Ozzie Guillen: Asians Treated Better Than Latinos In Baseball

CHICAGO — White Sox supervisor Ozzie Guillen thinks Asian gamers are given privileges in the US that Latinos usually are not afforded.In his newest rant, the outspoken Guillen additionally stated he is the “only one” in baseball instructing younger gamers from Latin America to keep away from performance-enhancing medication and that Main League Baseball would not care about that. He stated MLB solely cares about how usually he argues with umpires and what he says to the media.Guillen stated it is unfair that Japanese gamers are assigned translators once they come to the U.S. to play professional ball, however Latinos usually are not. “Very bad. I say, why do we have Japanese interpreters and we don’t have a Spanish one. I always say that. Why do they have that privilege and we don’t?” Guillen stated Sunday earlier than Chicago performed the Oakland Athletics. “Don’t take this wrong, but they take advantage of us. We bring a Japanese player and they are very good and they bring all these privileges to them. We bring a Dominican kid … go to the minor leagues, good luck. Good luck. And it’s always going to be like that. It’s never going to change. But that’s the way it is.” Guillen, who’s from Venezuela, stated when he went to see his son, Oney, in Class-A, the staff had a translator for a Korean prospect who “made more money than the players.” “And we had 17 Latinos and you know who the interpreter was? Oney. Why is that? Because we have Latino coaches? Because here he is? Why? I don’t have the answer,” Guillen stated. “We’re in the United States, we don’t have to bring any coaches that speak Spanish to help anybody. You choose to come to this country and you better speak English. “It is simply not the White Sox, it is baseball,” he added. “We now have a pitching coach that’s Latino, however the pitching coach cannot speak about hitting with a Latino man and that is the way in which it’s and now we have to beat all these (obstacles). You recognize why? As a result of we’re hungry, we develop up the best manner, we come right here to compete.” Guillen said young prospects in Latin America are being influenced to use performance-enhancing drugs.”It is any individual behind the scene getting cash out of these youngsters and telling them to take one thing they are not alleged to,” Guillen said. “For those who inform me, you’re taking this … you are going to be Vladimir Guerrero, you are going to be Miguel Cabrera, you are going to be this man … I am going to do it. As a result of I’ve seven brothers that sleep in the identical room. I’ve to maintain my mom, my dad. … Out of this I’ll make cash to make them higher.” Guillen said he’s trying to educate players from Latin America about steroids and other banned drugs. “I am the one one to show the Latinos about to not use,” he said. “I am the one one and Main League Baseball would not (care). All they care about – what number of instances I argue with the umpires, what I say to the media. However I am the one one in baseball to come back as much as the Latino youngsters and say to not use this and I do not get any credit score for that. “They have a look at you they usually say, ‘Good for you Ozzie,'” he said. “Ozzie stated it, don’t be concerned about it. If any individual else stated it they might be taking part in that (stuff) every single day on the jumbotron. … I am the one one which got here up with that concept. I did it for the Latino youngsters. … I need to assist these youngsters.” Main League Baseball spokesman Wealthy Levin disagreed with Guillen’s assertion. “We spend more time and effort educating our Latin players about PED use than we do our domestic players in the United States. We test extensively in the Dominican and Venezuelan leagues, and we’ve increased the testing every year,” Levin advised The Related Press. “We also have Sandy Alderson down in the Dominican Republic on a full-time basis and he’s dealing with a lot of these issues as well.” Guillen additionally stated gamers from Latin America are thought-about too outdated to signal in the event that they’re previous 16 or 17, but school prospects from the U.S. are sometimes signed at age 22 or 23.
