Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"New York Giants executive Garry Schumacher came up with a set of rules to follow when dealing with the cunning ( Branch ) Rickey : 'Don't drink the night before [and] keep your mouth shut and your hands in your pockets.' Rickey once discussed salary with Marty Marion and tried to entice him by saying Marion should simply accept the 'terms I have offered, and I'll take care of you.' Marion wisely replied, 'Give me what I want, and I'll take care of myself.'" - Author Wayne Stewart in Stan the Man: The Life and Times of Stan Musial (Triumph Books, 05/01/2014, Page 36)
