The Invention of Lying....morning sports page edition
Posted 22 July 2012 - 07:37 AM
Why the movie snynopsis? Because as I was reading all of the articles in the sports page this morning it amazes me how many people do not say what they are really thinking, they all lie or if they don't flat out lie, they rationalize. Here is what some of the quotes should really say:
ON MATT GARZA'S INJURY
Garza: " My elbow hurt so bad that I couldn't even move my arm, shit it hurt! Cramps sounds better though, so that's what we went with"
Hoyer: "Garza will most certainly go on the DL, and any hope of trading him this year is probably done, we will continue to minimize the injury and hope and pray a miracle happens"
ON DEMPSTER TRADE RUMORS
Ned Colletti: "We are still trying to obtain Dempster for a couple of B prospect bums who we don't really want. I will continue to leak stories to the press of our non interest to get Dempster without giving up shit "
Hoyer: "This is a scary-ass game of poker we are playing with Dempster, if we dont trade him...we are F#$ked...I will continue to bluff teams trying to milk the best prospects we can"
ON THE TIGERS CATCHING THE WHITE SOX
Ventura: "Damn it, we were up three and a half games like a week ago, now that we are playing these better teams on the road we are exposed a bit, plus there is no way these AAA pitchers will not get hit the second time teams see them...I will just continue to say stuff like 'it's a marathon not a sprint' and 'one game at a time'
Hawk Harrelson: very awkward silence
ON THE CARDINALS 12 RUN INNING AGAINST THE CUBS
Dale Svuem: "Holy F#$ing shit! Did you see that bullshit? What do you expect when you keep throwing crap like Manny Corpas and his 85 MPH fastball out there...12 F#$ing runs in an inning? What is this F#$ing little league, no wait, in F#$ing little league they have a run limit...maybe that's what we F#$ing need..."
if you read the papers this morning, you read the opposite of the truth
