Help JFK's Quote of the Day:

Hello, I’m jrockies and a member of Purple Row. Every day I post a baseball related quote to the site noted as "JFK’s Quote of the Day." I have, however, come up with a problem. Most of the quotes I have are from former players/coaches (Berra, Mayes, Hornsby, Peter Uueberroth, etc.) or older authors and sports writers (Boswell, Russell Baker, Kahn, etc.) and I don’t have many from players and writers of today’s period. As an attempt to build my list of quotes I have decided to ask the different baseball communities around SBNation to help me out. I don’t get to read local articles for non-Denver teams very often and I know that players have said something wise/funny/absurd that should be remembered somewhere ("These are thin mints. I put them in the freezer. My favorites. So good." ~Reds outfielder Adam Dunn, on the Girl Scout cookies he keeps in his locker) So here is the challenge: In the comments section post your all-time favorite baseball quotes (I don’t have all of them) and your favorite quotes you’ve heard from around the league in recent years. For the next two weeks I will post my quote of the day in the comments here. Thanks, jrockies JFK

Received Today, a Senators Strasburg Jersey


When I was at the Harrisburg Senators game last Tuesday I saw a number of fans wearing a red Stephen Strasburg Senators jersey. It was clearly a promotional item, it had the logo of one of the local television stations on the sleeve. The morning after the game I scoured eBay, and I found several for sale. It had been given away at the June 1st game against the Trenton Thunder, and sellers were offering it for between 35 and 50 dollars. I bought one, and it arrived today. I don't know that I'll wear it, but it's definitely a neat collectible to have.
