Ozzie Guillen Goes on Profanity-Laced Tirade Against Nationals Teen Phenom Bryce Harper
Guillen claimed that in Harper's first at-bat, the player had pine tar too far up on his bat, so on his second at-bat, he came out with a new bat and a big smile. Harper even pointed his new bat at Guillen, and that set the manager off. He grabbed a bat, began mimicking Harper, and even pointed the bat at him.
|via @James_BondmanGuillen's outrage came with a string of curse words directed at Harper.|
"I could have said a lot of [stuff] about this kid," he continued. "I've been praising this kid like every day. The last three times they asked me about him, the only thing I said was he's a great player. What he did [today] was unprofessional. I'm not going to tell you guys what he did because I'm not going to be talking about it on ESPN, Baseball Tonight, what happened again. I'll just leave it like that. I'll talk to his manager in a little while."
Asked about his side of the story, Harper brushed it off and just called Guillen a "great manager."
