White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen released from contract

ESPNChicago.com is reporting that manager Ozzie Guillen has been released from his contract and will accept the Marlins managerial gig. Ozzie won 677 games for the White Sox, the third most of all-time among White Sox, and won a World Series in 2005.

"We certainly cannot thank Ozzie enough for all he has done during his eight seasons as manager of the Chicago White Sox, highlighted by an unforgettable 2005 World Series championship," chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said in a statement. "I personally appreciate everything he has done for this organization, our fans and the city of Chicago. We shared the greatest moments together and wish him nothing but future success in baseball and in life."

It has been reported that the White Sox will receive two minor leaguers from the Marlins in exchange for Guillen, but it has not been confirmed yet.
