“People out there are nasty. Nasty. I don’t need that. I don’t need the aggravation. So many nasty people that don’t have nothing better to do. I’m not Kim Kardashian.”

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen quits Twitter: ‘Don’t follow me anymore’

"Yeah, I hate Twitter," Guillen said in the Marlins’ dugout before the game. "Everybody following me can (expletive) his pants. You can quote me on that one. … Don’t follow me anymore. Twitter is a stupid thing. I never make money out of that. When you speak Spanish, you speak Spanish. When you speak English, you don’t know how to spell ‘English.’ Get a real job, get a life. I don’t make money out of that. I’m done."

Ozzie Guillen: What I've Learned →


Among the gems:

“You have success, you can talk all the shit you want.

My mother is a high school principal. My brother is an engineer. One of my little sisters is a doctor. Another is a teacher. When you come from that kind of family and only get to eighth grade, it’s kind of weird and awkward. But I make more money.

We had this media guy, Padilla. He was eating a cheeseburger during the game. I saw him while I was managing. I grabbed the phone, called the PR department, and said, “Doug, you’re gonna choke on that fucking cheeseburger.” Then I hung up. People wonder, How the fuck did you see him? But I see everything.

What attracted me to my wife is she’s hot. She’s also nice, she’s a great mom — but that comes after she’s hot.

I tell my kids to be careful who they have sex with. Pick the right woman, because that kid is going to be a Guillen for the rest of his life.

A lot of people think I dye my hair. No, I don’t give a fuck. I just worry that my kids live as long as they can. I hope I die before they do. I want to show my friends that they are my friends. I want my wife to know I think she’s hot. I want my team to win games. That’s all.”
