A story about Pedro Guerrero:

When I managed I worked my payers hard.  We didn’t work by the clock, we worked by the sun.  In fact, we would turn on the lights at Hollman Stadium in Vero Beach so many times just to keep taking extra BP.

One year during spring training in Vero Beach, Florida, Pedro Guerrero came to me and was a bit upset.  He told me that he rented a house on the beach for a lot of money, but he hadn’t seen the water yet because the sun had already set by the time he got home.

Yes I worked them hard, but as I told my players many times, you may hate me now but you’ll love my in October!
