White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen – who made headlines this week when he threw the word “fag” at Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti over one of his articles – was handed two separate punishments yesterday for his bad behavior. The lesser of the two: a one game suspension (which he served last night) and undisclosed fine for the “internal actions” of relief pitcher David Riske, who pegged St. Louis’ Chris Duncan in Tuesday’s game after both teams received warnings. And as for throwing around prejudicial slurs?
He’s being fined and ordered to attend sensitivity training, ordered up by MLB commissioner Bud Selig. Guillen’s reaction? He’s fine with the punishment. Oh, and:
I don’t regret what I say about Jay. I regret what I say about the [gay] community.
