Casey Stengel:
“Good pitching will stop good hitting and vice-versa.”
Once asked about Berry Stainbeck, “He’s dead at the present time.”
On Jimmy Piersall, as crazy a player as MLB has ever had, “He’s great but you gotta play him in a cage.”
On the mammoth Frank Howard, Stengel once asked this: “How can a guy who’s so big and strong hit the ball so near?”
On his partying Mets players, Casey once said “I got players what got bad watches, they can’t tell midnight from noon.”
