Neat article on Earl 


http://news.investors.com/mana...gn=1&p=full

This article is a neat look back at Earl Weaver. It talks abotu how most of his insane arguing theatrics weren't caused by loose cannon raw anger, but were cold and calculated productions to make sure he got tossed after a bad call rather than one of his players. Earl is quoted as telling players "I'm not the one who will hit the 3 run homer, so let me deal with teh umpires"

I also like Ken Singelton's quote where he said "Early got tossed 6 more times that aren't listed because he got tossed before the games started." (Maybe those ejections were anger fueled...hahaha)

Thanks, Skip.  I saw my fair share of his ejections in the mid-70's and 80's.  Loved how he'd turn his cap around and belly up to the ump who was usually about a foot taller than him.cool
