Here are some quotes from the greatest page on the web, BP's Week in Quotes:
"What this issue is really about is that the owners want the players to police the owners."
--Joe Carter, former outfielder, on labor negotiations [I have newfound respect for Carter and will now forgive the home run in the '93 World Series.]
"Money has to be put in the way a club feels it should. If you put money in a new ballpark, that helps to generate revenue so you can spend more money. It should be spent to make the club's operations the best. That will help in the end, and it will mean enhanced payroll."
--Bud Selig, Commissioner of Baseball, on why owners shouldn't be required to spend revenue-sharing money on player salaries
[Bud, owners don't put money in stadiums for the most part; communities cede them to the onwers.]
"We could not have completed the deal without the direct involvement and help of commissioner Selig. I am sorry the commissioner had to become involved."
--Wilpon [This could be taken two ways.]
"It was like PlayStation out there. Guys were diving and making great plays everywhere you looked."
--Esteban Loaiza, Blue Jays pitcher, on his team's defense during his start against the Athletics
