Ozzie Guillen was ejected from today’s Grapefruit action for arguing a call. Hey, it’s Spring Training for fiery managers, too, you know. But that’s not where this story ends. Apparently, after Guillen was headed for the showers, the opposing manager, who just happened to be Bobby Valentine, provided Guillen with sort of a ‘you’re dismissed’ wave while saying “see ya.”
When Guillen heard about Valentine’s sarcastic parting gesture, he said Valentine can go love himself uncomfortably [via WEEI]:
Guillen did not see or hear Valentine’s remarks, but asked how he would have reacted, Guillen made his feelings clear.
“I don’t see it. I would have told him to go and [expletive] himself, too,” said Guillen, with a laugh. “That’s the way Ozzie Guillen is.”
Too? Does that mean that’s what he told the umpire to do as well or is that how he interprets what Valentine did to mean? Either way, classic Ozzie Guillen.
