    Tony Womack-isms

    Oh that wacky Tony Womack

    -"People just keep throwing stats in your face - like, this guy has a better on-base percentage. Who cares about on-base percentage? It's a matter of where you go at the end of the year. I haven't been home after the end of the year in five out of the last seven years, and I don't plan on going this year."

    -"The Yankees took the year away from me, basically. That's how I felt. They took the year away, and it could have been done differently. I just had to deal with it. I dealt with it, and I'm here now and I'm smiling every day."

    -"Speed kills. You can't teach it."

    -"The only thing that makes me mad is it messes up my baseball card,"

    -"The intangibles never show up in the stats."

    -People say I don't have a good on-base percentage. But when I get on, a lot of things happen. There are no stats for that."

    Anthony (Long Island): Congratulations on getting through the whole chat without mentioning Tony Womack. Well done.

    In my experience, people who refer to themselves in the third person always prove to be the most inherently delightful folk. See also: Rickey Henderson, Bobby Brown, Manny Ramirez, P. Diddy,
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Tony, did you just join Redszone??

    All I have to say to that username is it has to be someone that's already on here or a new person that is very in touch with this board the past several months.

    Classic...

    These players are also World Series champions:

    Geoff Blum
    Chris Widger
    Luis Vizcaino
    Pokey Reese
    Chad Fox
    Benji Gil
    Orlando Palmeiro
    Ramon Ortiz
    David Dellucci
    Midre Cummings
    Troy Brohawn

    You want the Reds to sign them, too? I hear Pokey Reese is available.

    BTW - Tony Womack helped his team win a championship by putting up this line in the World Series:

    Code:
    G  AB  R  H 2B 3B HR RBI BB SO   BA    OBP   SLG  SB 
    7  32  3  8  3  0  0   3  1  7  .250  .294  .344  1
    "Speed Kills," huh? Then how come speedy Tony Womack only stole one base in a 7-game series? And if speed helps you score runs, why did Womack only score three times in the most important series of his career? He struck out more than twice as often as he scored, and he only walked once.

    Nice work, Tony! Way to earn that championship!

    The changes were made because he failed to do anything to help the team win.
