People who live in the past generally are afraid to compete in the present. I've got my faults, but living in the past is not one of them. There's no future in it.
Baseball is a simple game. If you have good players and if you keep them in the right frame of mind then the manager is a success
If a team is in a positive frame of mind, it will have a good attitude. If it has a good attitude, it will make a commitment to playing the game right. If it plays the game right, it will winˇunless, of course, it doesn't have enough talent to win, and no manager can make goose-liver pate out of goose feathers, so why worry?
If you have to choose between power and speed and it often turns out you have to make that choice, you've got to go for speed.
A baseball manager is a necessary evil
You're gonna lose some ball games and you're gonna win some ball games and that's about it.
The trick is to realize that after giving your best, there's nothing more to give.
