    Re: Earl Weaver passes

    This is a great video of Weaver and umpire Bill Haller. It is a good way to pay tribute to a HOF manager.

    BTW there is lotsa vulgarities in the video.

    Host: Bill Whitehouse, Earl, from, uh, Frederick, Maryland, wants to know why you and the Orioles don't go out and get some more team speed?

    Weaver: Team speed? For xxxxx sake. You get xxxx dammed little fleas on the xxxxx bases, getting picked off trying to steal, getting thrown out, taking runs away from you. You get them big xxx xxxxxx that can hit the xxxx ball out of the ball park, and you can't make any xxx xxxxxx mistakes.

    Maybe Stan the Man can hit a three run homer for him in the next game in Baseball Heaven

    Today was the Orioles annual Fanfest celebration in Baltimore and I read that they had some nice tributes to Earl there. That had to be hard for everyone to celebrate the Orioles great season last year knowing one of their best managers had just passed away. RIP Earl.

    Great manager. He had some really great teams in Baltimore. From 1969 to 1971 there was not a better team. They only got one world series win to how for it though. He had some of the most entertaining arguments a manager could ever have. You don't see those kind anymore. He and Ron Luciano would really get into it. Luciano had some really fiunny stories about the run ins they had. R.I.P Earl Weaver, You made it fun for all of us.

    Obviously he was way before my time but he should be remembered not only for his personality but he was a head of the curb on a lot of things, stressing the importance of OBP, working the counts, etc.

    There is an easily-found Youtube that fills in these blanks. Plus some tomato plant comments. Pretty funny in a Richard Pryor way.

    Weaver only played 4 in games at the AAA level. I may be off base here but I can't recall another succesful manager in the modern era who really didn't make it farther than AA.

    Joe McCarthy is probably the closest
