Ball Four Quotes (3)

Quoting Jim Pagliaroni: "It's hard to say exactly what she looked like. She was kind of a Joe Torre with tits." Bouton: "This joke can only be explained with a picture of Joe Torre. But I'm not sure any exist. He dissolves camera lenses."

"[W]e were told that ... we'd have to take batting practice at 10:30 [a.m.]. 'Ten thirty?' said Pagliaroni. 'I'm not even done throwing-up at that hour.'"

"I think [pitching coach] Sal [Maglie] and [magager] Joe [Shultz] put me up there with [fellow pitcher Mike] Marshall in the weirdo department. They don't believe that my kind of guy can do the job, so when I am successful They're surprised. When Fred Talbot does the job, well, he's from the old school, blood and guts, spit a little tobacco juice on it."

Joe Shultz: "Attaway to stomp 'em. Stomp the piss out of 'em. Stomp 'em when they're down. Kick 'em and stomp 'em... Attaway to go boys. Pound that ol' Budweiser into you and go get them tomorrow."

"Then there's the tale of Jim Gosger told about hiding in a closet to shoot a little beaver while his roommate made out on the bed with some local talent. Nothing sneaky about it, the roommate even provided the towel for Gosger to bite on in case he was moved to laughter. At the height of activity on the bed, the local talent, moaning, says, 'Oh darling, I've never done it that way before. Whereupon Gosger sticks his head out, drawls, 'Yeah surrre' and retreats into the closet.... After he told the story, 'yeah surrre,' became a watchword around the club."
