Casey on Managing:
"It's like I used to tell my barber. Shave and a haircut but don't cut my throat. I may want to do that myself."
when a scout told Stengel about a young pitcher who allowed a single foul ball while pitching a no hitter.
"Get that guy who got the foul. It's hitters we need, not pitchers."
When Don Larsen was doing when he wrapped his car around a telephone pole.
"He was out pretty late or up pretty early. The only thing Larsen fears is sleep."
After trying the aging centerfielder Joe DiMaggio at first base.
"You're gonna make mistakes. You can't worry about them second guessers."
"Take these guys over to the other field. I want to see if they can play on the road."
When Tug McGraw told him, "I can get this guy out, I did the last time I faced him."
Yeah, I know, but it was in the same inning."
On Don Zimmer, who was 0-for-34 at the time of the trade.
"He's the perdotious quotient of the qualificatilus. He's the lower intestine."
"When you're losing, everyone commences to play stupid."
"Whenever I decided to release a guy, I always had his room searched first for a gun. You couldn't take any chances with some of these birds."
"There comes a time in every man's life, and I've had plenty of them."
