Pass the brie plate

Doug:
Clement seems to have the right stuff when it comes to words, at least.

 


Doug:
Yeah, and as for his falling out of favor with the Cubs and Dusty Baker, I say what the fuck does Dusty Baker know? The guy's the African American version of Gumpy Grady Little.

 

Mike:
Yeah, decides to shut down Clement on Sept 20th then proceeds to go out and lose 7 of the last 9.

 

Doug:
Nobody puts Baby in the corner!

 

Mike:
[Laughs] Fuck yeah. Clement should have pulled a Johnny Castle on Dusty. "This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame."

 

Doug:
Nothing like quoting from Dirty Dancing, the cheesiest movie of all time.

 

Mike:
No shit but the Baby in the corner line only came in second in the BBC poll of cheesiest movie lines all time.

 

Doug:
What's your favorite cheesy Red Sox quote, player or management, all time?

 

Mike:
Ah, that's fucking easy. Wade Boggs, "I am a sex addict." And yours?

 

Doug:
More recent. Pedro: "Fifteen years ago I was sitting under a mango tree without 50 cents to actually pay for a bus. And today, I was the center of attention of the whole city of New York."

 

Mike:
Yeah, that's a mofo classic. There's really a lot of great cheesiness over the years. We should compile a list and rank them on a cheese scale.

 

Doug:
In the immortal words of the acting genius Swayze, "Ditto."

 

Comments

Two words for you...
"Thanks, Beautiful"

I nominate Lou Gorman's "The sun will rise, the sun will set, and I'll have lunch."

How about Little trying to go Jose Melendez with the following third person quote: "If Grady Little is not back with the Red Sox, he'll be somewhere. I'll be another ghost fully capable of haunting."

Numbers are irrelevant to me. They don't mean anything. I never liked them. I don't need a stat to tell me if I had a good game.

-Nomar.

Apparently numbers matter a lot when they are preceeed by a dollar sign.

Joe Morgan after pinch-hitting for Jim Rice in order to sac bunt: "I'm the manager of this here nine!"

And, of course, who can forget The Can's take on the 'fog-out' @ Cleveland Municipal Stadium: "That's what you get when you build a ballpark on the ocean..."

Boggsy constantly referring to himself in the third person deserves honorable mention.

Wow, signing for $24mil must have helped Matty find his sac. He's sure talking tougher game than he ever had in Chicago. He can go from brilliant to brutal, usually in the same inning. Dusty was getting heat to shut him down long before he did. Totally sucked in the 2nd half of the season.....2-5 with a 5.09 ERA after the AS break

I still enjoy Millars comments after the Mientkiewicz acquisition: "I refuse to be lack-of-communicated to"

You are all coming up with some great quotes. (I knew you would.)

My personal favorite: "When Pedro or Curt or anybody pitches a bad game, they pitch bad. I pitch bad and I'm a mental gidget." -- Derek Lowe

When Bill Lee was traded from the Red Sox to the Expos at the end of the disaster that was 1978, he was asked if he was upset to leave Boston. His reply: "Who wants to be on a team that goes down in history with the '64 Phillies and the '67 Arabs?"

JB, you stole my DLowe quote.

"God created the sun, the stars, the heavens and the earth, and then made Adam and Eve," Everett said last Friday, before the Red Sox lost two of three in Atlanta. "The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can't say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Someone actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex. You can't prove dinosaurs ever existed. I feel it's far-fetched."
-Carl Everett

If I was in Cleveland, they'd be naming malls after me.--Lou Gorman.

Damn...I'd forgotten what a total quote machine Lou "Lunch" Gorman was during his heyday. "What would we do with Willie McGee anyway?"

"Nobody puts baby in the corner," leads right
to -- Hey George, "Do you like apples?" Well, we're getting our rings in your stadium...How'ya like them apples!"
