Help JFK's Quote of the Day

Hello, I’m jrockies and a member of Purple Row. Every day I post a baseball related quote to the site noted as "JFK’s Quote of the Day." I have, however, come up with a problem. Most of the quotes I have are from former players/coaches (Berra, Mayes, Hornsby, Peter Uueberroth, etc.) or older authors and sports writers (Boswell, Russell Baker, Kahn, etc.) and I don’t have many from players and writers of today’s period. As an attempt to build my list of quotes I have decided to ask the different baseball communities around SBNation to help me out. I don’t get to read local articles for non-Denver teams very often and I know that players have said something wise/funny/absurd that should be remembered somewhere ("These are thin mints. I put them in the freezer. My favorites. So good." ~Reds outfielder Adam Dunn, on the Girl Scout cookies he keeps in his locker) So here is the challenge: In the comments section post your all-time favorite baseball quotes (I don’t have all of them) and your favorite quotes you’ve heard from around the league in recent years. For the next two weeks I will post my quote of the day in the comments here. Thanks, jrockies JFK

Sanchez waived & claimed by CUBS?!?! WTF?

Per, Eduardo Sanchez was claimed off waivers by the Cubs. I'm trying to imagine why guys like Marte or Cleto were not waived instead...

ESPN Best Uni Poll

Haven't posted in a long time, but this seemed necessary! ESPN has a best uni vote and the championship is the Cardinals vs. the Orioles. Since they have live updating of the poll, I was able to see the Cardinals are down 55-45. Go vote!

Brilliant critique of FS Midwest broadcasts

This is a link to a post on Aaron Miles Fastball comparing and contrasting the effort other broadcasts put forth, and the dreck we have to endure on FS Midwest. And as the blog posts concludes--from a Cubs fan, no less--as Cardinals fans we deserve better.
