What players talk about when they talk on the field

14 Comments

James Wagner of the Washington Post has a story up about what players are talking about out there, even if they’re not supposed to be talking to each other in the first place due to those archaic fraternization rules:

“You’re talking to a guy that’s been around so I pretty much know everybody,” [Chiper] Jones said. “I can strike up a conversation with just about anybody out there.”

Except they don’t know what the hell he’s talking about, what with all of those Yicketties and Mammos.

Seriously, though, fun stuff. It reminds you that, even though these guys compete hard, they all have more in common with each other than they do with people not in the game.
