Cowley: Ozzie Has To Have The Last Word

In the recent weeks, Guillen has sounded off at his former organization, making it very clear that he was asked to leave two days before the end of the 2011 season. He’s taken great offense to reports that he quit on his former team.

Reinsdorf: Ozzie Did Not Quit On White Sox

The White Sox chairman says the colorful ex-manager intended to finish out the season in Chicago, but it made sense to let Guillen go to Florida, given changes afoot there.

Schuster: So Long Mark Buehrle

With all the rumors coming into the Winter Meetings concerning the Cubs & White Sox, who would have thought the biggest story for Chicago was someone leaving it. The Cubs still make a minor, and I emphasize a minor, deal before they leave town while the Sox are done here.
