2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day Onedpratola (not Philly): Manuel in presser: "Just sat there watching.... Pretty good managing." [laughter]

Casey Stengel once said the same thing after his team was no-hit by Paul Dean and shut out by Dizzy Dean in the same doubleheader, essentially, "I know I didn't make any mistakes--I didn't get a chance to." (Steven Goldman)
2009-10-16 13:00:00NLCS Game Two/ALCS Game OneBBBill (Hamilton, Ohio): Re. the Gas House Gang: The Gas House Gang by John Heidenry was a good, balanced account with interesting information on origins of "gas house gang" term. Dizzy and the Gas House Gang by Doug Feldmann was also a good account, but centered more on Dizzy Dean. The chapter on the Gas House Gang in Leo Durocher's Nice Guys Finish Last is very entertaining and informative, as I recall.

Nice Guys kicks ass. Easily one of the greatest baseball books ever. I need to re-read it, having just gotten a promo copy upon its reissue. ("Daffy" Jaffe)
