Former Chicago White Sox and Miami Marlins manager
Ozzie Guillen told TMZ Sports that he's interested in managing at the MLB level again."I think I'm better now. ... I'm mature. I'm more older George Foster Jersey ," he said. "I know the game a little bit better working on TV. Managing Venezuela for the last three years in Winter Leagues has helped me a lot, because it's harder to manage in Venezuela than to manage in the big leagues, no doubt."As for any MLB front offices or general managers who might have interest in bringing Guillen aboard, he noted:"Try me. Get to know me. Ozzie Guillen's not the same way 14 or 15 years ago."Guillen, 54, began his MLB career as a player, hitting .264 with 28 homers, 619 RBI, 773 runs and 169 stolen bases in 16 seasons for the Chicago White Sox , Baltimore Orioles, Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays. He was the 1985 AL Rookie of the Year, played in three All-Star Games and won a Gold Glove.He then took over as the White Sox manager in 2004, holding the position through the 2011 season. He went 678-617 in Chicago, leading the team to a World Series title in 2005 and two postseason berths overall. After his stint with the White Sox, he spent one season as Marlins manager, going 69-93.Guillen's managerial stints became as known for hiscolorful personalityand outspoken demeanor as for his tactical appraising of the game. That personality went too far for many people in 2012, however, when Guillen said thathe lovedformer Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.While he would later apologize for his remarks , he was suspended five games by MLB. And his comments were not well-received in Miami, a city with a large population of Cuban Americans.As Guillen toldTMZSports, spending time as an analyst for ESPNDeporteshas given him a better understanding for measuring his words carefully and remaining "calm.""Before, we just say whatever we want," Guillen said. "Now, you have to be careful." DETROIT (AP) — Arriving later than normal, Rick Renteria was a little surprised by the amount of traffic around the ballpark.Once inside, he watched his offense do almost nothing for seven innings — before a six-run eighth gave the Chicago manager a victory after a tough few days.Yoan Moncada and Tim Anderson each hit a two-run double in the eighth, and the White Sox rallied for a 6-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night in Renteria’s return to the dugout. Renteria had missed four games after experiencing lightheadedness Monday in Minnesota.“I can tell you right now that I am cleared to go , full tilt,” Renteria said after Friday’s game. “I’m going to keep it at that.”Renteria was released from a Minnesota hospital Tuesday. He spent time in Chicago, but on Friday the team said his medical tests were finished.Bench coach Joe McEwing had been managing in Renteria’s absence, and he was prepared to do so again. About two hours before the first pitch, he said Renteria was en route, but it wasn’t clear when he’d be arriving. Renteria was in the dugout when Chicago batted in the top of the first.“It was quite a bit of traffic out there around the ballpark. I didn’t realize they closed everything off,” Renteria said. “So then I got over by where the bus usually drops us off and took my suitcase out, and they escorted me into the media entrance. It actually was pretty easy, but it’s just nice to get back to the ballpark.”Chicago was down 3-0 before breaking through against All-Star reliever Joe Jimenez (4-3) and closer Shane Greene. With one out in the eighth Jason Kipnis Jersey , Moncada hit a bases-loaded double that made it 3-2 and chased Jimenez.Greene came on and allowed an RBI single by Avisail Garcia, an RBI double by Daniel Palka and Anderson’s double that made it 6-3.Thyago Vieira (1-0) got his first career victory. He retired the only batter he faced in the seventh.The White Sox improved to 4-10 this season against Detroit.Michael Fulmer allowed two hits in 4 2/3 innings for the Tigers in his return from a left oblique strain. Manager Ron Gardenhire had hoped to limit the right-hander to around 70 pitches. He ended up pulling him after 77.Fulmer hadn’t pitched since July 14.“I’m just glad to be back. It was a shorter rehab than anyone expected, including me, so that was a positive,” Fulmer said. “Everything felt good, but I would have liked to go a little longer. Gardy made the call so fast that I never got a chance to say anything — I told him to wait a little longer so I look better next time.”Victor Alcantara and Daniel Stumpf combined to retire all seven of their hitters, but in the eighth, Detroit’s more acclaimed relievers let the game slip away.Nicholas Castellanos had two RBIs and also brought in the Tigers’ other run with a double-play grounder.Chicago starter Reynaldo Lopez allowed two runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked three.“I wasn’t feeling as good as I wanted,” Lopez said through a translator. “For me it was a kind of challenge today to throw the first pitch for a strike.”Jose Iglesias singled past first baseman Nicky Delmonico in the first Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey , giving the Tigers runners at the corners with nobody out. Castellanos hit into a double play, and Detroit took a 1-0 lead.Castellanos added RBI singles with two outs in the third and seventh.NO DECISIONIt was a fifth consecutive no-decision for Lopez, who now has 13 of them on the season. Lopez has a 3.46 ERA in those 13 no-decisions.Alcantara had a chance to pick up his first major league victory before Chicago’s big eighth inning. The Detroit reliever is still 0-0 after 22 career appearances.TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: OF JaCoby Jones (right hamstring strain) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo.UP NEXTThe Tigers send LHP Ryan Carpenter (1-1) to the mound Saturday night against Chicago RHP Lucas Giolito (9-9). Giolito’s 6.08 ERA is the highest in the major leagues for any pitcher who qualifies for the ERA title.
