Quotable quotes from WSBA fete (excerpt)

 

Quoting the WSBA banquet guests:

 

"I don't see any strike threat (to delay the upcoming baseball season). The players don't want a strike and the owners don't either. From a strictly baseball standpoint, I don't anticipate any problems in getting spring training started on time. But if there is a strike, I'm sure the Phillies players will work out on their own. We're all anxious to get back on the winning track this season." – Phillies Manager Dallas Green

"Stay healthy – that's all we have to do to win next season. With the young team the Phillies have, we don't have to do anything else, just stay healthy. And maybe add some pitching. Nobody, but nobody, ever has enough pitching." – Phillies first baseman Pete Rose
