One of the great characters of the game. I still watch some of his tirades on YouTube.

In a lot of ways, Earl Weaver was before his time. Weaver despised the bunt because he knew that man at first, no outs creates a better scoring probability for the offense than man at second, one out.

Weaver was a sabermetric manager well before people started talking about sabermetrics.
