Earl Weaver: 1930-2013

Former Orioles manager Earl Weaver died. He was the best for a billion reasons. Maybe the smartest manager in baseball history. And that includes Tony La Russa who everyone likes to call a genius.

But the best thing Earl Weaver ever did was record this episode of his “Managers Corner” radio show in 1980. Warning: STRONG language. REALLY strong language.

And no, it never actually aired. Pity. Good travels, Earl.
