Great pre-game with Manager Buck Showalter. While incredibly smart on his own right, he clearly ascribes to Earl Weaver’s mantra It’s What you Learn After you Know it all That Counts (also the title of Earl’s book). Buck prods the media for his own answers about the team, issues in the game and the like.
Unfortunately, over the years of being on the radio against the games, moving to Durham and then starting PressBox I have lost that favorite part of the baseball day. Being able to do it for these three days reminds me how much I miss the ritual.
