2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009

After the 2003 season, Jim Tracy came up with this assessment of the Dodgers: "We didn't fail. We just didn't succeed as much as we'd have liked." And so began the collection of Dodger quotes. If you hear or read a good one, please submit it.

 


Gas is up and so am I.

- Manny Ramirez
Warning Dodger fans that he won't be back

I'm Cal Ripken.

- Manny Ramirez
Feeling like a white guy

- Chan Ho Park
On Frank McCourt's impromptu announcement
about acquiring Manny Ramirez

My last win was with the Dodgers four years ago Mother's Day. Wins are like the Olympics for me, I guess.

On his big day
7/6/08


We have to try to stay as consistent as we can... which I think we've done a pretty good job of lately.

- James Loney
On how the Dodgers have consistently not scored runs
6/16/08


Are they going to eat it [the All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion] every night? No, because they don't come every night. If they come twice a month or two times a month I think it's great.

- Steve Shiffman (VP Ticket Sales)
In need of a lesson on redundancy or redundancy
6/10/08


Would it help him more if he could play at a level he could handle better? Probably.

Channeling Jim Tracy while admitting that
Chin-lung Hu can't handle the major leagues
6/10/08


It's not a setback, it's just a set aside.

- Joe Torre
On Jason Schmidt's latest non-setback
6/8/08


My friends will let me know if they see something on a blog or on DodgerBlues. They're big fans of that. I think those guys are hilarious.

- Joe Beimel
Acting like he doesn't spend his nights in the Fan Forum
6/3/08


When your team scores one run, it's common sense that you have to hold the other team to no runs.

- Hiroki Kuroda
Reinforcing the stereotype that Asians are
good at math, and that the Dodger bullpen sucks
5/28/08


But the Dodgers score to tie it up and after four and a half the cubs lead 2-1.

- Charley Steiner
Drinking in the booth with Rick
5/27/08


I lost my power, I suck, I should retire.

- Andruw Jones
Finally hitting a home run
5/10/08


[Takashi Saito's] eyes were at half mast.

- Joe Torre
Describing his Japanese closer
5/10/08


You play for the team, you don't play for the fans.

- Andruw Jones
Really earning some points
5/10/08


A Dodger uniform just doesn't look good with a cummerbund.

- George Lopez
On Andruw Jones' weight
5/8/08


I feel fine, I want to pitch. I want to be out there and throwing.

- Esteban Loaiza
Right before being put on the DL
5/8/08


And Loney hits a high fly ball to deep right field, Hawpe goes to the ball and it is... caught... ... No, it's gone!

- Charley Steiner
Watching the game... No, picking his nose!
5/4/08


It's in a safe place. It's a memento, but I can't wear it because I'm too fat, my fingers got too fat.

On his 1988 World Series ring
4/22/08


With the long flight [after Tuesday night's game], we'll give him a blow and get back and hope he's OK tomorrow.

Clearly running out of ways to get Jones out of his slump
4/22/08


You can't hit without your hands.

Making a push to become the team's next batting coach

I'm an Internet god.

After fans voted for a Beimel bobblehead
4/19/08


The chance to be a general manager in major-league baseball and for a franchise as storied as this one, probably as storied as the Giants, is great.

- Ned Colletti
Leaving me completely fucking speechless
4/14/08


We'll see when the season is over in September or August.

- Andruw Jones
Knowing the Dodgers will be eliminated earlier than ever
4/13/08


He [Nomar Garciaparra] could go 0-for-10 in rehab and it wouldn't mean anything.

- Joe Torre
Knowing that Nomar will go 0-for-20
when he returns to the Dodgers
4/13/08


I think it's weighing heavily on him.

- Ned Colletti
Not saying whether he's talking about Andruw Jones'
batting slump or his extra pounds

I'm not really concerned yet. When July comes and if I'm still struggling, that's when I'll be really worried.

The people in New York have no idea what they're doing.

- Larry Bowa
Using the word 'people' but desperately wanting to
say 'the cocksuckers who run Major League Baseball'

You’ve got guys who tested positive for steroids and admitted they took them—no suspensions. They’re still playing.

4/2/08


We are higher that the Grand Canyon.

- Charley Steiner
Finally explaining his and RIck Monday's job performance
3/30/08


Not that managing in the American League is easy, but this is certainly different. I'll have to have somebody poke me in the rear end when I have a pitcher that's going to hit.

- Joe Torre
Revealing why Don Mattingly resigned
3/23/08


Until the day I die, I will be pulling for Ned Colletti.

I think we'll be playing a lot of low-scoring games this year. We're going to have to rely on one or two runs being enough.

It was a lot looser last year. I don't want to say it's strict now because it's not.

I just left my family that I've been with for four months and I probably won't see them for three weeks, so today's not such a great day.

Already in mid-season form
2/21/08


He said something about my hair but didn't tell me what to do.

On Joe Torre's "no girly boys" rule
2/17/08


He's not a guy who says hello.

- Matt Kemp
On why Jeff Kent is so loved
2/17/08


I thought Schmidt was really easy on the eyes.

- Joe Torre
On the sexiness of a 55-mph fastball
2/17/08


I know there are more bodies than positions. I had a conversation with Juan. He was curious.

- Joe Torre
Potentially finding a new role for Pierre
1/30/08


Elisabeth Shue has a locker right next to me. I'm really excited.

- Mike Lieberthal
Hoping his wife doesn't read MLB.com
1/26/08


I told him one position he'll probably play more of is third base, but I also said with his ability to play other positions, he can be really valuable in a lot of ways. He understood what I was saying.

On how Jason Schmidt's surgery and rehab were/are
both complicated, that he might not be able to make
Opening Day, and he doesn't even know when he might
be able to pitch... and how its a good thing
1/16/08


It's not general manager Ned Colletti's style to sign contract extensions that limit flexibility and put the club at unnecessary risk in the event of an injury.

- Ken Gurnick
Proving you don't need to actually know anything
about a team to be a beat reporter for MLB.com
1/9/08
