Former White Sox closer Bobby Jenks fired on his old team and, in particular, Ozzie Guillen in a recent story by’s Scott Merkin.

His comments didn’t go unnoticed.

Oney Guillen, Ozzie’s son, has tweeted back in defense.

Jenks, who signed a 2-year, $12 million deal to be the setup reliever for the Red Sox, told Merkin: “Why would I come back to that negativity? I’m looking forward to playing for a manager who knows how to run a bullpen.”

Jenks also questioned Guillen’s trust in him.

Oney Guillen posted several responses via Twitter, using explicit language in some: “i thought u were a man not some punk who runs away and talks [b.s.]. u coward. say it to there face when u were with them”

Oney also posted: “and u say the manager didnt trust u? he kept putting ur fat [---] there and u kept blowing it, he never took u away from that role unreal”

The Twitter posts turned personal as Oney Guillen pointed out some of Jenks’ off-the-field issues.

In case you’re wondering: The White Sox first game vs. the Red Sox is May 30 in Boston; the Red Sox play in Chicago on July 29.
