quote:
One of my favorites, Ralph Kiner, made No. 42 for his work with the Mets, which included occasional funny gaffes. Some examples of Kinerese:

• "It's Father's Day today, so to all you fathers out there, happy birthday."

• "Scott Sanderson was traded from Montreal on Pearl Harbor Day, June 7, 1983."

• And, finally, this observation about an outfielder named Mookie Wilson: "Rookie Wilson was a candidate for Mookie of the Year."

A few more Kiner quotes courtesy David H. Nathan's Baseball Quotations:

• "All his saves have come during relief appearances."

• "All of the Mets' road wins against Los Angeles this year have been at Dodger Stadium."

• "The Pirates won eight of their 102 losses against the Mets last year."

• "Tony Gwynn was named Player Of The Year for April."
