I do worry about tomorrow's game, but never about next year's job.

I always liked Casey Stengel as a manager because he seemed to have a grasp of so many things.
Of course managers win ball games.
More than anyone else, Hank Aaron made me wish I wasn't a manager.
Fans tend to get too excited by streaks of either kind and I think the press does too. There should be a happy medium.
I'm not afraid to learn from my coaches.
I've won plenty of games by knowing when to take out my pitcher; whom to replace him with; or how to place my infield or outfield to defend properly against the opposing hitter.
I'd rather win two or three, lose one, win two or three more. I'm a great believer in things evening out. If you win a whole bunch in a row, somewhere along the line you're going to lose some too.
Look at misfortune the same way you look at success - Don't Panic! Do you best and forget the consequences.
I put myself through college playing pool.
The toughest thing about managing is knowing your personnel and what it can give you under all conditions.
Perhaps the truest axiom in baseball is that the toughest thing to do is repeat.
It's not the winter that bothers me - it's the summers.
