The Wright and Wrong Report: Memorable Phrases

Some memorable quotes from our favorite broadcasters:

"Carlos Beltran is the king of the salami!" --Howie Rose of WFAN after Beltran's grand slam gave the Mets a 7-0 lead.

"And the Mets have sent the Braves back to oblivion." --Gary Cohen on Ch. 11 after the Mets won 10-6, completing their first three game sweep ever at Turner Field and first three game sweep in Atlanta in 21 years.

What else is there to say? This sweep was a statement, even as much as Willie Randolph tried to downplay it. The players might not have been around for all the futility, but they must know how much this meant to Mets fans.

Bring on more big series, and I bet we'll see Carlos Beltran carry this team even further.
