TheExpos.com - Brought to you by The Gazette

Besides Urbina rumors, some spicy tidbits are included in this article. Here’s one particularly striking quote:

“I went out there and (umpire) Jerry Layne told me the ball boy was in play. I told him: ‘He’s too damn fat to be in play.’ I told him to get him out of there because he couldn’t get out of the way of the ball. Layne asked me: ‘Are you serious?’ I told him: ‘I’m as serious as a heart attack.’ ”

- Indians manager Charlie Manuel, after outfielder Marty Cordova tried, and failed, to field a ball under the ball boy.
