This is Josh again. I’ll have a postgame wrap later, but here’s what Ozzie Guillen said after watching Sergio Mitre and Chad Gaudin one-hit his fading club:

“I’m embarrassed. I think that everyone in that locker room should be embarrassed. You have to start second-guessing yourself when you go out and have more errors than hits in a game. We have veteran players and I have respect for them and appreciate what they have done for me in the past, but this is Major League Baseball. We’re better than this. Right now it feels like we’re stealing money from Jerry (Reinsdorf). I’m stealing money from Jerry. The mountains only get higher every night.”

“I feel like I am the one that should be blamed. And I know that I am the one’s who’s going to get the blame, but you have to give me some ammunition. Give me something that I can use to defend you. Right now that’s not happening.”

On Jose Contreras: “Jose threw another bad game. It feels like we have been watching the same movie with him for three months now. And I love Jose, but he is pitching bad. But we had no choice other than to go to him today. I keep giving him chances and giving him the ball every fifth day, but he is not pitching well.”
