Whenever he gives us something worthy of noting, we will be quoting Buck Showalter. Last night, while referring to Torii Hunter’s 3 run HR in the top of the 8th that tied the game, Buck dropped the following pearl of wisdom…
This is part of playing in the American League. There are some big, strong, hairy guys here who can hit it where the grass doesn’t grow. That’s part of playing in this division. We’ve got some big guys, too, but maybe not as hairy.
Honestly, the quote feels even better than the win. And the win feels REAL good.
