To me and lots of other people, Jim Leyland has been a class act manager. I looked forward to his post game analyses — understated and funny, down to earth, smart. I happened to be free during most of his retirement press conference yesterday. Here’s a 4 minute clip from the press conference.

Today’s word: Ernie Harwell’s classic recitation for many opening days.
“For, lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;
the flowers appear on the earth;
the time for singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.”
Song of Solomon
