Great series win versus the Cubs

What’s going on, everyone? Hope everyone enjoyed that series win versus the Cubs. It was a great series, like they always seem to be, and despite their record, I still feel like they have a very good ballclub over there. It’s good for us to win series; we need to continue to do that and get back to .500, then we can worry about other things. Even though we are playing on opposite sides of town, it was good for me to see Carlos Zambrano pitch well. No matter what, you always want your friends to do well in this game. As for us, our bullpen was outstanding once again, and we got just enough hitting to take the series. I enjoyed my day off yesterday morning with a little golf with my kids, and I’m looking forward to the Nationals coming to town. They are hot right now, so it should be a good series.

Before I answer some questions like I promised to do in my last post, I want to remind everyone that space is running out for my kids summer baseball camp taking place during the All-Star Break. You can sign up now at any of the four Chicagoland locations, and I can promise that all the kids will have a great time. You can sign up here, too.

Now, on to your questions …

Q: Do you still think the Twins will be a contender in the AL Central this season? — Mike K. (Waseca, Minn.)

A: Yes, I do. Those guys know how to play baseball, so no matter how many games they are behind us, they are just as dangerous as anybody else. And as you can tell by the way they are playing, they are going to be right there at the end of it.

Q Ozzie, who was better at the hot corner — Joe Crede or Robin Ventura? – Brandon B. (Chicago)

A: I say Robin because he won many more Gold Gloves and lasted longer than Joe did. But don’t get me wrong, when Joe was healthy, he was very good over there.

Q: How important is it that your players do something to give back to the community? — Pat C. (Naperville, Ill.)

A: I think that’s the main goal other than winning games. That’s what the Chicago White Sox and Mr. Jerry Reinsdorf are all about. They put an emphasis on helping the community, and they do a great job of it.

Q: If the world were ending tomorrow, what would you do tonight? — Tyler G. (Greenville, N.C.)

A: I would have dinner with my kids and spend the night with my wife. A few drinks might be involved somewhere in there. (hehe)

Q: Do you ever worry about losing your job? — Matt B. (Oak Lawn, Ill.)

A: Never, because I have no control over that. I have been on the hot seat since 2004.

You keep sending the questions, and I will keep answering them!!!

Your questions — and your chance to win!

What’s up, everyone!? I’m just about ready to leave the sunshine of Venezuela and head back to the cold and snow of Chicago. Next weekend, I will be in town for SoxFest and also have a special event planned that I am sure some of you have heard about — my Celebrity Roast. 670 The Score has decided to put together a Celebrity Roast of me, and from what I have heard, I better make sure I am ready for this! I am very grateful that partial proceeds for the event are going to the Ozzie Guillen Foundation, and they told me the event sold out in less than four days. I want to thank everyone for their support! Now, if you have been paying attention to my Twitter or Facebook, you know I still have a couple of tickets left to give away for the Roast. I think we came up with a pretty good idea to make you earn them… 
But, first, your questions…
Q: What can I do to make a donation to the Ozzie Guillen Foundation? 
A: As we speak, the Foundation is being brought over to the States. I will keep you guys posted as to how to help out as soon as I can. 
Q: Do you prefer using the hit-and-run early or late in games; are there certain counts you like using it more than others? 
A: To be honest, it really depends on who is hitting and a bunch of other factors. Generally speaking, the game will dictate when and where I use it. 
Q: Do you think Brent Morel will have a long future with the Sox considering how well he played at the end of last year? 
A: The first time I saw Brent Morel was in Kannapolis, N.C.; he was roommates with my son, Oney. Oney told me how good this kid was, and when I first saw him, I thought, “Wow, this kid has good hands.” He really reminded me of Joe Crede with less power. 
Q: Because of your Roast, will you be at SoxFest on Friday, Jan. 21? 
A: I will be at SoxFest on Friday. The Roast is a little later, so I will be at both. 
Q: If you had the option to Roast anyone, who would it be? 
A: I am not sure who I would Roast — maybe a lot of people! (haha) I would just hope people would be able to understand me. 
OK, now, back to what everyone wants to know. I have two pairs of tickets to give away, and there are only two rules: You have to be at least 21 years old, and you must be able to make it to the event in Elk Grove, Ill., on Jan. 21. 
Here’s how you win… 
I want you, in exactly 13 words, to tell me why you deserve the tickets to my Roast. Don’t be shy, either. I want something creative, and remember, anything goes! You can submit your answer to this e-mail: info@TripleCrownMktg.com. I will personally select the two that I think earned their spot at my Roast. 
Submissions will be accepted now through Monday, Jan. 17. Good luck!
– Ozzie
