    Marty Brennemanisms

    What are some Marty Brennemanisms besides the obvious, "This one belongs to the Reds!" "Titanic Struggle" is another phrase of his that he uses a lot. What other phrases does he use from time to time that you like?

    Not a Marty-ism, but I did enjoy Thom's analysis of the Chicago Cubs front office "spending like drunken sailors" during the past offseason.

    My Top Five Marty-isms:

    "Put a star by that one!"

    "Oh, Momma, did he ever unload on that bad boy!"

    "You know that's right..."

    "It never fails to amaze me..."

    "Soto sets, winds, and fires..."

    Lenny Harris has picked up a bat and is working his way out to the on deck circle ... ostensibly to pinch hit.

    These aren't necessarily one I like, but here are a few more that I remember Marty saying.

    Player X with a three run Johnson

    Player X with No I dea out there (Marty puts emphasis on the I).

    Just how we like it.

    There's a drive to deep left field, and the Dodgers lead 1-0. (Milton must have been pitching )

    Ken Griffey Jr in Center field, lining up to his right in left field is Adam Dunn, to his left in right field is Ryan Freel.

    This one is quickly turning into a "good old-fashioned butt whipping."

    I've always liked it when he uses the Lee May quote, "That's just like we like it."

    He'll also give you one of these when expresssing his extreme disdain for a flaw in someone's fundamentals, "Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm."
