A Quote by Sparky Anderson on baseball, force, good, justice, managers, mind, respect, rules, simplicity, success, and talent

Baseball is a simple game. If you have good players, and you keep them in the right frame of mind, the manager is a success. The players make the manager. It's never the other way. Managing is not running, hitting, or stealing. Managing is getting your players to put out one hundred percent year after year. A player does not have to like a manager and he does not have to respect a manager. All he has to do is obey the rules. Talent is one thing. Being able to go from spring to October is another. You just got caught in a position where you have no position. [Explaining why he was forced to cut a utility player]
