Oney Guillen excited dad to coach Big Z

Oney Guillen has put the chances Carlos Zambrano succeeds with the Marlins at 100 percent. Why's he that confident in his prediction? Because he thinks his dad can control the embattled former Cubs pitcher.

Oney GuillenI bet 100 percent that zambrano doesn't explode like he did with Lou P. Or Quade

This is hardly a bold assertion -- it's been long-speculated that the only man in baseball who could truly keep Zambrano in line is Ozzie Guillen. That's why Zambrano was linked to the White Sox in previous years, with some going so far as to suggest the Cubs and Sox swap Zambrano for Jake Peavy (in short: that'd never happen).

But this next tweet from Oney, though, is a bit massaged:

Oney GuillenHis manager now is Ozzie Guillen. Different animal. He can control ANYBODY

Anybody? I guess we're just glossing over the whole Nick Swisher debacle, then. Or Brandon McCarthy and Brian Anderson, two guys Ozzie reportedly didn't care for. When Ozzie doesn't like a player, generally, that player gets shipped out of town.

Also, even without a blowup, Zambrano's skillset has been in decline for the past few years, and if his fastball continues to lose velocity he'll struggle regardless of how good an attitude he has.
