    Man, I remember the ’93 White Sox. You know, they could’ve been the team playing the Phillies in that World Series.

    Frank slapping doubles all over the place, McDowell striking out people left and right, Robin Ventura *not* getting into a fist cuff with Ryan. Ozzie doing something productive, playing short. Good ol’ days.

    Well, at least we have 2005.

  2. I was bartending at a resort filled with Ontarians during the 1993 WS – I watched every inning on a huge projection screen while serving drinks in a huge bar filled with fellow Blue Jays fans.

    You have never seen a place go nuts the way that resort did when Carter roped that Mitch Williams pitch over the left field wall.

    Great memory…

  3. Good info on these former Phills greats…I remember this team very well. Hmm…Dykstra seems pretty “self-aware” now in his business endeavors

  4. I think Dykstra recently sold the car washes. On Real Sports w/Bryant Gumbel, he admitted that the premium car wash was a ripoff; stick with the mid-level.

  5. Also surprised to hear that Darren Daulton’s soap opera career hasn’t taken off. Remember that thrilling episode of Santa Barbara that he appeared in?

    Scioscia: You’re right! I can’t even feel the pantylines.

    Garland: I’m telling you, Spanx are the best.

    Napoli: I gotta get me some of those.

  7. “I want to make friends with it.”

  8. Scioscia: You gotta rub it right here Jon… this is where all the ladies like it

    Garland: Easy there Skip…I’m doing fine without your help

  9. Francisco was right. Those glute exercises are really paying off.

  10. Sarah Green says:

    Scioscia: This uniform, what’s it made from?

    Garland: I don’t know, cotton?

    Scioscia: No. This is not cotton. Here, lemme see….Oh. Of course. Polyester!

    Napoli: So?

    Scioscia: I can’t believe you’re not playing in cotton.

    Garland: Well, this is what they give us.

    Scioscia: You know they used to make leisure suits out of this fabric?

    Napoli: You really think cotton’s better?

    Scioscia: Of course! Alright, maybe I’ll say something to Arte.

  11. Hey! you cant listen to your IPOD while your picthing, I know its in there somewhere

  12. Booj Noonan says:

    Wow! That IS Downy soft!

  13. Coley Ward says:

    “Want to touch the hiney!”

  14. Gar: “I’ve got your rally monkey right here.”

  15. Scioscia: Is this how they did it on the southside Jon ?

    Garland: Omg, how did you know ?

  16. “Just remember – the needle goes HERE.”

    yes thats right, I went there

  17. Napoli: “hey coach, you take a look at his pants, something just isn’t right.”

    Garland: ” coach, i know i’ve been snacking late at night, but do you think these pants make my hips look big?”

    Scioscia: “well it does feel like your retaining water but this is the problem right here, this seem is all wrong for you! This seem would make Otis Nixon or even Willie McGee look fat. Ohh and one more thing, lay off the midnight snacks chunks.”
