....and, for you golfers, a good description of the amount of tension that you should grip the golf club with. in golf and in management.....makes me wonder where else it could be applied. I smell a new blogpost coming.

Good quote from Lasorda. I always liked his managerial style. He seemed to get more out of his teams than they seemed capable of (especially the team w/ Kirk Gibson and Orel Hershiser that won the World Series in the late '80s or early '90s).

But my all-time fave quote by a baseball manager on management is from the ol' professor, Casey Stengel:

"The key to being a good manager is keeping the people who hate me away from those who are still undecided."

That's on my facebook page.

Have you read "I Live For This" It's a short biography and there are a great deal of his wisdom nuggets in there. It's a great read for managers. It talks a great deal about his charismatic style.
