    Re: Which inspirational quote should Bobby V use to get this team to the playoffs and finally to the World Series?

    Today's ballplayers no longer are motivated out of fear or other military tactics or phony inspiration. In fact, the manager isn't as important as many believe. Casey Stengel could have slept in the dugout and his Yankee teams would still have won the World Series.

    Disagree; I saw tapes of the '52 Series; in that one, down 3-2, Stengel completely outmanaged Dressen (who had the better team on paper, both in '52 & '53) in Games 6 & 7, his 4th as part of 5 consecutive titles

    This is BV's quote: "Guys, I always wanted Morales in the rotation, but I couldn't find a way to leave him in. And I love the way Ciriaco has kick-started us, but I have to let my guy Aviles stay at SS. I know you think I put too much faith in Kalish, Nava but my RF/LF defense is more important than our lineups. Yeah, I say dumb things, but Youks and Middlebrooks know I was kind of joking when I said that stuff. Sure I over-manage, but I'm here to tell you that if you can just forget everything I say and do and just go out there and play the game, then you can do great things. And I'm not asking you to win the pennant. All I'm asking you to do is don't finish under .500. Is that too much to ask? Is it?"

    The players: "Let's do it!!!!"

    Right, because Ciriaco, Kalish, Nava and Morales are the reason the team is where they are.  Great analysis.

    What the f**k happened to the Red Sox I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bobby, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my *ss from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer... "

    I know you are kidding, but I caught a lot of grief the last time I used it. There are always a few who don't get it.

    That's why I did it Mike (cause I remembered the grief you took, not because I am smart).  Plus, the whole speach is important in this case I think.
