|Team Says Guillen's Views Are "Incorrect"
|CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox say they disagree with manager Ozzie Guillen's assertion that Asian players are given privileges in the United States that Latinos are not afforded.
The team released a statement saying it believes Guillen's views are "incorrect," and pointed to "a number of programs" to help all foreign players adapt to playing baseball in the U.S.
In his latest rant, the outspoken Guillen also said Sunday he's the "only one" in baseball teaching young players from Latin America to stay away from performance-enhancing drugs and that Major League Baseball doesn't care about the issue.
In Monday's statement, the White Sox say they offer Spanish language presentations about the risks of performance-enhancing drugs.
