08:19 AM ET 01.03 | If it were up to White Sox relief pitcher Matt Thornton, sports would have little to do with social media. Thornton said recent tweets by manager Ozzie Guillen's son, Oney, about Bobby Jenks were "irritating" and take the focus off baseball. "I'm not a big fan of the social media, personally," Thornton said on ESPN 1000's Talking Baseball. "I don't tweet. I don't Facebook. I don't like it in sports at all. I don't think it's necessary at all. ... What happened here with Oney tweeting what he did, that's crossing a pretty big line in my personal opinion."

One can hope....

Why does Oney know things he shouldn't know in the first place? Oney isn't the real problem.

I think it's a rotten thing when people in an organization can't keep their mouths shut about internal matters and matters involving people's personal issues. I think it's very low class of Ozzie's kid. I don't think Ozzie should be discussing these things withiin earshot of his kid either.

His dad is overrated and washed up so he's trying to bring a little bit of attention back to the family. The white sox need to dump ozzie. The teams identity needs to go another direction

This ****hole Oney just gets too much air time.

yeah. I agree. Oney needs to get a life... he probably has been rejected by too many girls...

Thornton should watch himself...

Oney might have some Dirt on him too :-)

It's going to take a lot more than firing Ozzie to repair their reputation of being classless degenerates.

Agreed, it just seems like the easiest place to start.

Does Oney speak English better than his dad? If not, who could understand his tweets, anyway?
