Good afternoon fellow sox fans. Just wanted to say hello:D:. I'm a long time lingerer here at WSI, but this is my first post. I look forward to talking White Sox baseball with all of you. I was wondering if any of you saw the movie Major League on Spike tv Sunday. Do you think its possible that a movie like this could motivate our Sox? They certainly need some type of fire lit under them.
Any thoughts?

Any thoughts?"You no help me now, I say F*** YOU JOE BOO! I do it myself!"

"Willie Mays Hayes is Black Hammer. Jesse 'The Body' Ventura is White Lightning."

"You trying' to say that Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball?"

"Women. You can't live without 'em, and they can't pee standing up."

(Had to get in Major League 2 also.)

Well, we have a cheap owner who once wanted to move the team to FLorida for skyboxes, and we have a Cuban player now...

And Tom Berenger = Sandy Alomar
And Omar Epps = Willie Harris
And Charlie Sheen = Billy Koch, but minus the turnaround

Maybe the sox can peel a piece of Jerry's clothing every game they lose, if they lose the division they see him naked; kind of the opposite in the first Major League. Maybe this could motivate them.

Maybe you should reverse that around. He starts naked, then with every win they get to cover him up more and more.

That is my ex-girlfriend over there, and who is that guy she's with?
-You want me to kick his ass?

I thought you didn't have any high-priced talent on this team?
-Forgot about Dorn because he's only high-priced.

There's Jake Taylor
-He was an All-Star at Boston wasn't he
Yeah
-I wish we had him 2 years ago
We did.
-4 years ago then.

One of my favorite movies of all time.

My favorite Major League quote is either:
A) "All we got was one god damn hit" "you cant say god damn on the radio" "o no one is listening anyway."
B) "Ricky has added the terminator to go along with his fastball, the eliminator" "I heard that" "Dynamite drop in monty, that broadcasting school has really paid off"

Guy makes an awesome diving catch in left center.
"Hit...caught..."

It was Omar Epps in Major League II. Snipes, and the original, were funnier. I never even bothered to see the third one.

"Cerano is going to need a rocket up his ass to catch that one"

"Swung on and belted to South America"

2 lines i like to use when the sox hit a bomb, but for the first line i use the appropriate outfielders name :)

2 of the greatest movies ever.

I love when Taylor is talking to the guy from the A's while he's catching. The guy pops the ball up 5 feet in front of the plate, and Taylor says, "Oh...I don't think it's got the distance." I use that line all the time.

I've always thought that Lou Brown had the best lines in the movie.

"How would you like to manage the Cleveland Indians?"

"Oh, I dunno... Listen, I got a guy on the other line about some white-walls, I'll talk to ya later."


"Forget about the curveball Ricky, give 'em the heater!"


also:

(After calling for 2 straight fastballs) "Well, **** all these pitches to choose from. Lets try something different this time." (calls for another fast ball)

:smile: :D: :)

I think the whole point is to NOT see JR in his birthday suit. *shudder*

I think if they peeled a piece off every time they lost that would be enough motivation to win every single game the rest of the year...

<Jose Valentin batting against a lefty>

:hawk
"Jose's 0 for the century against this guy... but he does have several foul tips."


Or when Ozzie brought in Politte (accidentally) to face a lefty instead of Marte...

:hawk
"Obviously Ozzie's thinking..... I don't know what the hell he's thinking!!"


Or Ozzie the manager in the clubhouse today....

:ozzie
"OK, we won yesterday. If we win today that's two in a row. If we win tomorrow that's called a 'winning streak'... it has happened before."

Then you missed out on a classic in Major League: Back to the Minors. It's got Pedro Cerrano, Roger Dorn (as a GM), and Harry Doyle returning, along with newcomers Jefferson D'Arcy from Married With Children and that guy from Quantum Leap. Throughout the whole movie you're waiting for Al to come in with Ziggy and make the manager leap. Ok, so the movie's not great, but I'll watch any movie with a good amount of Bob Uecker in it.

The guy from Quantum Leap is Scott Bakula.

Out of the trilogy, the 3rd was the worst one by far. I'm still trying to figure out how Pedro and that japanese guy (MARBLES!) ended up on the TWINS minor league team?!? Wasn't the catcher from the 2nd movie there also?

Basically, it didn't tie in with the other 2 movies at all...

I know about Mr. Bakula - I just felt that Gus Cantrell didn't need another name to tie him down. Yes it was bad, but the Uecker announcing was still the highlight of the movie.

After a close play at the plate:
"Poetry. That play was pure poetry.
Wadsworth. Longfellow. Maya Angelou. This Buzz ballclub.
What do they all have in common? Poetry.

And I have to ask my collegue in the booth, have you ever seen a sunset more beautiful than that play at the plate? ... Speachless! My collegue is speachless ladies and gentlemen."

Pedro is also in those All State insurance commericials. That's what happens when you can't hit a curve ball.

How can they be laying off of pitches that close?

How's your wife and my kids?

Clue Haywood leads the league in most offensvie categories, including nosehairs.
Yeah - when that guy sneezes he looks like a party favor.

Uh Oh Rexie - I don't think that one's got the distance

I've never heard of half these guys, and the ones I know are way past their prime.
Most of these guys never had a prime.
This one is dead?
So cross him off the list then.

This guy threw at his son in the father-son game.

It was out of reach - what did you want me to do? Dive for it?
Roger, it could have meant the game!
Oh come on cut the rah rah **** Taylor! Year after this I go free agent. Plus me and my agent got a couple of plans for life after baseball. So I am not about to risk major injury or displace this property for a collection of stiffs!
Ya know Dorn, I liked you so much better when you were just a ballplayer. If you wanna be an interior decorator now that's none of my business. But some of us still need this team. Now you listen to me! This is my last shot at a winner and for some of the younger guys it could be their only shot. I don't know what happened to you. But if you ever, ever tank another play like you did today, i'm gonna cut your nuts off and stuff em down your ****in throat!

By far and away my favorite baseball movie!

Well, you may run like Mays but you hit like s***.

A lot of new Indian faces this year, and I am sure we will have some names to go along with those faces before their first at-bat."

"We don't know where Hayes played last year, but I'm sure he did a hell of a job."
