The Sorest Loser That Ever Lived

Earl Weaver died last night. Weaver was the ultimate manifestation of The Baseball Manager for me as a kid. Way more than Martin. Just a bit more than Lasorda. The character he painted in my mind is unlike any other: Weaver was THE Manager. I hated him. And loved watching Yankees-Orioles games more than any other.

Yes, indeed. Make sure to read Alex Belth’s excerpt.
