Quote(s) of the Day

I love Spring Training. In a loose atmosphere, players are more likely to open up and crack jokes, and it allows for some comedic gold. [All quotes taken from stories on if I had access to Fort Myers, I sure as hell wouldn't be here in Connecticut right now.]

When asked about his physique, David Ortiz said he thought he looked good: "I'm not going to look like Ricky Martin right now... I wish I could look like Ricky Martin." Umm... I for one do not want Big Papi to look like Ricky Martin, if it's all the same.

Apparently, Bill Hall asked Dustin Pedroia why so many reporters were gathered around his locker. The feisty second baseman, as always, had a quick answer: "Checking out this body, dude." Personally, I think people hang around to hear quips like that one...

  1. What was funnier was when David Ortiz told the reporters that they should see him naked! Ian Browne mentioned it. It was so FUNNY!
