The Book of Mike

"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.” -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

There's Always Next Year

Interviewed last night after the game, Cubs hitting coach Gary Matthews spoke about the Cubs history of blowing leads in playoff series. He was quoted (by the Miami Herald) as saying, "The Cubs lost in '84 and they lost in '89, but we're not dealing in the past. We're dealing with the future."

... um, Gary, slow down. Let's deal with what happens between the past and the future - it's called the present.

Another great quote came from the Marlins pinch hitter extraordinaire Lenny Harris. When asked about his teammates (also quoted from the Herald), Harris said, "These guys are like men at Toys R Us. They feel no pressure. It's surprising."

I honestly have no idea what Lenny is talking about. If you do, please email me. Needless to say, if Lenny gives quotes like these, I don't think we'll be hearing him as a 3rd announcer in the FOX booth anytime soon.
