Ozzie is our archnemesis

Posted at 9:42 AM on July 6, 2005 by Ben Tesch (6 Comments)

ESPN's David Schoenfield chronicles each baseball team's Public Enemy No. 1, which could be a rival player, opposing manager, or team executive. The Twins archnemesis? Ozzie Guillen.

Since those of us in the world of mass media tend to ignore anything that goes on in the Upper Mississippi Region, unless it involves Randy Moss fake-mooning Packers fans, you may have missed the brewing rivalry between the Twins and White Sox. As the leader of the Sox, for Twins fans Ozzie isn't just an amusing quote machine who plays a fun brand of ball, but an insipid, dirty manager who can take his Ozzieball crap and go rot with the rest of the rats who live in the upper levels of U.S. Cellular Field.

There are actually quite a few former Twins on other teams hitlists. Christian Guzman's poor play is killing the Nationals, Eric Milton got a nice jab for his play with the Reds, and of course, there's the Atlanta Braves public enemy no. 1: Kent Hrbek. (That fat pig pulled Gant off first base!)
