Baseball Quote of the Day

While the world waits with bated breath for Mr. Sax's response to the pro-right wing... I mean pro-parking article in today's LA Times, the Delino presents the unofficial baseball movie quote of the day. Everybody knows Crash Davis's "I believe" speech from Bull Durham, but this quote sums up baseball even better (without making your wives wish they married a Kevin Costner.)

CRASH - You know what the difference is between hitting .250 and hitting .300? I got it figured out. (beat) Twenty-five hits a year in 500 at bats is 50 points. Okay? There's 6 months in a season, that's about 25 weeks -- you get one extra flare a week -- just one -- a gork, a ground ball with eyes, a dying quail -- just one more dying quail a week and you're in Yankee Stadium!

Mr. Loney - keep this quote in mind while sitting at .260. (Although Bobby Abreu can attest, .300 is no longer a requirement to be in pinstripes.)
