This means you Josh Fields

Chicago+White+Sox+Photo+Day+-Hdfeh3O4qEl.jpgCLEVELAND - Ozzie Guillen has no problem throwing his players under the bus.
The latest victim with tire tracks on his back from the White Sox manager?
Third baseman Josh Fields.
Following the loss to Cleveland on Wednesday, Guillen pointed out that, "We strike out too much. Too much strikeouts. Game on the line, we strike out. People on base, we strike out. Lead off inning, we strike out. We got to cut that. That's a big part of the game. You put the ball in play, you got a better chance. We really strike out too much.
"Even the guys who strike out ... We got people who strike out more than Jimmy [Thome]. That's a little embarrassing, you strike out more than Jim Thome, because Jim has one way. He's not going to be on base 300 times, 150 strikeouts, 150 walks. He's going to be a Hall of Famer. Some guys aren't going to be Hall of Famers. They strike out too much and they have to be better.''
Thome has 33 strikeouts, while Fields has 39.
