    Jay Johnstone has that in its entirety in his first book, Temporary Insanity. The Elia tirade got it banned from being sold at Dodger Stadium. He also features some good stuff from Tommy LaSorda.

    I've always liked his 85% of the people work, the rest come here quote.

    Lee, I Have A Deadline To Make. Ya Got Anything For Me ?

    Heard it many times but never read it. It's even funnier in black& white.

    Any number of sentences could be the greatest baseball quote of all time. The problem is you can barely find 2 consecutive words that are quotable.

    Thanks for posting it and Thank You Lee Elia, you sir are a national treasure.

    started a topic Lee Elia's Tirade (transcript & audio)

    Lee Elia's Tirade (transcript & audio)

    Finally found a transcript and audio of Cubs manager Lee Elia's (in)famous tirade on April 29, 1983.

    http://www.speakeasy.org/~bucky/elia_tirade.html

    It goes without saying that because of the language of the audio . . . it's NSFW or NSFC (not safe for children)
