Giancarlo Stanton Smitten with L.A.?

+
An MLB source who has spent time with Giancarlo Stanton this offseason said he seems increasingly smitten with the Dodgers and the Hollywood lifestyle and part-time owner Magic Johnson and has buddied up with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp. The Dodgers are the front-runner to land him when he becomes a free agent after 2016. The Marlins very likely would consider dealing him next winter if he rejects an expected multiyear offer in the coming months.

Help JFK's Quote of the Day:

17

Hello, I’m jrockies and a member of Purple Row. Every day I post a baseball related quote to the site noted as "JFK’s Quote of the Day." I have, however, come up with a problem. Most of the quotes I have are from former players/coaches (Berra, Mayes, Hornsby, Peter Uueberroth, etc.) or older authors and sports writers (Boswell, Russell Baker, Kahn, etc.) and I don’t have many from players and writers of today’s period. As an attempt to build my list of quotes I have decided to ask the different baseball communities around SBNation to help me out. I don’t get to read local articles for non-Denver teams very often and I know that players have said something wise/funny/absurd that should be remembered somewhere ("These are thin mints. I put them in the freezer. My favorites. So good." ~Reds outfielder Adam Dunn, on the Girl Scout cookies he keeps in his locker) So here is the challenge: In the comments section post your all-time favorite baseball quotes (I don’t have all of them) and your favorite quotes you’ve heard from around the league in recent years. For the next two weeks I will post my quote of the day in the comments here. Thanks, jrockies JFK
