Great Moments in MLB Managing History: Part II

Earl Weaver may have staked a claim in the "fucked in the head" manager department before your time - I know I barely remember him managing the late 1980's Orioles into obscurity. This was around the same time that I was stocking up on Pete Incaviglia and Cory Snyder rookie cards, so forgive me for not paying attention to a comedic genius. But I do have a few slightly hollow memories of Warner Wolf's CBS sports broadcast highlighting some of Earl Weaver's more memorable tirades. To be honest, all I remember is thinking Weaver was out of his mind - and I think my memory has been honest, because this clip proves just how fucking bananas he really was.

Nice! If he tried using that language today he'd be put on the no-fly list. Sad.

Poor Alice, she really does need "a prick in her". True story.
