My Favorite Quotes of the Year 2005 

BP 今天登出來他們挑選的 This Year in Quotes,我從裡面挑出三則來:

"Yes, he offended everyone in the Bay Area."
--Giants manager Felipe Alou, when reminded that A.J. Pierzynski is a more offensive catcher than the defensive-minded Mike Matheny (Sacramento Bee)

"The Yankees have that guy [Tony] Womack [a second baseman] playing left field. If I can't play that position at least as well as he can, I'll hang up the spikes right now."
--outfielder and future Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson, on why he still feels he can play (San Francisco Chronicle)

"He led off for four years in Colorado, so he knows how to do it. I’m just searching for runs."
--Baker, on Neifi Perez hitting leadoff (Arlington Heights Daily Herald)

最後加上最近 Johnny Damon 在簽約記者招待會上面說的話,這不是 BP 那篇文章裡面的:

"I believe it has to be the total number of pitches I see to help get the starting pitchers out of the game sooner than they want to be, the ability to drive in runs, the ability to score runs, get on base. You have to be a dominant player. You can't just run into outs."
--Damon, when asked at his Yankee Stadium news conference on Friday what made him the best leadoff hitter (New York Times)

1. 去年 Jeter 的 #P/PA 比 Damon 高,3.82 vs. 3.72,不過之前兩年 Damon 的確比較好,生涯平均也是 Damon 高一點。
2. Jeter 去年 RBI 較高,放大到整個生涯來看,Jeter 仍然稍優。這是個沒有什麼意義的數字就是了。
3. Jeter 去年 RS 也比較高,不過這數字沒有什麼意義。
4. OBP。

Johnny Damon 是最好的 leadoff hitter,他自己是這麼說的。


Lance Berkman defended Jeff Kent:
"I think (for Bradley) to make it a race issue is ridiculous,"
Berkman said.

"J.K. doesn't discriminate against anybody. He ignores Latinos, blacks and whites equally."
To WuSao,

這當然是消遣。BP 選出來的 quotes 有不少,我挑了三個我自己比較喜歡的。還有一個被我捨棄了,不過不輸前面那些:

--Dodgers pitching coach Jim Colburn, when asked what pitches Kaz Ishii has the most trouble throwing (Bergen Record)
To Herlin,

謝謝這個 quote,我沒有在全國媒體上看到這一條,因為我對那則新聞不太注意。

當時我想的跟 Berkman 說得很接近,不過要我來寫大概沒有 Berkman 這段話這麼精彩。Kent 本來就是個 asshole,不管什麼種族的人應該都會有同樣的感覺。

Kent 如果能夠維持目前的水準打到四十歲,搞不好還會進 HOF 哪。反正 HOF 裡面 a-holes 其實也不少,多一個也不算多。

我不太喜歡這樣排 lineup。你可以排某一場比賽的 lineup,整季 lineup 會變動很多次,排起來沒有什麼意思。

離開幕戰還有 94 天,所以現在也沒有任何必要排三個月之後的比賽的 lineup。我們現在不知道球員狀況如何、健康情形如何,我實在沒興趣排這種 lineup。

這基本上是個 fool-proof lineup,Damon 和 Jeter 會排在前兩棒,我比較喜歡把 Jeter 排在前面,不過 Damon 也不差就是了。接下來三棒怎麼排也都可以,Giambi 可以因為他的高 OBP/SLG 排在前面,A-Rod 和 Sheffield 的 OBP 大概比不上 Giambi,不過他們也不像 Giambi 一樣上了壘就把路給堵死,在他得分之前幾壘安打所有的人就只能推進幾壘。

說到HOF 2B 票選, Lou Whitaker 票實在太少了. 他沒道理連5% 都拿不到

Jeff Kent 應該會進吧.
