Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, fresh off a two-game suspension, has been suspended for two more games for calling umpire Hunter Wendelstedt a liar.

Guillen, who finished a two-game suspension following inappropriate comments and actions directed toward Wendelstedt in a game on August 9 against the Indians, received his latest punishment for comments he made to reporters. He was also fined $2,000. "I don't blame them to suspend me or whatever it is," said Guillen, "but the guy lied. Whatever his name is, Hunter or whatever. He lied. He lied to Major League Baseball, he lied to Mr. (Bob) Watson, he lied to Mr. Sandy Alderson," Guillen said. "You are not a real man when you lie, especially when you write it down." Guillen began serving his latest suspension Thursday night against Detroit. He will be eligible to return Saturday, when the White Sox host Boston. Meanwhile, White Sox general manager Kenny Williams supported his manager and had some critical things to say of Alderson, the executive vice president of baseball operations, and the former Oakland Athletics' general manager. "I don't mind telling you that the conversation between Sandy Alderson and myself got pretty heated," said Williams, "and its unfortunate. I felt it could have been handled in a much different way. I don't like being talked to in the tone and the matter in which he talked to me in regards to this situation. Because I'm neither his child nor do I work for him. He was put in the position to understand what we go through as general managers and what we go through as field personnel. "So quite frankly at this point and time I'm going to join the legion of general managers who feel like they are neglected in that area," continued Williams. "But that's another case for another day and it's what it is right now. It's something we have to deal with but we are going to keep fighting, and again part of the reason he (Ozzie) is here is because of the fight in him."
