Potent quotables: World Series edition

“I can’t wait until it’s over. It’s been mentally draining.”


– Cole Hamels can’t wait for the season to be over. If the Yankees grab a 3-1 lead after Game 4, he might just get his wish.

“Because we cannot control what the [Fox] camera man does with the
camera, one of the specific ground rules is when the ball hits the
camera, home run.”

- Crew chief Gerry Davis explains why an Alex Rodriguez flyball was ruled a two-run home run.
The flyball bounced off a camera lens in the right field corner,
resulting in the first ever use of replay in the postseason. Rodriguez
was awarded the home run and the Yankees quickly turned the tide on
Cole Hamels.

“I don’t really read the paper. I’m more a guy that
looks at the pictures. But all of the struggles kept piling on, and the
harder I would try to work, the harder I would try when I got into the
box. To get by that and have a great game like tonight was extremely
gratifying.”


– Nick Swisher says he didn’t let the criticism get to him. He returned to Joe Girardi’s lineup on Saturday night, finishing 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two runs scored.


“They’ve got C. C., but oh well. We got him in Game 1. Why can’t we do it again?”

- The Phillies may be down 2-1, but Shane Victorino is still confident. The big difference between Game 4 and Game 1? No Cliff Lee.

    “We got him in Game 1″??? No, Chase Utley got him in game 1. Twice. The rest of your team did absolutely nothing against CC.

    ‘We’ as in the team. Win as one or lose as one. Looks like they may lose together. Gotta keep trying, can’t give in to the mighty yankees yet.
    Cole Hamels is weak! He doesn’t deserve to be on the bench tonight, because he is not a team player. Watch him roll his eyes when a teammate makes a bad play.
