Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen called New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez a hypocrite for his waffling on which team he would play for at the World Baseball Classic in early March, Sports Illustrated reported.
"Alex was kissing Latino people's asses," Guillen said in reference to Rodriguez's indecision about whether to play for the Dominican Republic or the United States in the WBC. "He knew he wasn't going to play for the Dominicans; he's not a Dominican!"
Guillen is a native of Venezuela but recently became a United States citizen.
Rodriguez is a duel citizen of both the Dominican Republic and United States, and ultimately chose to play for the U.S.
"I hate hypocrites: He's full of [expletive]," Guillen told Sports Illustrated. "The Dominican team doesn't need his ass. It's the same with [Nomar] Garciaparra playing for Mexico. Garciaparra only knows Cancun because he went to visit."
