Wildcard Wednesday: “They throw Winfield out at second — and he’s safe.”

Happy Wednesday! If you’re looking for a little extra boost to get you through the day, these kitten photos and quotes from broadcaster Jerry Coleman should do the trick…

“I’m Johnny Grubb. No I’m not… this is Jerry Coleman.

“With one out in the first, Dave Roberts looks a lot better than the last time he faced the Padres.”

“The first pitch to Tucker Ashford is grounded into left field. No, wait a minute. It’s ball one, low and outside.”

“Next up is Fernando Gonzalez, who is not playing tonight.”

“Mike Caldwell, the Padres’ right-handed southpaw, will pitch tonight.”

“At the end of six innings of play, it’s Montreal 5, Expos 3.”

“And Kansas is at Chicago tonight or is it Chicago at Kansas City? Well, no matter as Kansas leads in the eighth four-to-four.”

“Grubb goes back, back! He’s under the warning track!”

“He slides into second with a stand up double.”

“If (Pete) Rose’s streak was still intact, with that single to left, the fans would be throwing babies out of the upper deck.”

“McCovey swings and misses, and it’s fouled back.”

“Rich Folkers is throwing up in the bullpen.”

“There’s someone warming up in the bullpen, but he’s obscured by his number.”

“Willie Davis is not as young as he used to be.”

“Winfield goes back to the wall, he hits his head on the wall and it rolls off! It’s rolling all the way back to second base. This is a terrible thing for the Padres.”

“Our hats are off to drug abusers everywhere.”

Just in case those things aren’t enough, here is a recording left on the voice mail of San Francisco-area reporter Mychael Urban by Giants pitcher Barry Zito. Highly entertaining.
