Babe Herman, a notoriously terrible fielder but great hitter sneers at a rookie who has been assigned the locker next to his. "Geez, I gotta sit next to a .220 hitter."

The rookie, without missing a beat responds; "How do you think I feel. I gotta sit next to a .220 fielder."

Can't remember who the rookie was, but he ended up managing.

A story Lou Piniella told on FOX yesterday:

In 2001 at the Mariners' spring training, Japanese rookie Ichiro Suzuki is playing his first games in the US. Lou is concerned that Ichiro is hitting the other way only, and thinks maybe he is being overpowered by American fastballs. He talks about this to him and his interpreter, and adds "why dont you try to pull the ball a little bit". In Ichiro's next at bat the hits the first pitch for a home run to right field. As he comes back to the dugout he turns to lou and says, "You happy now?" Lou never bugged Ichiro about his swing ever again.
