Chicago White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen's son, Ozney, was drafted in the 22nd round by the team earlier this week so you'd think there would be some warm feelings between the manager and the team.
Instead, the draft result ended up leading to a "heated shouting match" between Guillen and general manager Ken Williams in which the pair "almost came to blows," according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
The pair have had some unpleasant conversations in the past as well. So much so that team owner Jerry Reinsdorf has asked Williams to not travel with the team, the Sun-Times reported.
According to the paper, Williams confronted Guillen after hearing that the manager had made the following comment after his son was selected: ''I give my kid 50 grand just to go to school [at the University of South Florida rather than sign with the Sox]. I got 50 grand in my pocket to send my kid to go to Niketown or buy something.''
Williams sounded ready to end the professional relationship with Guillen when he was asked about it: ''Whether or not the maintenance of that relationship is such that we still have the drive to get through some things and still have the drive to get through some differences ... I'm still in that assessment mode for myself, in particular," he told the paper.
