Baseball Quotes Of The Day + Lou Piniella

A few good ones.

Two from an article from Jerry Crasnick about Chicago Cubs skipper Lou Piniella:

“People want to talk stuff about our offense. They move the fences back, they take steroids away, what do you expect?”

“I’m a realist, but at the same time, I’m a positive realist,” Piniella said. “I come to the ballpark recharged every day to win a baseball game. That’s what I enjoy.” – Piniella on himself

Here’s one from Cubs GM Jim Hendry on Piniella.

“Lou always had this aura where people think he’s hard on players all the time — the ‘rule with an iron fist’ thing,” Hendry said. “But I don’t find that. He genuinely cares about them on and off the field, probably more than they would ever know.” — Hendry on Piniella

And here’s an awesome joke from San Diego outfielder Brian Giles on steroids.

“People want to talk stuff about our offense. They move the fences back, they take steroids away, what do you expect?”

Hah. I would’ve posted some baseball pictures too, but I’m tired and running late.
