Jerry Manuel, in his post game press conference, with reporters, was asked, “Is it too early, Jerry, to say that your hitting philosophy with the early BP and the batting practice, has kind of translated, that fast. Or, do you think it’s coincidence ?”
Manuel’s reply, “Three years, Jeff and Fred, I need three years to get that right.” Hysterical laughter, from the media, followed.
Manuel seems to be winning over the media and fans with his sense of humor. It's fun to see a manager with attitude, a sense of humor, and personality.
