Sox legend Guillen leaving Chicago again … but just for the suburbs

Former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is selling his home in Bucktown. Guillen and his wife, Ibis, are moving to the southwest suburbs to be closer to their infant granddaughter. The couple paid $2 million for the 6,700-square-foot house at 1627 North Wolcott Avenue in 2011, and plans to list the home within the next week at $2.5 million. Emily Santos of @properties has the listing. Guillen played for the Sox for 15 years and later managed the team for another seven, including during the 2005 World Series championship season.
