Truly great stuff. I wanted to paste my favorite line but found about four that I laughed out loud on. So here's one: "It's an honor to be part of this team," said catcher Benito Santiago, picked up from the San Francisco Giants as insurance in case catchers Jorge Posada, Ivan Rodriguez, and Mike Piazza all go down with injuries.

While we are on the subject of New York baseball humor, the Village Voice has this on Mo Rocca's appearence at the New York Chapter Baseball Writers Association of America awards dinner. (Scroll down.) I like the Mo Vaughn joke, but the best is the Yankees' line: "I'm sorry if I don't have my funniest material tonight," said Rocca. "Ruben Rivera stole my best jokes."
