Ozzie Guillen would appreciate knowing as soon as possible where he stands with the Chicago White Sox.

He knows what he wants: to end his managerial career in the Windy City. If owner Jerry Reinsdorf and general manager Ken Williams have other plans, Guillen understands.

The outspoken skipper addressed his uncertain future after a 4-3 win at Oakland on Wednesday that stopped Chicago's season-worst eight-game skid. The 46-year-old Guillen is signed through 2012, but his rocky relationship with Williams could cause the sides to part ways sooner. There's been thought Guillen has his eyes on the Florida Marlins' opening, though he insists he wants to stay put.

Guillen led the White Sox to a World Series title in 2005 in his second season.
