Mets catcher John Buck has your quote of the year, talking about his accidental interference with the sausage race at Miller Park last night while his team faced the Brewers in a weekend series. Buck exited the dugout between innings to take his position at home plate, but didn’t notice that the sausages were stampeding down the side of the field towards him. He weaved through the dashing sausages and everyone left unharmed.

Buck spoke to the media about the incident after the game. Via MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo:

“I was just coming out of the dugout like I normally do,” Buck said. “Then all of the sudden I felt like I had a big wiener over me.”

Almost immediately, boos came raining down.

“They were not happy about it,” Buck said. “They were probably happy I struck out after that. I messed up their wiener race.”

That is the funniest quote since Matt Stairs rehashed his pinch-hit home run in the 2008 NLCS against the Dodgers.

    Thats what she said

    Ahh nvm. I was curious enough to search for it. For anyone else who was out of the loop on the Stairs thing, it’s worth a watch.

      Wow. He sure sounded like he knew what he was talking about. I’m personally not into that but whatever floats your boat.

    My wife knows that feeling when I wake her up every Sunday morning.

    John Buck don’t give a fuck.

      Apparently he receives them :)

    That Matt Stairs quote is an all-timer.

    Gio saying, on a cold day, that he felt like he was making love to his hand–that was a pretty good quote, too.

    I know the feeling having a big wiener over me:

    It starts on Mondays, 8:00AM sharp.

    I wonder what he thought of Kingman`s performance?

    Baseball players have no problem metaphorically coming out. Football players should take note of these comments

    Well, to combine the two quotes, a few years ago, I don’t remember which player, someone ‘ hammered’ one of the sausages with his bat. Dropped him right on the field.

      That would be Randall Simon. He was actually arrested and fined for it too.
