You got a hundred more young kids than you have a place for on your club. Every one of them has had a going away party. They have been given the shaving kit and the fifty dollars. They kissed everybody and said, ‘See you in the majors in two years.’ You see these poor kids who shouldn’t be there in the first place. You write on the report card ‘4-4-4 and out.’ That’s the lowest rating in everything. Then you call ’em in and say, ‘It’s the consensus amoung us that we’re going to let you go back home.’ Some of them cry, some get mad, but none of them will leave until you answer them one question, ‘Skipper, what do you think?’ And you gotta look every one of those kids in the eye and kick their dreams in the ass and say no. If you say it mean enough, maybe they do themselves a favor and don’t waste years learning what you can see in a day. They don’t have what it takes to make the majors, just like I never had it.

– Earl Weaver
