Now, you can take this one with a grain of salt, this is hearsay at its finest. A source, who is rather connected, said Charlie Manuel attended dinner with Tommy Lasorda in New York the night before Game 1 of the WORLD SERIES. According to source, who was in attendance, Charlie remained out late (1:30am, really Charlie?) and got very drunk.
Here’s where it becomes the thing legends are made of. When my source said, "Charlie, don't you have a game in like 16 hours?", Charlie replied "Fuck it. I have Lee pitching".
If true, this is my new favorite quote of all-time.
