The latest from the crazy person managing the White Sox
According to the Chicago Tribune, Ozzie Guillen intends to give his third base Gold Glove vote to Tony Batista. The Batista Bashers of this site should absolutely love his reasoning:
"I'm going to vote for the worst guy on the field so my guy is one vote ahead. That's the way people should do it. I will do that. I will vote for [Batista]. I will vote for him so Chavez doesn't get his. That's the way."
You read that right - in order to improve Joe Crede's chance of beating out Eric Chavez for the Gold Glove at third base, Guillen is going to vote for Tony Batista, since managers can't vote for their own players and Batista was (by Guillen's estimation) the worst third baseman in the league. Guillen is also considering voting for Alex Rodriguez, who leads AL third basemen in errors.
I thought this was kind of a bush league move, until I saw elsewhere in the article that Ken Macha is leaving his ballot empty at third base, to improve Chavez's chances. Ozzie is just doing the same thing, only funnier.
