? Dick Williams. Boston Red Sox manager, asked what is the difference between last year's Red Sox and this season's: "The Detroit Tigers."

? Weeb Ewbank, New York Jets coach, when Lee White, his No. 1 draft pick, demanded not only $80,000 but another $20,000 if he makes the 40-man squad: "You'd think that for $80,000 it's reasonable to expect a man will make the squad."

? Lee Trevino, U.S. Open winner, explaining why he may sponsor Arnold Salinas, a Dallas amateur, on the pro tour next year: "Arnold is the greatest putter in the world. He's better than I am—and I'm the best."
