David (San Jose): Joe- any Frank Robinson as a player story you can tell us? I think we Bay Area fans forget that this great athlete is one of us. Joe Morgan: Frank was my manager in San Fransisco for two years. I learned a lot about winning and losing. I always remember how he wouldn't let us get comfortable losing. Some teams are allowed to lose, as long as they don't get embarrased. One night after we won, we chewed us out because we had played horribly. He told us we didn't deserve to win. I didn't agree with him but I still remember that. He simply isn't getting enough credit for what he is doing with the Nationals.
Listen, Joe -- that story, about how once after you had won a game your manager said he was upset because the team hadn't played well, is really, really, really, really, really, really, really exciting. But maybe read the question again.
