FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was ejected from Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox, evidently for telling the first base umpire that a fair/foul call was not yet in his jurisdiction because the ball remained in front of the bag.
"It was lesson time," said Sox manager Bobby Valentine. "Ozzie was telling the first base umpire it wasn't his call, because the ball was in front of the bag, and he didn't want to hear that."
As Guillen exited the field through the tunnel next to the Red Sox dugout, Valentine waved. Asked if he said anything to his Miami counterpart, Valentine recalled saying, "See ya."
Guillen did not see or hear Valentine's remarks, but asked how he would have reacted, Guillen made his feelings clear.
"I don't see it. I would have told him to go and [expletive] himself, too," said Guillen, with a laugh. "That's the way Ozzie Guillen is."
