Found this neat little collection over at the Hardball Times.
Whenever he opens his mouth, people cringe. While he has been a model of decorum (save his episode in Toronto) he is viewed as insincere if not outright deceptive:
"I’ve always said to everybody that Seattle is my first choice."
"I wanted to be a Met. I’ve always wanted to be a Met, I’ve been a Met fan since I was a kid. And I would’ve played there for less money and less years and they know that."
"I want to be remembered as a Texas Ranger."
"You're asking me what my sincere feeling is. I want to 100 percent stay in New York. Period. That's it. I don't know how many ways I can say it."
"I want to be here. I want to stay here."
"I want to be in New York. This is the place I want to finish my career. That's it.”
"We had options and we all know that, but I want to be in New York. That's it."
"I've always said it: I love New York, for me, as a player, to come full circle in New York, it's the most comfortable I've felt."
