LA: “We’re gonna kill ‘um! We’re gonna kill ‘um!”

Did you know L.A. was once traded for Jeff Bagwell? Sure, its often considered one of the “worst trades ever,” but it definitely happened.
“I don’t care to see anybody go to jail or get something put on their resume that they’re convicted of something, but am I going to lose any sleep over him being convicted of obstruction of justice? Not at all.”
–Larry Andersen on Barry Bonds
“Somebody ought to put one in his neck.”
–Larry Andersen on Jose Reyes’ celebratory dancing
Scott Franzke: (Giggling)
LA: (Waking up, clearly asleep on air) “…wha…?”
Franzke: “Ah, nothin’.”
“I AM NOT AN AN-NEE-MALL!!”
