One of the more popular segments I do over at 90 Feet of Perfection, is my “Baseball Quotes” posts. I figured, why not do the same thing here on The 5.5 Hole but related to the Padres and San Diego baseball. Enjoy!
“Anything Tony Gwynn Sr. wore, I wanna wear.” – Matt Kemp on the Padres brown uniforms
“Not a chance, you go to hell for wearing that uniform!” – Tim Flannery, when asked if he’d ever take a job with the Dodgers
“My first thought was, ‘Some of these guys have better control than my starting pitchers.’ My second thought was, ‘We’re dead.” – Dick Williams on rock throwing Tiger fans after the 1984 World Series
“Just when you think you got this game licked, the baseball gods will creep up on you and bring you to your knees.” – Mark Grant
“If you don’t pick Tony Gwynn, all of you are fired.” – Jack McKeon, on drafting Gwynn
You don’t see pictures of Dick Williams in the jersey too much…all my memories of him are in the 84 era jersey.
