael Jordan Bulls. Unless Guillen is putting enough butts in the seats to override any problems Reinsdorf will probably back the man that reports to him [Williams], not the man who reports to GM. Guillen is found of Jack McKeon's statement[I think] about unless a Manager retires or is part of ownership he will eventually be fired.
I like Guillen because he doesn't manage just straight out the 'book.'
As for his English, he isn't the 1st person who says things in English before his Spanish thinking mind has completely translated what he is saying.
I don't always fully translate into proper English what I am saying either and the only non-English I know is what I remember in Latin from being an altar boy 50 years ago.
When I worked in a prison we called it," Letting alligator mouth override canary a-double ess."
