Charlie Manuel, when asked whether the Phillies were stealing signs:

“Applesauce. We’re totally on the square, see. Now scram, before I get sore, get me?”

Wait, forgot to run that through the Charlie Manuel-to-modern translator.  Let’s see . . . ah, there we are:

“Keep crying. Absolutely not. Absolutely [bleeping] not. In no way were we stealing signs. We don’t
do that.”

Know what? I don’t know that we really needed the translator after all.
