On Wednesday, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was ejected by plate umpire Todd Tichenor at Yankee Stadium for arguing balls and strikes. After the ejection, Ozzie let the world know he wasn't happy via these two tweets:

Anyway, today MLB fined Ozzie and suspended him for two games for "his actions on the field" and the tweets, which were "Major League Baseball’s social media policy and other regulations regarding the use of electronic equipment during the course of a game", according to a White Sox press release.

Ozzie will serve his suspension tonight and tomorrow night while the Sox take on the Baltimore Orioles. Will he tweet during those games? Only time will tell.
