"I Want to Ruin It for Them"

This happened a few days ago, but I haven't heard about it much in the usual locations. Must be that damned media bias.

Anyway, Ozzie Guillen went off again last week. Here are his actual quotes, presented without comment:
I don't understand the people out there. I don't get it. I sit with [general manager] Kenny Williams and we try to do stuff, and we get pounded like we don't try or don't care or do good for the fans or for us.

And I don't get it. I trust my players. I think they're good talent and will play hard for us.

And hopefully the result will be the right one. Because if we win this thing, Billy Martin, Earl Weaver, all those guys will be on diapers with what I'm going to say, because I'm going to rip a lot of people apart if we win this year, because enough is enough. What are we going to do to satisfy people?...

If people get mad at me and [think] I ruin this stuff for them, good. I want to ruin it for them. That's what people say. But in the meanwhile, it drives me crazy.

I tell my players every day, 'Give me some bullets to fight for you.' Everything I do in this town is to fight for my players. And everyone likes to hammer and hammer and hammer how [terrible] I am.

Oh, what the hell? I'll add a comment...
