It's bad enough that the Sox turned him down and missed out on his productive 2010 season, but we also in the process handed his bat over to the Twins and he helped them beat us to the division title.
The worst part of all of it was how they strung him along the weekend of Soxfest, hinting at the media that they were seriously entertaining the thought of bringing him back, to put on a nice face for the fans, and then turned and gave him the cold shoulder immediately afterwards.
This was also about the same time Ozzie and his kids turned the Sox into the "Ozzie Guillen Show." Great memories
