Ozzie Guillen Suspended: White Sox Legend Frank Thomas Impressed By Guillen Apology

The former Chicago White Sox manager, Ozzie Guillen, issued a public apology on Tuesday following his controversial comments lauding the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Guillen's apology was received well by at least one of his former players as shortly after the press conference, former White Sox DH Frank Thomas shared his thoughts, noting that Guillen appeared particularly genuine in his regret:

Thomas played 19 years in the MLB, including 16 seasons with the Chicago White Sox. Guillen managed Thomas from 2004 through 2008, including the 2005 World Championship season which Thomas missed most of due to injury.
