The Chicago White Sox were about to get the series finale started with the Los Angeles Angels on Monday afternoon when Ozzie Guillen made one little comment that would make any White Sox fan laugh. Right before the game started, Ozzie didn’t seem too happy that he has to go to Wrigley Field.
Yes, Ozzie, the White Sox are visiting the Chicago Cubs this week. They play two games at Wrigley Field on Tuesday and Wednesday. It is the first half of a four-game season Crosstown Classic. Ozzie seems none too thrilled about making the trip to the friendly confines.
Of course, he is a White Sox lifer. He is never going to appreciate Wrigley Field as one of the oldest and most historic ballparks in the country. All he sees is the home of the team that he was trained to hate.
White Sox fans are going to love seeing this reaction from him saying:
"“Oh we gotta go to Wrigley Field? Oh my god”"
Ozzie Guillen is not thrilled about visiting Wrigley Field this week for games.
It was a short little 11-second comment that is just comedy gold. He is half kidding but that is a sign that the pregame show with Chuck Garfien and Ozzie Guillen will be live from Wrigley Field for the two games instead of being in the studio.
We can only hope that the White Sox do what they need to do against a much weaker team in this one. Both teams are 9-13 but you should know the difference between the White Sox and the Cubs right now.
The White Sox will throw Michael Kopech against the Cubs starter Drew Smyly. It is a matchup that favors the White Sox as Kopech is off to a tremendous start and the White Sox dominates left-handed pitching traditionally.
Anything can happen but the White Sox really need this win. This is the type of rivalry series that can get the players going which could swing their season in the right direction. Expect a big performance from some of the star players on this team.
Even though the White Sox have had a tough start and the Cubs are just not a good team right now, this series is going to be fun for lots of people in town. This is a chance for each team to show what they’re made of and build on the intercity rivalry. Hopefully, everybody including Ozzie Guillen is able to have some good wholesome fun.
