There were two meltdowns at U-S Cellular Field tonight. The first one came during the game. After watching Freddy Garcia give up two singles in the seventh trying to protect a 5-3 lead, Ozzie Guillen came to the mound, and chose to keep his starter in the game.
Garcia gave up another single to Adam Everett. Then came another to Curtis Granderson.
Ozzie finally pulled him for Tony Pena but the misery continued.
There was a single by Placido Polanco. A single by Magglio Ordonez. The Tigers had five straight hits, and scored four runs in the inning. Scott Linebrink came on in the eighth and gave up four more. When all was said and done, the Tigers scored TWELVE unanswered runs, and won the game, 12-5.
Afterwards, Guillen unloaded on his team. What set him off? Football. Yes, football.

The Chicago Bears will reunite with former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio in Denver this summer, as word broke Monday that the Broncos will host the Bears for joint training camp practices in advance of their preseason game in August.
The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs confirmed the news on Twitter.
This is the second time Denver will welcome the Bears for training camp sessions. The two teams held joint practices back in 2018.
Training camp won't be the first time the Bears will see Fangio since his departure last offseason. Chicago pulled off a last-second victory over the Broncos in Week 2 of the 2019 season when kicker Eddy Pineiro booted a 53-yard game-winner with time expiring in the fourth quarter. His kick was set up by the clutch version of Mitch Trubisky, who connected on a 25-yard pass to Allen Robinson on the play before Pineiro's conversion.
Fangio left a lasting impact during his time as the Bears defensive coordinator that reached its peak in 2018 when Chicago was widely regarded as the most ferocious defense in the league. The Bears finished third in yards allowed per game and ended the season with the top run defense. Their 27 interceptions were tops in the NFL, too.
