More Twitter Trouble From Oney Guillen

CHICAGO (WSCR) The Chicago White Sox didn’t anticipate much drama coming from their choice with the 47th overall draft pick. But shortly after selecting Keenyn Walker from Central Arizona College, that’s exactly what they got.

Oney Guillen, son of White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen took to his Twitter page saying: “Shocker white sox pick another good athlete black kid. How about picking a good baseball player”!/Oneyguillen/status/77929049942528000

Walker, a switch hitting outfielder, was described by White Sox Director of Amateur Scouting Doug Laumann as “a highly athletic kid with plus-plus speed. He is a scout’s dream. Keenyn did everything I needed to see from a scouting and performance standpoint – speed, hitting and defense. He’s a top-of-the-order, leadoff-type guy with pop, and he’s a plus defensive center fielder.”

As expected, Oney received plenty of backlash immediately following his message, but he insisted that the comments were not racially driven.

“People relax my comment has nothing to do with color just statting the obvious u guys overeact to everything lord,” he said via Twitter.!/Oneyguillen/status/77937044743139328

This isn’t the first time that Oney has created a stir with his comments on Twitter. In December, after former White Sox closer Bobby Jenks criticized the way the organization let him go, Oney called Jenks a “yellow beard-dipping idiot,” among other insults in more than a dozen tweets.

    I can’t wait for the day Oney finally wins himself a Darwin Award.

    The real problem here is that stories are written for this guy. Why does it matter what he says/thinks/does. There is nothing good to take from this story, it isn’t news of a dire event everyone needs to be mindful of. Its a whiny brat who’s living off his surnames celebrity, thats it. If Ozzie were saying these things, and given his very public position, then yes it is very news worthy. This is like writing a few paragraphs about me passing gas. We all know it happens, but nobody wants to hear about, and god forbid they are close to the situation!
