Guillen’s Son Slams Jenks For Comments

CHICAGO (CBS) — Ozzie Guillen’s son, Oney, slammed former White Sox player Bobby Jenks on Twitter Tuesday night, after the Boston Red Sox pitcher criticized the way the White Sox let him go.

Oney Guillen called Jenks a “yellow beard-dipping idiot,” among other insults in more than a dozen tweets.

“hahah memo to bobby jenks get a clue u drink to (sic) much and u have had marital problems hugeee (sic) ones and the sox stood behind u,” he wrote in another tweet.

“i thought u were a man not some punk who runs away and talks bulls**t. u coward. say it to there face when u were with them,” Oney Guillen wrote in another.

Oney Guillen also alleges Jenks punched a “clubby” in the face when he “couldn’t handle” his drinking.

The comments stem from remarks Jenks made to Scott Merkin, of, about wanting to stay in Chicago.

“It was my first hope, and it hurt,” Jenks told Merkin. “During my first conversation with my wife after the season, she looked me in the eyes and said that she would go anywhere with me. I said that I wanted to go back to Chicago.”

“I don’t want to sit here and say I’m a 15-year veteran, but I felt I was a significant part of this organization and this team. With the moves that happened and the way things rolled out, it made more sense by their actions to look elsewhere.”

The White Sox had one of the most active offseasons of any team in the league. The signings of Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko indicated that the team was focused on winning. But the Dunn signing also indicated something else to Jenks.

“Once they signed Adam Dunn and gave him my number, I knew it was official,” Jenks said. “With that move right there, even though they talked to me after [Paul] Konerko and Dunn signed, it was almost like an afterthought, I felt. They never made it seem like they wanted to bring me back.”

    Oney needs to get a real job in the real world. Being a hanger on to daddy all of your life isn’t a valuable use of the oxygen you are using. Your dad is a below average manager, you need to get a life. Bobby Jenks brought us a World Series title; so far, Oney (and for that matter the rest of your siblings) have contributed nothing to society.

    Differing opinion. I don’t like Bobby Junk, err Jenks. I’m excited he’s in a Sox uniform, just not the White Sox. Ozzie is okay, neither great nor inferior. I would have been alright, if he went elsewhere over the off season. But he’s here, and this is the hand we are dealt. Oney needs to get a life, get a job. Leave the Sox alone. Back to Bobby Jenks, he is not the dominant closer anymore. Set up man at best. Obviously, he has issues outside of baseball, that contributes to his poor performance this past season and in ’09.

  • Clark W. Griswold

    Onery has been fed from a silver spoon his whole life and has accomplished nothing except for riding big bad daddy’s coat tails. This is just another example of him subconsciously acting out for being a failure in Oswaldo’s eyes.

    Stay classy Onery

  • Denver Smeghead

    Lots of irony here in Oney calling people cowards and stuff. Silly little hypocrite.

  • Jim

    Has Oney Guillen done anything else but complain about or inject his 2 cents in White Sox business? Obviously oblivious to how this looks for the old man, like his honesty but c’mon man, i thought some things were supposed to be kept in house. Whatever happened to, what is said and happens in a club house stays in the club house! Funny thing about these Guillen men they don’t know how to keep their traps shut! I

    this… was… AWESOME! I’ve wanted Bobby gone since 2008, and oney just torched him! thank you for exposing him oney, alot of people may not like you, but you earned my respect. Bobby sucks!!!

    • Spoon

      Yah, he torched something alright… too bad most of the fire he lit is gonna burn nothing other than himself and the Sox organization. Everything he said, minus being an eyewitness to an assault that was covered up by his employer, was pretty well known.

  • judy birdy

    I didn’t like when they had Jenk pitching because if he didn’t have the bottom of the batting order he was in trouble.

  • Spoon

    Nothing like telling someone to be a man and ‘say it to his face’ like Twitter… what a scrub.

  • Matthew Bright

    What Oney did drops jenks’ value as a player, what’s to say that the BoSox don’t try and bounce him out of Boston. He doesn’t understand the magnitude of what he may have done with this person’s life.

  • Clark W. Griswold

    Obviously Jon Montgomery has the same intelligence level as Onery

    • Jon, Montgomery

      would you care to clarify that? no? well then shut up, thank you and have a nice day.

    oney guillen is on 670am right now, 2:45pm

    Oney Guillen is a nobody riding on daddy’s coat tails. It’s sad that Ozzie does not put a stop to it since his job may be on the line because of it (as stated by Ozzie himself on “The Club” t.v. show). Oney is very immature. I am so tired of Ozzie’s family issues being brought to the team, I would not mind if Reinsdorf got rid of him because of it, but hope this all just goes away and we can watch Ozzie coach the team. As for Bobby Jenks, he gave us his best pitching year. REPSPECT THAT. I think the change of scenery will be good for him and the BoSox fans will love him. Good Luck Bobby. Oney, grow up or go away please. The White Sox Organization and the fans don’t want to hear your assinine remarks about the Sox and it’s players. Go White Sox!
