"Holy shit that ball is just floating there! Manny, are you doing that?"
"Naw not me, are you doing that?"

Fred's Brim said...

How many of those have we "dropped" this year? I remember a few early in the season between Matt and Dre. "Too many" is the only appropriate answer I guess

Matt: "Pierre paid me $50 to make him look good."

Manny: "What? He only paid me $25!"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Manny: You got it!
Matt: No, you!
Manny: No, I insist, you pick it up.
Matt: No, you had the ball first, you pick it up.
Manny: Nonsense, you're the center-fielder.
Martin: Hey guys, uh, Guzman's coming around to score.
Matt: Shut up, Russell, we're trying to figure something out.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp: "I lost one of my new contacts! It's the source of all my power this season."

Manny: "I know about something else you can use to boost your power."

Manny: I uh... (cough) lost it in the sun...

Matt: Yeah... uh, I uh, slipped and uh... I thought you had it, but you lost it in the sun, like you said, so then I uh slipped and lost my concentration and... who the F cares, WERE PLAYING A MINOR LEAGUE TEAM ANYWAY!

Marlon Perkins (off-camera): See how Matt and Manny have surrounded the wild ball. Notice their careful movements so's to not "spook" the ball and make it flee to safety. Careful. . .careful.

Matt Kemp (on scene): Hey Manny, why the hell is Marlon always back in the tent whipping up margaritas, and we're out here busting our asses and getting attacked by wild baseballs. Man, that's all we do; bag and tag, bag and tag. Meanwhile, some old dude is getting his drink on and talking up the ladies on my dime.

It was the wrong moment for Manny Ramirez to give Matt Kemp a birthday surprise.

Sorry, my caption only works if you have any memory of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. The one that came on before the Wonderful World of Disney; not the one on Nat Geo now.

Oh forget it. I'm old.

Hey Bison! I think we have it surrounded.

Watch carefully as the two alpha males of the herd confuse each other, and see another kill slip through their grasps. The lion cubs will go hungry tonight.
