Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Earl Smith, known as 'Oil' Smith, a hard-drinking tough-guy catcher who had no fear of ( John ) McGraw or anyone else. 'He's a...anarchist,' said McGraw , who repeatedly suspended Smith. 'He has no respect for law and order'." - Casey Stengel in Stengel: His Life and Times (Robert W. Creamer, University of Nebraska Press, 03/01/1996)
