Scott: You’ve never been wrong, Larry.

Scott: What color would you call the lettering on the D-backs’ uniforms?
LA: Ecru…
Scott: What?
LA: Ecru.
Scott: I dare you to spell it.
LA: E-C-R-U.
Scott: I thought that was an animal.
LA: It’s another word for beige.

Scott: The official color of the D-backs’ jersey lettering is Sonoran sand.
LA: Like Sonora Desert. Or is it the Sahara Desert?
Scott: I think it’s a city.

Scott: The throw to first sails into the camera well on the side of the dugout.
LA: Nearly over the head of the Phanatic on top of the dugout.

Scott: The Brewers are 31 games over .500 at home, and 10 games games under on the road.

Scott: The Phanatic has just milked a cow. And it’s chocolate milk.
LA: Only the Phanatic can do that.

Scott: When they asked you on the Daily News Live what the second best mascot is, you said, “The Phanatic.” Did you misunderstand the question?
LA: Just settin’ up the punch line.
Scott: Well when they asked you what the best mascot is, you said, “The Phanatic.”
LA: That way, there’s no close second.
Scott: I like how you backed yourself into a Phanatic compliment.

Scott: Roberts has tattoos all up and down both arms.
LA: Likes the ink. That way he doesn’t have to go out and buy fancy shirts.

Scott: Do you know you have a peanut shell on your eyelid?
LA: No.
Scott: That’s gotta hurt. The whole peanut shell– what do you do–
LA: Pinched on my eyelids. Yeah, gotta pinch it.
Scott: Squeeze it open just a little bit. You gotta pinch your eyelid– squeeze it open just a little bit, then release. That can’t be good for your eyes.
LA: Salt’s never good in your eyes.

Scott: There’s the first ball. Way to jinx him, Larry.
LA: Is it my fault?
Scott: So many things, Larry, are your fault. We’re not gonna put this one at your doorstep.
LA: The more I’m lookin’ at it, the more I’m thinkin’ it is my fault.

Scott: Did you hear what Nijer Morgan said? “Since there’s nobody to really chase in our division, let’s go chase Philly.”
LA: He needs to put a button on it.

Scott: Mayberry now has 7 homers in 73 at-bats.
LA: That’s even better than the Phanatic.
Scott: You’re just saying that because he’s here.
LA: What a load.
Scott: He’s starting to break headsets, and everything else. Oh my goodness, I don’t think that table’s going to hold you.
Scott: Wow, he really doesn’t smell very good, does he? What was he doing in here?
LA: Well you are his favorite broadcaster, ya know?

JJ: You’re not feeling a home run for David Herndon here, in the home run payoff inning?
LA: I gotta be honest, I’m not thinkin’.
JJ: After taking a look at that swing, I think you’re right.
LA: As I said, I’m not thinking, which isn’t far from the truth. But I’m thinking not, also, about David Herndon.
JJ: Swing and a miss, and Larry Herndon is exactly right. Haha, how ’bout that — Larry Herndon.
LA: That swing was a lot like mine, wasn’t it?

Scott: What have you been doing for the last three hours [during the rain delay]?

Scott: Nobody’s happier than Michael Stutes yesterday, seeing Michael Schwimer get called up to the big leagues. He no longer has to carry the pink backpack and long, feathered boa out to the bullpen.

LA: Looks like Stutes picked off two people down there. Chris Young and Jeff Nelson, the umpire. Not sure that Bill Welke got that call right, looking at the replay.
Scott: Or Jeff Nelson? You just called him Jeff Nelson two seconds ago.
LA: Hey, I’ve had a tough paper route this week, okay?

LA: Oh, boy. Better hit the censor button.
Scott: If you think we’re turning that mic on, you’ve got to be kidding. I don’t even think this is legal. Can Shane Victorino be on the air right now during a suspension?
LA: I think so. Ricky Bottalico did it once. See it’s not that easy, Shane. How are you enjoying your time off?
Shane: It’s awful. I’m miserable right now.
Scott: In general, you’re kind of a low-energy guy, so I bet you can sit around and relax.
LA: I don’t think you had a choice. I think they kicked you out of the clubhouse.
Scott: That centerfielder by the way, he’s got it nailed down tonight.
Shane: He’s actually pretty good. That’s why I need to go talk to Ruben Amaro [about my contract extension]. Yeah go ahead Mayberry, hit another homer.

Scott: If this contestant wins $10,000, he should have us over for steaks on his grill.

Scott: They must love that Ian Desmond bobble head doll giveaway.

Scott: Phillies fans are greeting Ryan Zimmerman with lots of boos after last night’s walk-off grand slam.

LA: His shirt looked like he just pulled it out of his wallet. I said, “What did you do, iron it with a rock?” and then he showed me his other shirt with ice cream all down the front. Could you bring in one of Gus’s bibs tomorrow, please?

JJ: What’s taking Angel Pagan so long to get out of the dugout?

LA: I thought [the earthquake] was just a gust of wind.
Scott: I thought it was just Gus.
LA: I thought the Nationals were playing a day game and Todd Coffey was running in from the bullpen.

LA: During an earthquake, you always want to stay above ground. That way you’ll feel it less.
Scott: Larry, at your age, staying above ground is always a good thing. Not to mention the way you’ve treated yourself over the years.
