A lot of the media stuff our guys did months ago during the offseason is showing up now. Stories on Ozzie Guillen are set to appear in Playboy, Men’s Health and GQ Magazine. This issue of The Sporting News shows Ozzie, as head chef, stirring the ingredients for another AL pennant. TSN picks the Sox to win the Central, beat the Red Sox in the ALDS, beat the Yankees in the ALCS and then beat the Cardinals in the World Series. October seems a long way away right now.
