Starting 2014 With Some Baseball Quotes.
“I am looking forward to this. It sounds corny, but I love baseball too much to be hurt.” – Brett Anderson (on learning of his trade to the Rockies)
“I didn’t appreciate that. Just play the game. They pay him $136 million to hit home runs. They don’t pay him to be a circus act on the field. If I think a player shows me up like that, I like the next guy to take one in the stinkin’ ribs. That way, his teammate will let him know about it, he will tell him, ‘Hey, you’d better run the bases.'” – Jake Peavy (on Alfonso Soriano showing up teammate, David Wells after a home run)
“I don’t use the strike zone much,” he says. “I’m looking for something to hammer. I don’t have time to argue whether the pitch was two inches either way. Besides, that sumbuck in blue back there has more problems than I do.” – Dick Allen
