  • worst quotes in red sox history

    Just thinking about quotes that I hate hearing. And I was wondering what quotes do you guys hate hearing from past red sox games, as more quotes are posted I'll add them to this list: Here's mine:

    "So the winning run is at second base, with two outs, three and two to Mookie Wilson. (A) little roller up along first... behind the bag! It gets through Buckner! Here comes Knight, and the Mets win it!" - Vin Scully- 1986 World series, game 6

    Reporter: Any concerns for tomorrow, your first day at Spring Training? Dice K: (lengthy answer in Japanese)
    Interpreter: Mr Matsuzaka san has concern about play catch...finding his...uh...play catch buddy.

    "We're loaded with pitching!"

    "[Clemens] is in the twilight of his career"

    " Who is Karim Garcia ? "

    "To the greatest Red Sox team ever!" then everyone else screams "EVER!" ( I dont see how this is one of the worst though)

    It wasn't from a game, but how about Jeff Russell, when whining about his contract negotiations, claimed he was the best bargain in baseball since Babe Ruth?

      "I believe in the Church of Baseball. I tried all the major religions and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I learned that, I gave Jesus a chance." ~Ron Shelton, from Bull Durham

              You misquoted him...

              It was.. "To the greatest Red Sox team ever!" then everyone else screams "EVER!"

              I personally loved that. Would be one of my "Best quotes in red sox history"

                      Some nominations:
                      "Manny Ortiz"
                      -John Kerry, when asked who his favorite Red Sox player is.

                      Carl Everett: 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.

                      Reporter: What about dinosaur bones?

                      Carl: Made by man.
                      - "Jurassic" Carl Everett, on... well.. I'm not sure how this one came up.

                      We are just "the idiots" this year.
                      - Johnny Damon, on the 2004 Red Sox ( A nickname I always hated )

                      "I will never play for the Yankees."
                      -Johnny Damon (In his defense, I couldn't find a source, but I've heard/seen this quote many times)

                      The great story we were talking about the other night was that famous red stocking that he wore when they finally won, the blood on his stocking. Nah. It was painted. Doug Mirabelli confessed up to it after. It was all for PR. Two ball, two strike count.....
                      - Gary Thorne, on the 2004 "Bloody Sock" during a Red Sox/Orioles game, 2007.

                      It's in between a slider and a cutter. I tried the cutter and it was hit-and-miss. The slider really wasn't me, and I just kind of cut the ball at the end and it moves like a slider. It's a 'slutter'. ... When I throw it, I don't pronate [downward twisting motion with his fingers] when I let the ball go. I leave my palm [up]. I kind of cut the ball. That's the angle it comes out.
                      - Jonathon Papelbon, on his new invented pitch, called the "slutter".

                        Quote:
                        "I will never play for the Yankees."

                        -Johnny Damon (In his defense, I couldn't find a source, but I've heard/seen this quote many times)
                        "There's no way I can go play for the Yankees, but I know they're going to come after me hard," Johnny Damon told mlb.com in May 2005. "It's definitely not the most important thing to go out there for the top dollar, which the Yankees are going to offer me. It's not what I need."


                        Alas there is your quote. What a load of poo.

                          I'm not sure if he coined it, but every time Tim McCarver says "Manny being Manny" -- I cringe. Come to think of it any time McCarver says just about anything I cringe.

                            Kerry also once said that his all-time favorite Red Sox player is Eddie Yost, who, incidentally, never played for the Red Sox.
                            "Too many pitchers, that's all, there are just too many pitchers Ten or twelve on a team. Don't see how any of them get enough work. Four starting pitchers and one relief man ought to be enough. Pitch 'em every three days and you'd find they'd get control and good, strong arms."

                            -Cy Young
