Best quote I've seen, maybe ever

From the Nationals Journal, where my man Chico (the Writer) is determined to go out strong. He had an excellent story in today's fishwrap and had this outstanding tidbit in his online report on The Phenom's first workout of the spring.

Seems Mr. Strasburg has picked up the nickname "Jesus." Probably offends some but I love it and here's why (this is the part I lifted):

Why Jesus? "'Cause what's the first thing you say when you see him pitch?" centerfielder Nyjer Morgan said, excited just to answer his own question. "Jeee-sus!"

So now Morgan brings his speed to the offense AND the defense AND he's the best quote on the team.

Oh, and I can't wait to see Jeeee-sus pitch.

We already knew Morgan was the best quote on the team. Tony Plush, man. What else would you expect?

He's raised the level of his game. He's off to a great start this spring.

The last time we had a pitcher called Jesus, Bowden was praying for his buttocks and his family. I think this is an improvement, no?

Damn you. I'd put that abcess out of my mind. Now I'm sure to have nightmares again.
Wasn't he the one who gave up that long home run to the great Brooks Conrad?
I suspect the current Jesus will be handle the likes of ol' Brooks.

If the name sticks, does he have to pay Flores for it?

That's a good quote but far from the best ever. Off the top of my head I'd go with "Peter Angelos can suck it and like it".

I'd have to Google the exact quote from Frank Robinson during the Angels series that got nasty way back when: "I don't get intimidated, I'm the intimidator."

Stan Kasten: "I'm going to be visiting all of the embassies in an effort to bring in foreign talent." -- (far from an exact quote)

Just convinced the wife that a day trip to Viera on the way home from Disney next week would be good for the kids. From here on out, I'll be thinking of it as a "Come to Jesus" meeting.
