Your favorite baseball quote of all time?

I like Willie Stargell's "Trying to hit Sandy Koufax was like trying to drink coffee with a fork."

"I swing big, with everything I've got. I hit big or I miss big. I like to live as big as I can." by Babe Ruth

...and continuing with the Yogi trend.."It's like deja vu all over again."
[i]"Who's Karim Garcia? I have no respect for Karim Garcia. I have no respect for that guy. I don't have anything to prove to that guy. He needs to be forcing himself to come up to where I am, to my level."[/i]

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Dont forget the great Mickey Rivers, here are sopme of his more famous ones...

"Me and George and Billy are two of a kind."

"My goals are to hit .300, score 100 runs, and stay injury-prone."

"Out of what, a thousand?" Mickey Rivers, responding to teammate Reggie Jackson's claim he had an IQ of 160.

"No wonder you're all mixed up. You got a white man's first name, a Spanish man's second name and a black man's third name." - also about reggie.

"He's so ugly. When you walked by him, your pants wrinkle. He made fly balls curve foul."

"I might have to commute. You know, left field, DH, wherever."

"The first thing you do when you get out to center field is put up your finger and check the wind-chill factor."

"The wind was blowin' about 100 degrees"

"He was lost out there. He was the Lost Mohegan."

Willie Mays Hayes: "I'm Willie Mays Hayes. I hit like Mays, and I run like Hayes."

Lou Brown: "Well, you may run like Mays, but you hit like sh*t."

OR

Eddie Harris: "You might think about taking Jesus Christ as your savior instead of foolin' around with all this stuff."

Pedro Cerrano: "Ahhh, Jesus. I like him very much. But he no help with curveball."

Eddie Harris: "You tryin' to say Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball???"

I loved Majore League ;-D .

Oh man so many good ones...Ill go with the great Roberto Clemente

"I felt kind of bashful (when the fans went crazy). I'm a very quiet, shy person, although you writers might not believe because I shout sometimes."

"If I could sleep. I could hit .400."

''Any time you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don't, then you are wasting your time on Earth.''
