It all looks so easy from the dugout. It's called the 'dirt rule'. The farther you get away from the dirt, the easier this game looks. It looks pretty darned easy from the upper deck. And, like I say, it looks easy to me now. I'm sitting in the dugout, and I see a guy try to pull an outside pitch, he hits a slow ground ball to second base, and it drives me crazy. I'm thinking, 'Why does he do that? Why is this guy so stupid?' Of course, I must have done the exact same thing 5000 times when I was a player.

You step into the batter's box, and immediately you turn into a third-grader. Fortunately, pitchers are like second-graders.

Referring to the infamous Pine Tar Game of 1983; who'd want to be remembered as the Hemorrhoids Guy?
