Quote of the Day: 'It makes me want to vomit'

Leave a comment

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, speaking yesterday about fans and media members criticizing outfielder Chris Duncan for hitting just .227/.329/.358:

I get so tired of the unfair treatment of Chris Duncan. It makes me
want to vomit. And you can quote me on that. This guy is treated
unfairly. These fans have a reputation of being knowledgeable that they
deserve but they have a couple quirks. And he is one of them.

Someone may want to get La Russa a barf bag, because less than 24 hours after he made those statements the Cardinals have demoted Duncan back to Triple-A.

Incidentally, in the history of mankind has making a statement ending
in “and you can quote me on that” ever turned out positively for
someone?

Brian Dozier’s shot to center got stuck in the wall at Target Field

You don’t see this every day …

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier hit a blast to dead-center field in the first inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Tigers and it neither cleared the fence, nor banged off the fence, nor dropped in front of it.

Instead, the ball found a comfortable home inside the wall …

This isn’t the first wall-sticker for Dozier. He put a ball in the bullpen fence in Washington during an exhibition game against the Nationals back in 2016.
