My ol' buddy who lives in Montana -- but sure knows his American League history -- swears to me that Earl Weaver was known to give post-game locker-room interviews while buck naked and smoking a cigarette. 

True?

Did he blow smoke rings?

I don't know about Earl other than the beer and smoke. Which were constant.  William Showalter got his nickname by his clubhouse attire.

With all of that color, and all of that style and all of those umpire-baiting moments (not to mention the chain-smoking and his well-known penchant for conducting post game interviews in the nude — back in the clubhouse, of course), Weaver will never be forgotten by anyone who ever saw him manage.

"Deadline-aware writers, seeking him out in his office shortly after another last out, would often find him behind his desk gnawing on a chicken wing, sans uniform and undies: a five-foot-seven, birthday-suited unsentimentalist still alight with the complexities and hovering alternate possibilities of the trifling game we’d all just attended."

It's even a better picture with the chicken wing!  lol

If standing on my lawn drinking a cold beer, holding a cigarette between my pointer and middle finger, gnawing on a chicken wing, while nude, except for maybe a low-hanging Orioles t-shirt - - where only the southern hemispheres might be seen by passersby - - would scare away all the dog people that don't pick up after their k-9's, I think I might employ that methodology of communicating with interested -- or uninterested - -parties as they pass by. ;)

Unsentimentalists unite!

I suspect @Roy Firestone could confirm this or debunk it.

No way Earl was anywhere 5’7”. At Earls statue day Buck towered over him.

    • o   Jorge Lopez is aiming for his 3rd consecutive Quality start ...... since August 25th, Lopez has tallied a 3.81 ERA and a 1.235 WHIP over 28.33 Innings Pitched.   Taijuan Walker has strangely flip-flopped his ERA nd WHIP numbers after being acquired in a trade with the Mariners ...... with the Mariners, he tallied a modest 4.00 ERA with an exceptional 1.074 WHIP. With the Blue Jays, Lopez has tallied an exceptional 1.54 ERA with a rather high 1.414 WHIP.  Walker's BB-rate with the Mariners was 2.667 per 9 innings, while his BB-rate with the Blue Jays is 4.243.     BALTIMORE O RIOLES Austin Charles Brian "C.B."

    • Last series of the season, the homestretch, Lopez versus who cares? Go Os! Savor every hit and run, savor even the errors and the gaffes, because after Sunday, the sun sets until Pitchers & Catchers report...if they do. edit: and if you DO care, it’s Taiwan Walker flinging for the Jays.
    • Hays should be on the IL by then.
    • Eddie Gamboa did make the majors with the Rays in 2016 and Baseball Reference has him wearing an O's hat.  Does that count?
    • My guess: If they trade Cobb at the deadline they will already have paid 2/3s of his salary.   If Elias can dump half of Cobb's salary for a Dominican player that will probably never make the majors......he is gone. I don't know Elias plans for Diaz but if he think he will be promoted by some time in May he will need to find at bats for him.   Nunez  staying on a 30 homer pace means he could make 2 or 3 million in arbitration.   I don't see Elias paying that when he can replace him with a current O's prospect make less than 600K.   Alberto will be a one and a half years from FA in July.  So if someone makes an offer that gets Elias a good return Alberto  is gone.  Valaika is almost the same player.   Hit lefties but not righties.  Plays a decent 2B with some versatility.  And Valaika will be cheaper by a million or two. Davis probably stays on the 26 man roster so they can see if there is a work stoppage in the next two years that saves the O's part of his salary.   So the bench is Davis, a catcher, an outfielder and an infielder that can play SS well enough to backup Iglesias.   With Martin at AAA to start the season Elias has to go find that player.
