Listen, I like Ozzie Guillen. I really do. We were two of the only people in Chicago with back-to-back Z's in our first name. But there comes a time in a dog's life when he must take a stand. Ozzie has crossed a line. And behalf of all dogs in this fine world, I've got to put him - and all dog owners, for that matter--in his place. Please, for the love of all that is sacred, don't kiss your dog with an open mouth like the Ozman did on the cover of ESPN The Magazine. First of all, it looks downright revolting.

Dale Sveum is out the door, Joe Girardi chose to stay in New York, and the Cubs are practically back to square one in their search for a new manager. The ultimate goal, one would think, is to pair a manager who develop and relate to players with the swarm of Cubs prospects who will be here in the near future. Currently the list of candidates for Cubs managers is at six. That list includes former Cub Dave Martinez, former Indians manager Manny Acta and San Diego assistant general manager A.J. Hinch.

Relax, White Sox fans, Robin Ventura isn't going anywhere anytime soon. "I plan on being here for two more years, unless they don't want me here for two more years," the Sox manager said matter-of-factly prior to Sunday's game. Unlike those of his predecessor Ozzie Guillen, Ventura's pregame media sessions are known more for being innocuous than controversial. However, Ventura raised eyebrows Saturday when asked if he could see himself managing the Sox for decades much like Walter Alston and Tommy Lasorda did with the Dodgers.

The Cubs have an unlikely ally in their corner when it comes to completing extensive renovations of Wrigley Field in the form of one of the ballpark's most vocal critics. "It's about time," said former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. "Finally they start doing the right thing. It's 2013. I think the new owners and the new GM and the new vice president of the ballclub are going in the right direction. " As one of the most vocal critics of Wrigley the past few decades, Guillen's reaction to the proposed renovations should come as a surprise to precisely nobody.

Welcome back to Chicago, Robin Ventura. That muffled voice in the distance you hear? That's just Ozzie Guillen. Don't worry, he's in Miami and can't cause you any real trouble. It's your first season as White Sox manager, and the bad news is it's difficult replacing the only guy who's helmed a World Series champion in Chicago since horses outnumbered cars. The good news is when the Sox traded the Fastest Mouth in the Midwest to the Marlins, they shipped out most of the expectations with him. It's tough to expect greatness from a team that drastically...

Let's get something out of the way real quick - sports, in the grand scheme of things, do not matter. They're a welcome diversion from life's trials and tribulations, sure. But while you might think your life would change forever if the Cubs were to win the World Series tomorrow, it wouldn't. You wouldn't suddenly be better-looking, better at your job or have fewer bills to pay. You'd simply be happy for a couple of days. Which brings us to the topic du jour of the sports world: Ozzie Guillen, a prominent figure in the world of sports (which - again - don't matter)

I'd like to thank the White Sox. You almost did it. You almost kept me occupied until Bears preseason in late July and August. You fell short by about a month or so … but hey, really nice effort, guys. Sorry, but losing two of three to the Cubs will not cut it. In a few years, when the Cubs are built, then you can lose two of three to them. Not here. Not now. Is there someone in Chicago, Charlotte, Birmingham, Winston-Salem, Kannapolis or Great Falls who can play third base?

"What did you say?" As soon as I heard the question, I knew there would be trouble. The Vin Diesel-bodied dude turned around and looked at my friend and me, even though only one of us had been talking. Clearly bigger than either of us, he stood up on the bus and repeated the question. I knew my answer was critical to my safety and that there was no Bud Selig-type to discipline this guy. Fast-forwarding this tale for the sake of column space, my gift of gab narrowly saved our asses from getting an old-fashioned beatdown.

If a certain Bucktown resident seems a lot more relaxed these days than he did when he was managing the White Sox, that's because, well, he is. "I really like living a regular person life," Ozzie Guillen told RedEye in an exclusive interview Wednesday. "So far it's been pretty good. " RedEye caught up with the only man in the past 90-some years to lead a Chicago baseball team to a World Series championship before an event benefiting his eponymous Ozzie Guillen Foundation at River North hot spot The Grid.

Even Jake Peavy's softspoken Southern drawl can't hide his excitement about the White Sox this season. After two injury-plagued, underachieving years marred by tension between himself and former manager Ozzie Guillen, the right-hander has regained his All-Star form. With the help of their ace's turnaround, the Sox are in first place in the American League Central Division with 34 games left in the regular season. And while Peavy has been schooling hitters, last week he helped kids prepare for the school year.

Since winning the 2005 World Series, the White Sox have been burned often. While they've been fearless in making high-profile moves, many of them - Manny Ramirez, Andruw Jones, Adam Dunn,Ken Griffey Jr. - haven't panned out. So after a disappointing 2011, the Sox cooled off this winter. In other words, they embraced rebuilding. First they traded combustible manager Ozzie Guillen to Miami. Next they allowed Mark Buehrle, their top pitcher and one of their most popular players, to exit via free agency.
