CHICAGO — One of Ozzie Guillen’s sons is firing back at former White Sox closer Bobby Jenks for comments made about the Chicago manager.
Jenks, who signed a two-year deal with Boston last week, expressed disappointment to MLB.com that the White Sox decided not to re-sign him. He told the website he was “looking forward to playing for a manager who knows how to run a bullpen.”
Oney Guillen called Jenks a “punk” in a series of Twitter posts.
In one, he wrote that Jenks should “be a man and tell the manager or the coaching staff how u feel or the organization when u were with the sox not when u leave.” In another, he wrote that Jenks “cried in the managers office bc u have problems now u go and talk bad about the sox after they protected u for 7 years ungrateful.”
Oney Guillen resigned from his job in the scouting department in March after the organization took exception to some of his tweets. He previously posted critical comments of White Sox general manager Ken Williams.
The White Sox distanced themselves from Oney Guillen’s latest comments, saying he is “not a member of the White Sox organization, and in no way does he speak for the Chicago White Sox.”
