Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Dave: Everyone has a breaking point, turning point, stress point, the game is permeated with it. The fans don't see it because we make it look so efficient. But internally, for a guy to be successful, you have to be like a clock spring, wound but not loose at the same time.

    • Dave: Baseball realizes it's not the only game in town. You have to do these kinds of things to introduce people to baseball.

    • Dave: The only players that are having fun are those having a good year, feasting on pitching or blowing down hitters and garnering all the adulation that goes with it. But, if you're not hitting or not throwing well, or are injured, you better look for fun someplace else.

    • Dave: I never had to cheat, I get them with what I got.

    • Dave: Good hitters don't just go up and swing. They always have a plan. Call it an educated deduction. You visualize. You're like a good negotiator. You know what you have, you know what he has, then you try to work it out.

    • Dave: These days baseball is different. You come to Spring Training, you get your legs ready, your arms loose, your agent ready, your lawyer lined up.

    • Dave: If it won't taint. Leave it alone.

    • Dave: He didn't bask in fame or glory or the money he made. He relished in the notion that a little short kid from the projects in Chicago couldn't accomplish anything in life.

    • Dave: Tom Cruise only makes one or two film appearances a year. A baseball player can be the hero or the goat one-hundred and sixty-two times a year.
