Scott: After three games off, it took all of three pitches to restore Larry’s bitterness.
LA: And it’s easy to play, Scott, even if you are a little bitter!
LA: The “Natitude” works here in the ballpark, but you don’t see much Nats apparel elsewhere.
Scott: How do you know? Have you been trolling for Nats gear? Being the intrepid reporter that you are?
LA: I just like to keep people informed.
Scott: That game on the scoreboard says “IR” as opposed to the “UR” for the previous game that was suspended. What do you suppose “IR” means?
Scott: Get out your remote! Maybe interesting rain!
LA: Maybe “UR” is under rain.
Scott: Interrupted by rain.
LA: Uninterrupted rain? Infinite rain?
LA: Howard put a little extra coal in that engine and motored down to first to beat it out.
Scott: He’s listed as day-to-day, but everybody is pretty much day-to-day at this time of year.
LA: Especially in this booth.
Scott: Vance Worley will be facing the Phils tomorrow night–
Scott: Versus Jerome Williams — Jerominal!
Scott: Did you ever get tossed from a game, as a coach?
Scott: As a player?
LA: Yeah. For throwing at a guy.
Scott: Hard to believe you would be that way. You’re so mild-mannered.
LA: Somebody take these stats down to [Pirates pitcher] Justin Wilson that show Freddie Galvis hasn’t even attempted a steal this year! Stop throwing over!
Scott: Phanatic is laying down there, banging his head on the dugout.
Scott: Gregory Polanco is playing five feet from the wall in right.
LA: Pittsburgh is playing “no home runs.”
LA: I walked (my dog) Lizzy for 20 minutes today. My limit is usually 10, but I gutted it out.
Scott: We all appreciate your intestinal fortitude.
LA: If I’d have known about a comeback player of the year award, I would have had more bad years.
Scott: Bastardo’s need for rubbing up a baseball is bordering on OCD, don’t you think?
Scott: Who was calling for thunderstorms?
LA: Channel 101.
Scott: What’s channel 101?
LA: I don’t know, but they have weather.
LA: There’s something about this dirt here [at Oakland]. It looks dirtier than other dirt.
Scott: That sounded like a serious clunk on that foul ball.
LA: Sounded like it hit Sarge’s glove!
