"Umpires don't like the Dodgers either, y'know. They take too long to play a game. In that weekend series we had in Cincy it took almost nine and a half hours for three games."
"They play fast when they're winning. It takes a long time to beat 'em, though."
"They'll scramble, all right. They're the toughest team in the league to beat, and still they're not the best-hitting club. Milwaukee is."
"They'll beat you any way they can, legal or illegal, dirty or not. It don't matter. Hell, that's baseball. This ain't no Sunday-school picnic. You gotta fight to win in this life."
In the rain:
"What if, say, somebody hits Robby in the first inning and puts him out? Who do we get?"
"They haven't anybody to match Robby. He's 25% of our offense."
"Guess you gotta get 'em all, one after the other."
"Wills and Roseboro, maybe."
"Don't talk about it. We probably couldn't win the pennant without Robby, so don't talk about it."
