Ozzie's Got A Brand New Blog

Sure, he brought our city its only World Series in our, and even out grandparents', lifetimes. But White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is perhaps more well known for his way with words. Doesn't matter whether spoken in interviews or tweeted, Ozzie's got a way for drawing attention to what he says. So it's only fitting that Ozzie gets a new platform for speaking his mind.

The White Sox skipper unveiled his new blog over the weekend, on the MLBlogs Network. Ozzie Speaks (Ozzie Habla en Espanol) is part of MLB's official blog network (Official Affiliate, Unofficial Opinions). Follow Saturday's basic first post, he welcomed his fans to his new blog with an extended post on Sunday, explaining, "I wanted to get this blog up and running to serve as an easier way to connect with you fans, in English and Spanish." Ozzie uses the rest of the post to promote his work for Fox covering the World Series and his thoughts about the team and players playing in the Fall Classic. Nothing controversial yet -- unless you've got a thing got Juan Uribe.

Sox management has yet to weigh in about how they feel about Guillen's new blog. We can't imagine Kenny Williams is any more thrilled for this than he was when Guillen jumped on Twitter a few months ago.
