Quote of the Day II: Joel Zumaya

Mar 3, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

Another fun thing from that Tigers exhibition game yesterday.  Joel Zumaya plunked one of the college players, who then pretended to be angry and acted like the umpire was holding him back from charging the mound.  Funny! Just as funny was Zumaya’s reaction:

“I wasn’t sure at first that he (wasn’t going to charge the mound) so I thought ‘I hope you’re 18 years old, kid, because
I’m going beat your butt.’”

    Two in a row? The Strw one was better IMHO.

    That’s big talk from a guy who injured himself playing guitar hero.

    Yeah, I cannot read Zumaya’s name without picturing him running from blazing fire carrying his Guitar Hero guitar.

    Awesome. I just pictured him in El Mariachi (which would be a pretty kick-ass nickname for him, btw….)
