Excerpt from the 1994 spring training media session pictured above:

Q: Anthony, you posted a 1-16 record last year with the Mets. How happy are you to have a fresh start?
A: Hey, man, do you have any more shirts or jackets? I've only got four layers on right now, and I usually go for five or six.

Q: Anthony, you're projected as the fifth starter this season, but would you be OK with a move to the bullpen?
A: I love peanut butter sandwiches!

Q: What's your response to some of your former teammates' claims that you're not very bright?
A: Look at the hat this guy behind me is wearing! Is that really a hat? It looks like a peanut butter sandwich! Give it here, Mr. Reporter Guy!

Q: Anthony, do you think the Cubbies can win their first World Series in nearly 90 years?
A: (Chewing the reporter's hat) Do you guys watch "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"? That show is hilarious. Will Smith is my cousin!

Q: Anthony, how does that hat taste?
A: I'm so happy to be in Chicago, part of such a great tradition. I really think this year is going to be special, and I hope the fans get behind us from Day 1. I've spent the whole offseason working on my delivery mechanics, and my fastball's up in the mid-90s now. So, let's go White Sox!
