"I found that players are very suspicious of computers much like the general public. They fear them as cold and inhuman. I couldn't make them understand that I was still going to make my own decisions. I wasn't going to let the computer make them for me. When you have an overpowering relief pitcher like a Gossage in the bullpen, you don't worry so much about percentages." - (1986)
