Baseball's playoffs always bring out some wacky words and quirky quotes - usually inspired by the heat of competition or being hit one too many times by a high, inside fastball.

Baseball's playoffs always bring out some wacky words and quirky quotes - usually inspired by the heat of competition or being hit one too many times by a high, inside fastball. Here's a look at some of the quotes from this year's playoffs and years past.

1 "It's a dream come true. You dream as a kid to play in the World Series, and I get to throw the first pitch of Game 1 this year. I can't wait." - Jarod Washburn of the Anaheim Angels.

1"You win a few, you lose a few. Some get rained out. But you got to dress for all of them." - Satchel Paige.

1"The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime." - Babe Ruth.

1"Little League is great because it keeps parents off the streets." - Yogi Berra.

1"The best possible thing in baseball is winning the World Series. The second best thing is losing the World Series." - Tommy Lasorda.

1"It was a totally different feeling. I was excited. I was nervous all in one. The closest thing that compares is when I was a little kid and my mom would take me to Toys 'R' Us when you can pick out anything you want. I was like a little kid in a candy store. It was awesome." - Cleveland Indians' pitcher, C.C. Sabathia, after he won a playoff game against the Seattle Mariners.

1"All pitchers are cry babies." - Yogi Berra.

1"I think that the attitude or the impression that people have of New York has changed a little bit, but I don't think that the attitude toward the New York Yankees is going to change. People are still going to love to hate the Yankees." - Derek Jeter.

    No, it's not really a sport, to be honest. It's an activity which is quite sexist in my eyes.
