Editors Note: Mindless banter is common in baseball. With 39 men sitting, watching the game while 1 of their teammates is at bat, it's not hard to understand why. While the crowd may be coming up with witty one-liners intent on taking the batters focus away from his turn at bat, his teammates are equally focused on providing him the encouragement he needs. This invariably results in some absolute gems of wisdom as the list below will show.
