Imagine Casey Stengel at one of those. Or Yogi.

the two best Red Sox managers between Dick Williams and Tito were Walpole's Joe Morgan (not the 2d baseman) and Jimy Williams.  Morgan was laconic but got a pass because he talked like a New Englander but Jimy got grief for his countryisms ("if a frog had wings, it wouldn't bump its booty").  both came off as kind of dumb at times but were much, much sharper when it came to baseball than they let on.  Yet another reason to hate Dan Shaughnessy.
