Quote of the Month - Semi-Finals

Okay, I can't read everything all the time, so I need your guys' help. Here are the quotes I've collected during the month. Don't vote yet. If you know of a funny quote that was not included, PLEASE post it in this diary.

I will be taking submissions until NOON on Friday. At that time, I will delete this diary and post another one, this one with all the quotes, numbered. In that diary, you will be given voting instructions. I'll make the final count at midnight on Monday (Labor Day).

Thanks for playing! Good luck to everyone!

Clearly, you are not a baseball.

...A year later, I lived with two girls, one was a die-hard Sox fan with a creepy Pedro Martinez bobblehead that I, to this day, believe came alive at night....

In response to salb918, "Neutron stars have their own internal problems; nobody seems to take charge in that group."

Haha
Actually, a neutron star is a really close group.  Though just between you and me, they are a little dense.

Over the fence, repeatedly?

on raccoons...

I had one in my house once.

Raccoons are EVERYWHERE in Connecticut.  If you don't have your garbage cans secured properly overnight, it's not a matter of "if" your trash will be strewn all over the place--just when.

I made the mistake of leaving the garage door open one night, and only shut the screen door into the house.  The raccoon opened the screen door and headed straight for the pantry.  My father saw it, and ran away screaming "BEAR!", because he didn't know the English word for raccoon, and raccoon is "Waeschbaer" in German (too lazy to find the umlauts).  It tore open a plastic bottle of maple syrup, among other things.  That sure was fun to clean off a hardwood floor.

after one of the near-grand slams

Love it when Gameday gets emotional in its placement of outs -- the Swisher fly out was represented by a fat red dot somewhere on the left field stairs.

on holidays

Yeah, Santa has a strained oblique.
He's holiday-to-holiday.

Sure.
Scioscia is widely considered to be a good clubhouse manager (almost to a fault).  But if he ordered no retaliations, and his men always follow orders, then why was Santiago is such grave danger?  Whoops, I mean, why were extra beanballs thrown?

Kyli

I remember Hatteberg saying the best hitting coaches were bad hitters, because they don't try and make you hit like they did.

Obviously, there's only one solution.

BARRY ZITO FOR HITTING COACH.

on spelling Scioscia

The Angel manager's last name is spelled:
W-h-i-n-e-y-b-i-t-c-h. For future reference.

In response to, "MLB is attempting to get fantasy sports sites to pony up for the use of players' names and stats.  They were unsuccessful, but plan to appeal"

(salb918) MLB's plan:
Take an activity that is increasing the popularity of baseball and make sure nobody else can offer it.
Make yourself the sole provider of the activity.
F--- it up with a bad user interface and shitty customer service.
Charge people to use it.

Rule #1
The stats for players on your roster, in your geographic area, are "blacked out" and must be entered manually, at the ballpark.

Nebraska

Shoeless Jay Witasick...
Will he be portrayed in a future movie by Ray Liotta wearing a tube top?

Durden

I concur
You're right about Kruk. His biggest announcing claim before BBTN was Best Damn Sports Show where he sat and let Tom Arnold make fun of him and humiliate him on national TV.

I say bring in Rickey Henderson. It would be awesome to watch Rickey give analysis while referring to himself in 3rd person like he used to.

"Rickey believes that the Tigers are headed for a downward slide because Rickey doesn't see their bullpen holding up all year."

In response to schnucken, "I hope Kendall puts on extra padding before every Rangers game. "

My friends like me, my family likes me, some of my ex-girlfriends like me. Hell, even the A's have liked me 9 times more than they haven't! Chill out.

rocks gently back and forth with arms outstretched singing "We have youuuurrrr spaaaaace, 5-A Rent-a-Spaaaaaaaaaaace" to comfort himself at prospect of Loaiza staying in this game

Nico  

Now those hotel surveys
make sense. You know the ones where you rate, "How was our service?" (circle one)

Excellent  Very Good  Good  Fair  Poor  Loaiza

Thanks for calling.

With apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein...

How do you solve a problem like Nick Swisher?
How do you take a bat and swing it `round?
How do you find a word that means Nick Swisher?
A towering homer! A swing and a miss! Sit down!
Many a thing you know you'd like to tell him.
Can Slusser keep him out of the pub crawl?
Will he try to rebel,
If he goes on the DL?
How do you keep his eye upon the ball?
Oh, how do you solve a problem like Nick Swisher?
How do you end his OPS freefall?

In response to Turn Two, "Does this mean they aren't endangered anymore? A zoo in China now has 16 panda cubs.

Finally.
My jacket should be arriving any day now.

~Sorry, I lost who posted this...can someone post it below?

You know what I can't get over?
That freaky teddy bear on those fabric softener ads.
Snuggle? Yeah, here it is:

I'm tellin' ya, if this thing ever shows up in my laundry, I'm stuffing it head-first in the garbage disposal.
That bear creeps me out.

Great play Chavy!
This is a recording!

Jennifer: They should have an ice cream machine installed over at first. I'd bet Joe would hustle over there more often.
asfaninTX: I wonder what his favorite flavor is?
Jennifer: Do they make vodka flavored ice cream?

Tonight's my anniversay, so I better finish typing this before my significant other gets out of the bathroom -- sweet K for Joe!  "see" everyone next time...

A's Notes: Harden exceeds expectations

that's great news
but "exceeds expectations" by how much?  because i expected him to be dead...

In response to LAXile, "can i hire someone to do stat research
on how many runs the A's have scored on errors in a ratio to how many runs they save with their stellar d?  what would be a good acronym for this stat?"

In response to louismg, "Nico for Manager!
He called Crosby and Komine!
(Of course, he called everybody on the roster. Most didn't return the calls...)

He must've hacked Alyssa Milano's PDA again
