CHICAGO – One of Ozzie Guillen’s sons is firing back at former White Sox closer Bobby Jenks for comments made about the Chicago manager.

Jenks, who signed a two-year deal with Boston last week, expressed disappointment to MLB.com that the White Sox decided not to re-sign him. He told the website he was “looking forward to playing for a manager who knows how to run a bullpen.”

Oney Guillen called Jenks a “punk” in a series of Twitter posts.

In one, he wrote that Jenks should “be a man and tell the manager or the coaching staff how u feel or the organization when u were with the sox not when u leave.” In another, he wrote that Jenks “cried in the managers office (because) u have problems now u go and talk bad about the sox after they protected u for 7 years ungrateful.”
