Memes of Ma & Pa Yankee

It’s time. Those truths broadcast into existence by WCBS Yankee radio announcers John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman deserve to be documented here, and here’s a start:

Heard today [again!]:
“You can’t predict baseball.” -Sterling
“It always starts with a walk.” -Sterling

Heard prior to today [and, to be sure, again soon- You could bet on it, but not on baseball!]
“There was no such thing as an oblique. Players got a pain in their side.” -Waldman

Oh, today’s game? What about it? (15-0 Yankees over Mets at the new Stadium, gaining back a game as Boston dropped one 11-5 to the Phillies, despite pitcher Josh Beckett’s self-help homer.)

    I wonder if Beckett wishes he were in the National League so he could bat. Our Sabathia is good with the bat, too. Speaking of pitchers at bat, I never seem to tire of marveling how quickly Pedro Martinez stopped hitting batters when he went to bat for the National League Mets! (Or, did he just hit Yanks?!)
