CHICAGO -- Ozzie Guillen has a great deal of respect for the Twins and considers Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire one of his closest friends in the game. But Guillen had to laugh when asked Wednesday if he felt any sympathy for Gardenhire and the Twins' 2011 plight.
"No, I just told him last night, 'How you feel now? Yeah, put yourself in my spot now. How's that feel?'" said a smiling Guillen. "No, because when we lose, they don't feel bad for me.
"I told him last night, 'It's your turn.' The way they do stuff out there, it's kind of like wow, obviously, they have a hospital over there all year long. You can't win with most of your players hurt. It's hard to do."
"But do I feel bad for him?" Guillen said. "No, because I've seen him celebrating a lot with a lot of champagne over his body when I've watched him [over the years]. Get them next year, Gardy."
