    Well, he’s almost as well-loved as Yogi, but he’ll need about two dozen more of these to be in Yogi’s league as a wordsmith. And though it’s a good line, it doesn’t have that paradoxical quality that Yogi’s best ones do.

    Let’s see…he’ll also need another 11 World Series rings, 11 more all-star appearances, 3 AL MVPs… Maybe not.
