Wow, that's way more than 10 questions. Don't know why they call it that. Some fun snippets include:

DL: Number of pitchers in baseball you look at and say that guy is just flatly better than I am.
MB: Just about every one.
DL: What's the matter with you? You're one of those self-deprecating guys.
MB: I don't like putting that on me though, y'know. Just been fooling a lot of people.
DL: You were 19-12 last year with an ERA of 3 and a half!!
MB: Team scored me a lot of runs
DL: With an ERA of 3 and a half! You had an ERA of 3 and a half!
MB: We had such a big lead the other team just gives up, it seems like.
DL: All right, let's do it this way. Why were you such a bum for losing 12 times?
MB: That's better, that's better.

DL: The worst dresser on our team is blank.
MB: Now or past?
DL: Go ahead, both
MB: Jose Canseco in the past and now, Matt Ginter
DL: What was Canseco wearing? Was he wearing outlandish mustard-colored suits?
MB: Just like skin-tight clothes. If he finds out about this, don't tell him it's me.

DL: The one guy in sports that needs to shut up is blank.
MB: Sammy Sosa
DL: Really. Why's that?
MB: Because he's always talking about himself.
