? Rick Camp, Atlanta Braves pitcher, after teammate Claudell Washington and the Cincinnati Reds' Mario Soto got into a fight that led to a fine and suspension for both: "It's those rocks they took off the moon. They've got to put them back. Nothing, including the weather, has been the same since."

?Don Rose, San Francisco disc jockey, on the perennially disappointing Giants: "They've played on grass, and they've played on AstroTurf. What they should do is put down a layer of paper in Candlestick Park. After all, the Giants always look good on paper."

? Chris Lewis, surprise finalist at Wimbledon last year, loser in the second round this year, on what it meant to him to reach the 1983 finals: "When I got that far, I started believing I could beat anybody. It gave me a belief in myself that I certainly haven't lived up to since."

? Ken Landreaux, Los Angeles Dodger outfielder: "Winning isn't as important as doing well individually. You can't take teamwork up to the front office to negotiate."
