"Aw, how could he (Jorge Orta) lose the ball in the sun, he's from Mexico."

"This has been the remarkable thing about the fans in Chicago, they keep drawing an average of a million-three a year, and, when the season's over and they've won their usual seventy-one games, you feel that those fans deserve a medal."

"You know Steve, Salazar spelled backwards is razalass."

"You know they're not going to lose 162 consecutive games."
