"All the Mets road wins against the Dodgers this year have come at Dodger Stadium."
"He's (Bruce Sutter) is going to be out of action for the rest of his career."
"Now up to bat for the Mets is Gary Cooper."
"Hello everybody. Welcome to Kiner's Corner. This is...uh, I'm...uh."
"If Casey Stengel were alive today he'd be spinning in his grave."
"Cadillacs are down at the end of the bat."
"Two-thirds of the earth is covered by water. The other third is covered by Garry Maddox."
