    "The job of arguing with the umpire belongs to the manager, because it won't hurt the team if he gets thrown out of the game."

    He was 82.

    He's enjoying 3-run homers in the Great Beyond.

    See ya again one day, Earl.

    Died on Orioles' fantasy cruise.
    A real shame. RIP.
    Think of him every time someone hits a 3-run homer.
    And his alternative nickname for Don Stanhouse -- Full Pack -- was as good as the other one, Stan The Man Unusual.

    You can learn more about baseball from "Weaver on Strategy" than any 10 other baseball books combined. RIP

    Funny thing about that is that the game had just started when Earl goes off on the ump.

    RIP. I was a little kid when he managed, so I didn't remember him very much, but I do recall when he first retired and several Brewers had shook his hand at his final game. I thought that was pretty cool.
