Tough loss tonight. Nine innings, six hits, five runs, three walks, eight strikeouts and one big mistake. I was talking to one of the scouts, the guy in the suspenders. He's from the Phillies. He was curious about your college career. I made up a few stories.
That's great, Dad.
I'm trying to help here, hotshot. Most important thing in your life, you don't want my help? Not interested?
I got some place to be! [he runs away]
Chasing some Shore Road princess who's trying to get Daddy's attention by screwing the lawn boy.
You don't understand...
Understand what? Being broke? I understand!
Understand what? Doing something you love? I understand! I love standing on that mound with a baseball in my hand... Staring at a guy holdin' a club *60* feet away... KNOWING... that he can't touch me... It is the only place in the world that I feel powerful...
Why are you so scared?
Scared of what?
Of everything! Success? Love? You say you love getting on that mound and playing baseball! Why would you ever settle for cutting grass?
[angry at the umpire at the Hyannis game] Does his wife know he's screwin us?
All right, let's not have a meltdown...
Yeah, I don't think he appreciates me fartin' in his face all night... First it was accidental, now I'm tryin' to make him cry... and I'm pretty sure I just poo-pooed in my panties...
