Quote of the Day

For all of the overkill, I did like some of the pregame stuff from yesterday's Yankee game, especially bringing in the sons of Mickey Mantle and Billy Martin to represent their fathers. Quote from Billy Martin, Jr., when asked about whether he harbored any ill will towards George Steinbrenner for firing his old man so often:
Mr. Steinbrenner fired my father five times, but he also hired him five times. I am the only Martin that hasn’t been fired by the Yankees. I did an internship in 1986.
Mr. Martin Jr. was then fired.
