"You know why nobody in the league likes the Dodgers? They've got all the dirty players in the league."
"Would you call them 'dirty,' or maybe 'overaggressive'?"
"Call 'em the way you see 'em, I say."
In the shower room:
"In a fight how would you like to see Hutch and Alston go at it?"
"Even fight. Alston's strong as a bull."
"Yeah, but Hutch is rough as a grizzly bear."
"I gotta take Hutch. On his footwork. Ever see him move when he takes a pitcher out?"
In the dugout:
"Wonder what umpires we'll get in L.A.? Hope it's Jocko's crew. He and Durocher provide comedy relief."
