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.

They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.  And also, my sister got a severe head injury and a sprained neck while doing a stunt. That's more injured than i've seen a basketball player get.
