"If he says he did whatever he did, he did whatever he did."

[Mike Downey]

In comes a new pitcher and up comes Carlos Quentin.

One pitch and over the left-field fence it goes.

"Did you throw him a fastball?" Texas pitcher C.J. Wilson is asked.

"I threw him a meatball," Wilson snaps.

A question to Quentin then results in the year's greatest quotation.

Wilson says he threw you a meatball, Quentin is told.

"If he says he did whatever he did, he did whatever he did," Quentin says.

Oh, man, I love that. Quentin gets a meatball question and hits that out of the park. His answer is half-Stanford grad, half-Yogi Berra.

This is a fun team to be around. You ask Swisher if he was happy to see Quentin hit that home run.

No, he says.

"I wanted to hit the home run," Swisher says.

Somebody will twist this into a story next. "Swisher lashes out at teammate" or something like that.
