But I'm not going to walk Barry Bonds, like some teams do, in the first inning with nobody on.


No. 1, these guys out here on this field. They keep my energy level up. They try hard, they don't complain about things - and I'd just like to be with them when things are good, and hopefully we can win a pennant together.


It's nice to come into a town and be referred to as the manager of the Cleveland Indians instead of as the first black manager.


No, I don't think my presence will cause an increase in black attendance at Cleveland.

You have to have a short memory as a closer.


I just didn't have anything to say, so I said nothing.

The way we're going... if I called up another pitcher, he'd just hang up the phone on me.


Managers don't have as much leverage as they used to have. We can't really be the boss.


People come out to see the players. When do you see a manager anyway? When he's out on the field arguing with the umpires, making a fool of himself and you know you can't win, and when he brings out the line-up card.


I know a lot of people on the field - players, coaches, managers - are glad that I'm gone.


If the guys on the bench were as good as the guys you have out there, they'd be out there in first place.


I always tried to do the best. I knew I couldn't always be the best, but I tried to be.
