You sometimes hear people complain about the generic quotes most professional athletes spout to the press. You know the type: "I give 110%." "We played a tough team tonight and we just caught the breaks." There are about a hundred more. Well, as far as I can tell, this guy may be the king of the generic quote.

As you may know, Tino Martinez of the Yankees has hit home runs in 5 consecutive games, an incredible feat (the record is 8 consecutive games). Here's a quote that appeared in today's Globe about his recent success:

"I feel good at the plate and I'm seeing the ball well," Martinez said.

Gee, thanks, Tino. We may not have figured that out if you hadn't told us. :-)
