Some of the better excerpts from the Daily News article in the OP:
When asked one time by Orioles outfielder Pat Kelly if he wanted to participate in team chapel and "walk with the lord," Weaver famously replied: ("No thanks. I'd rather walk with the (bleeping) bases loaded."
Throughout his managing career, Weaver was famous for his eschewing of the sacrifice bunt and giving up an out. "When you play for one run, that's usually all you get," he snarled, adding: "I have nothing against the bunt in its place, but most of the time that place is in the bottom of a long-forgotten closet."
I remember a few years back during an O's-Yankees game on YES Ken Singleton told a story where the O's were up by 1 in the 8th at home. Runners on 1B and 2B, 0 out. Singleton sac bunts and the runners both successfully advance. He gets back to the dugout thinking he's done a good thing getting 2 insurance runs into scoring position but instead Earl yells at him. Looking at Singleton's OBP, Earl was dead right.
