Ozzie Guillén hates Nick Swisher, with his whole heart

Ozzie Guillén hates Nick Swisher, with his whole heart

If you didn't know, Ozzie Guillén has strong opinions and that includes former players he dealt with.

On the White Sox post-game show, host Chuck Garfien asked Guillén who he disliked more, Carlos Gomez or Nick Swisher.

"Oh my God, nobody can compare that with Nick Swisher," Guillén responded. "I hate Nick Swisher with my heart."

Guillén declined to elaborate, but then added: "I think he hates me back, there's nothing wrong with that."

And finally Ozzie gave some kind of reason.

"I never talked to him, I was managing him, but I don't like the way his attitude was all fake. And I don't like fake people."

Then Chuck pointed out Swisher was only with the White Sox for one year and Guillén had thoughts about that to.

"It was one year too long," Guillén said.

Guillén doubled down and said he thinks others players would agree if they were honest, while clarifying he didn't hate him as a person and thought he was a good player.

The White Sox way wasn't the Swisher way, and there was friction.

Ozzie also admitted he might of misused Swisher.

"I played him center field and batting first or second, that guy has to be in right field batting tenth."

Blackhawks using Oilers' locker room in NHL bubble looks WEIRD

Blackhawks using Oilers' locker room in NHL bubble looks WEIRD

This looks straight out of bizzaro world.

The Chicago Blackhawks are set to play the Edmonton Oilers in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifying Round, and are using the Oilers' locker room.

It's created an odd, bizarre photo op that feels all sorts of wrong.

The unusual sight is a result of the NHL bubble as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

After halting the season, the NHL resumed the season in two bubble cities. For the NHL teams in the Western Conference, that city is Edmonton.

It just so happens that the 12th-seeded Blackhawks are playing the fifth-seeded Oilers in their Stanley Cup Qualifying Round match up. And as the designated home team for Game 3, the Blackhawks get to use the home locker room, the Oilers' locker room.

Still, it's a weird sight to see. But it won't be as weird as the photos of the Blackhawks celebrating eliminating the Oilers in their locker room on Friday.
