Chicago White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen says he doesn't know what his future with the team looks like. Guillen's contract expires in 2012. He joked with reporters yesterday that no matter what, the White Sox have to pay him for next year.

"To be honest with you, I don't think they're going to fire me because we play the way we play this year," he told reporters Tuesday. "I think they're going to fire me for another reason. You know what I mean? It's just like, 'Ok,we gotta move on. We gotta change this.' It's whatever it is."

The White Sox have won five games in a row, including a win against the Minnesota Twins last night, 8-6. The Sox are five games back from first place in their division.
