"Bill Lee said in answer to Jim Prime's question about what had made him an eccentric replied, “I used to play for the Alaska Goldpanners, and when you play on permafrost, and it warms and your centerfielder disappears, that leads to eccentricity.”

2000 Shrine of the Eternal

“You’re supposed to sit on your ass and nod at stupid things
Man that’s hard to do
And if you don’t they’ll screw you
And if you do, they’ll screw you too
When I’m standing in the middle of he diamond all alone
I always play to win
When it comes to skin and bond
And sometimes I say things I shouldn’t
Like…
And sometimes I say things I shouldn’t
Like…”
--“Bill Lee” by Warren Zevon
 


  • You should enter a ballpark the way you enter a church.

  • Hell, if KY jelly went off the market, the whole California Angels pitching staff would be out of baseball.

  • I think about the cosmic snowball theory. A few million years from now the sun will burn out and lose its gravitational pull. The earth will turn into a giant snowball and be hurled through space. When that happens it won't matter if I get this guy out.

  • I would change policy, bring back natural grass and nickel beer. Baseball is the belly-button of our society. Straighten out baseball, and you straighten out the rest of the world.

  • Most of the managers are lifetime .220 hitters. For years pitchers have been getting these managers out 75% of the time and that's why they don't like us.

  • I'm mad at Hank Aaron for deciding to play one more season. I threw him his last home run and thought I'd be remembered forever. Now, I'll have to throw him another.

  • If it had been me out there, I'd had bitten him his ear off. I'd have Van Gogh'ed him.

  • Kids don't learn the fundamentals of baseball at the games anymore.

  • People are too hung up on winning. I can get off on a really good helmet throw.

  • The more self-centered and egotistical a guy is, the better ballplayer he's going to be.

  • That was real baseball. We weren't playing for money. They gave us Mickey Mouse watches that ran backwards.

  • The only rule I got is if you slide, get up.

  • The other day they asked me about mandatory drug testing. I said I believed in drug testing a long time ago. All through the sixties I tested everything.

  • There's nothing in the world like the fatalism of the Red Sox fans, which has been bred into them for generations by that little green ballpark, and the wall, and by a team that keeps trying to win by hitting everything out of sight and just out-bombarding everyone else in the league. All this makes Boston fans a little crazy and I'm sorry for them.

  • You take a team with twenty-five assholes and I'll show you a pennant. I'll show you the New York Yankees.
