I enjoy confused old-guy Lou:
Unlike Kenny Williams on the other side of town, Jim Hendry doesn't have anything to worry about when it comes to his manager and Twitter.
``What is Twitter?'' Cubs manager Lou Piniella said today when told of the Ozzie Guillen-Twitter account uproar in White Sox camp.
When the short-message, public-text concept was explained to him, Piniella said, ``Ozzie needs more space than that.''
While Piniella says he's heard of Facebook, and even used the Facebook function on his phone - once. But Twitter?
``No, no, no, no, no,'' he said. ``First of all I don't know how to Twitter, and second of all I'm not going to learn how to Twitter.
``I'm really not a Facebook or Twitter guy. I'm a prime rib and baked potato.''
He's missing all kinds of good stuff. Not to mention Carlos Zambrano demanding Paul Sullivan Tweet pictures of him.

Alas, Ozzie Guillen is going to be a no-baseball and no-White Sox zone, thanks to Kenny Williams:
According to Guillen, after 12 tweets, the South Side skipper had amassed 7,000 followers. Before the media met with Guillen, he had a meeting with general manager Kenny Williams and Guillen made it clear that anything he says will not be about White Sox business or White Sox players.
“I wanted to do something off the field to have fun,” he said. “All of a sudden, people are making a big deal about this thing. It’s about Ozzie Guillen. It’s not about MLB or the White Sox organization. It has nothing to do with the organization, nothing to do with baseball.”
So what is he Tweeting about? About the same as your typical Twitter feed, unfortunately: He's bored at work. He's tired. Letting us know he's going to bed.
And then there's this one from yesterday, which may have led Williams to lay down the law:
going to eat in half hour why dye no have a job ?
No, not that he's going to eat in half an hour. But that he's wondering why Jermaine Dye isn't working.
Well, in part because your boss (the aforementioned Mr. Williams) didn't re-sign him?
