CLEVELAND – Manager Ozzie Guillen has heard all the cries from White Sox fans who want Dayan Viciedo on the roster immediately.
With Saturday’s rained out game against the Indians expected to be moved to September as part of a day-night doubleheader, Guillen was asked in jest if that means Viciedo will be there to help the cause.
“Well if Viciedo is going to be the White Sox’s savior we will be in deep [expletive] … and you can quote me on that,” Guillen said. “If we wait for [expletive] Viciedo to be the savior, we’re in deep [expletive] if we wait for a Triple-A kid to come here and be the savior."
The Cuban has cooled off a bit at Triple-A Charlotte, but is still batting .307 with 16 home runs and 64 RBIs heading into play Saturday.
“Can he help? Yes,” Guillen said. “Is he going to be the savior? I like the talent we have here.”
Guillen makes it clear: He's not waiting on pins and needles for Viciedo to arrive.
