The funniest moments usually come during the fan question and answer portion of the programs. Here are my top moments from this year's Caravan.
Question for Manager Jim Leyland: "Skip would you consider coming over sometime for a beer?"
Leyland: "If we don't win, I'll come over for a lot of them."
Question for Max Scherzer: "Do you have any superstitions?"
Scherzer: I do, but I don't like talking about them. I'm superstitious about my superstitions. I can tell you that if I have a winning streak, I wear my shorts on backwards until I lose."
A little too much info there, Max.
Question for Torii Hunter : "Do you like to golf?"
Hunter: "I'm not that good. I'm more like Tiger Hood."
Phil Coke telling the story of when he struck out Miguel Cabrera.
Coke: "We were talking about hitting in the clubhouse one day and Miggy asked me if I ever faced him. I said that I did as a rookie.
"What I do, hit home run?"
"No Miggy, no home run."
"Double for sure."
"No Papi, no double either."
"You walk me like a sissy?"
"No, I didn't walk you."
"What I do then?"
"I struck you out on a back-foot slider."
"Ahhh, no wonder, I no remember my at bats against horse(bleep) pitchers."
Cabrera wondered why Alex Avila didn't work out with him this off-season in Miami like years past.
Avila: He won the MVP and Triple Crown last year, there's not a whole lot more I can teach him."
A little girl on her family meeting Phil Coke in spring training last March:
"We kind of had a weird experience with him."
Welcome to our world young lady!
