"DUBBYA" FOR COMMISH? FS1’s Trevor Pryce, on George W. Bush succeeding Bud Selig: “He’s the best guy for the job because when he owned the Texas Rangers, he put a very little investment in it and by the time he left it was a very big payout. He knows how to grow a franchise. I think this is a fantastic idea" (“Crowd Goes Wild,” FS1, 10/30).
GOTTA BE THE SHOES: Fox’ AJ Pierzynski, on Red Sox OF Shane Victorino’s red, white and blue shoes: “I got to give Shane and the people at Nike credit, he had the coolest shoes. I was admiring those things before the game in the clubhouse. He had the coolest shoes on tonight I’ve ever seen” (“Fox Sports Live,” FS1, 10/30). Fox' Ken Rosenthal said the shoes "actually were designed by a friend of Victorino's in Philadelphia and Shane encouraged me to tweet out a photo of the shoes before the game and I was happy to oblige. And I must say, the fashionistas on Twitter approved" ("Cardinals-Red Sox," Fox, 10/30).
