Look at misfortune the same way you look at success - Don't Panic! Do you best and forget the consequences.
It's not the winter that bothers me - it's the summers.
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.
More than anyone else, Hank Aaron made me wish I wasn't a manager.
Perhaps the truest axiom in baseball is that the toughest thing to do is repeat.
