"We're going to do a draft today, and these don't always go well. We enjoy them, but they're horrible." - Sam

"Did [Carson Cistulli] determine what kind of minor league free agent tends to at least make the majors?" - Ben

"Yeah, he did. But under no circumstances am I going to tell you that. You should have done your research." - Sam
