Earl Weaver muses on the value of baserunning speed

Remember when Bill James sort-of-quoted Earl Weaver on the sacrifice? If I remember, he had Earl saying something like "you can take the bunt and shove it up someone’s ass and leave it there."

I thought Bill was somewhat joking. But now, after hearing
this (courtesy of Jeff Merron), I’m thinking that was probably a direct quote from Earl.

Now I much better understand why Bill liked Earl so much.
