? George Frazier, Chicago Cubs reliever: "Long relief is like being a plumber. Some days it's O.K., but when 30 septic tanks back up, it's no fun."

? Ralph Garr, the National League batting champion in 1974, asked what kind of a hitter he was when he was in the big leagues: "I was a ball hitter. If I saw the ball, I hit it. If I didn't see it, I didn't hit it."

? Jerry Reinsdorf, Chicago White Sox co-owner, disgruntled by his team's in-and-out play so far this season: "Maybe we have to shock the club by eliminating somebody who thinks he's a frontliner. Send him down to Buffalo. Or Pittsburgh."
