|Guillen Surprised by $7,000 Fine in Balk Flap
|ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen expected a fine from Major League Baseball. He says the $7,000 amount came as a surprise.
Guillen, pitcher Mark Buehrle and umpire Joe West all were fined in the wake of a recent balk flap in Cleveland.
Guillen says he knew he'd be fined. He joked that he'll need to get a loan to pay it.
The fines were imposed Friday, and Guillen was away from the White Sox while attending his son's high school graduation. Guillen rejoined the team for Saturday night's game at Tampa Bay.
