Larry King Presents

Hey, that Manny Ramirez is a heckuva hitter....If I'm playing one game, and one game only, I'm sure as hell certain that I don't want Tony Armas pitching....Have you ever seen a manager intentionally walk so many batters....Is there anything more beautiful than watching a homer bounce off a Coke bottle?....A ballpark just isn't a ballpark without obstructed views....Boy, that Daryle Ward is fat....That Kyle Snyder is a lucky sonofabitch....Isn't that Nat Pack great?....If you can see just one movie this year, don't....When I watch the ageless Mike Stanton pitch, I think to myself "they don't make 'em like they used to, and they sure don't pitch like they used to either."...

I feel bad for Brendan Harris.....He's no Royce Clayton....Jason Bergmann is sure to give the team a lift....I wonder if he's related to Ingmar?....Jon Rauch is tough as balls....What's failing faster: Soriano's batting average or his trade value?....If you believe in momentum in baseball, look no further than Ryan Zimmerman....That Marlon Byrd sure fills out a pair of pants....Has anyone ever noticed that Coco Crisp is a funny name?.....

The fans voting Soriano second among NL outfielders shows how beloved he is....Royce Clayton doesn't even register....Is there a prettier swing in baseball than Brian Schneider's?....With the bases loaded, there's no one I want at bat more than Jose Guillen....

  • Duck to Ryan Zimmerman. Two double plays, three left on, and one bad hangover.

    • Zimmerman may be the Duck, but Soriano is the Goat for striking out three times.

      Also, I'm beginning to understand why you're so down on Paciorek. The things he was saying during last night's broadcast were so irrelevant and strange that Bob Carpenter, at times, didn't even know how else to respond other than chuckling nervously.

      Wimpy was making odd sound effects and, at one point, was inexplicably doing a horrible impersonation of Ray Romano that led Carpenter to tell him that he sounded like Cookie Monster. Is Paciorek high when he calls these games?

      There has to be some kind of more respectable color man looking for work out there.

    • Paciorek needs to go back to cutting commercials for 'Funny Nose-Glasses Night.' (His first commercial as a member of the Seattle Mariners)

    • By the way, it looks as thought the City and Lerner have cut a deal on the parking garages, with part above ground and part below.

      Not sure to what extent this will affect the sighlines, but it's probably the best compromise that could have been hoped for under the circumstances.

    • Paciorek is a certified wackjob. I heard the horrible Ray Romano impression and cringed in embarrassment for him. I couldn't help wondering, "Who the F*&% IS this guy and where the HELL did they get him from?" Even then, it's still a tossup between him and Ron Darling...

    • At least Darling had the good sense to shut the hell up sometimes!
