NEW YORK (AP) -White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was fined by Major League Baseball on Friday for accusing umpire Phil Cuzzi of having a vendetta against him.
Cuzzi ejected Guillen in the third inning of Chicago's home opener against Minnesota on Monday after he popped out of the dugout following a strike call against Paul Konerko. It was his 13th ejection since the White Sox hired him as their manager in 2004.
``I don't like that guy behind the plate,'' Guillen said before Wednesday's game against the Twins. ``Every time he's behind the plate, we might have a problem.''
Guillen also was ejected by Cuzzi on July 31, 2007, in New York.
``As soon as I know that he's going to be behind the plate, I know I'm going to be ejected,'' Guillen said. ``You can have my bench coach handle this game because I know I'm going to be ejected.''
