    Just caught Charlie Manuel... interesting guy...

    It would have been awesome to have today's media technology back in the old days...

    Can you imagine Casey Stengel and Yogi Berra having that forum, or Dizzy Dean?

    "Being with a woman all night never hurt no professional baseball player. It's staying up all night looking for a woman that does him in."
    Casey Stengel

    "Well, God is getting an earful today. I hope he understands the infield fly rule, the hit and run, how to pitch to Hornsby with men on, when it would do you some good to bunt and what happened in the 1913 World Series. He will get an illustrated lecture on the hook slide, the best place to play Babe Ruth, when to order the infield in and how to steal on left handers.

    ” At the end of all this, the narrator will doff his cap and a sparrow will fly out. They finally slipped and called a third strike past Casey Stengel. He can’t argue the call. The game is over. Dusk is settling on the bleachers, the lights are turned on in the press box where ‘my writers’ are putting ‘30’ to the final bits of Stengelese they will ever type.”
    -- Jim Murray on the death of Casey Stengel (“Baseball’s Greatest Quotations” By: Paul Dickson, pg.300)
